It’s the dawn of a new era for the UFC and two of its current champions will be front and center when fight night rolls around.

On Friday, officials released the poster for UFC on ESPN+, the promotion’s first event of the ESPN era, and it features flyweight champion Henry Cejudo and bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw in stark black-and-white.

The main event bout is being billed as “Champ vs. Champ” as Dillashaw will drop down to 125 pounds to challenge for Cejudo’s recently won title. Cejudo called for a matchup with Dillashaw after dethroning longtime flyweight king Demetrious Johnson in August.

Meanwhile, Dillashaw will look to add a second title to his collection after reclaiming the bantamweight belt from Cody Garbrandt in November of last year and then successfully defending it in their rematch at UFC 227.

UFC on ESPN+ 1 takes place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn and will air live on the ESPN+ streaming service.

See the updated card below (bout order to be determined):

Henry Cejudo vs. T.J. Dillashaw

Paige VanZant vs. Rachael Ostovich
