Fili, 30, is coming off a split-decision win over Charles Jourdain at UFC on ESPN 10 in June. “Touchy” has won three of his past four fights overall, with the lone blemish coming against Sodiq Yusuff, who is unbeaten in the UFC.
Mitchell, 25, meanwhile, will attempt to build on his status as one of the UFC’s most exciting rising stars. The Arkansas native has yet to lose as a pro, including four-straight in the UFC. His signature octagon win thus far was a rarely seen Twister finish at UFC on ESPN 7 in December.

- Anderson Silva vs. Uriah Hall
- Dustin Jacoby vs. Justin Ledet
- Maurice Greene vs. Greg Hardy
- Amir Albazi vs. Raulian Paiva
- Cortney Casey vs. Priscila Cachoeira
- Aaron Phillips vs. Adrian Yanez
