At first, Morales was looking to take on Alexander Hernandez at UFC 249 back in April. However, their fight fell through due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Coincidentally enough, the two fighters still wound up on the same card, but with different opponents. Hernandez will be taking on Drew Dober on the main card sometime later in the night.
