Also announced earlier in the day was a women’s bantamweight matchup between Macy Chiasson and Lina Lansberg.

The card as it stands has three official bouts:

  • Thiago Alves vs. Gunnar Nelson
  • Macy Chiasson vs. Lina Lansberg
  • Ion Cutelaba vs. Khalil Rountree

UFC Copenhagen takes place at Royal Arena on September 28 and will be streamed on ESPN+. There is no headliner as of now, but it is expected to be a middleweight contest between Jack Hermansson and Jared Cannonier.
