Ecuadorian contender Vera is the all-time UFC leader for finishes in the bantamweight division with nine and comes into the bout off the back of a career-best win over fellow contender Rob Font.

Cruz, meanwhile, battled back from adversity on his last outing to defeat Pedro Munhoz in December, securing successive wins for the first time since June 2016 in the process.

With a flurry of activity at the top of the 135lb division over the coming weeks and months, a win for either man would see them move into a strong position to call for the next shot at the champion - whoever that may be.

Can Vera hit heights he's never reached before - or will Cruz write another chapter in one of MMA's most incredible comeback stories?
