Awad (23-10) last fought in October, when he had a four-fight winning streak snapped by former UFC and WEC titleholder Ben Henderson. Girtz (15-8) will return almost a year after his first-round defeat to Bellator star Michael Chandler.
Straus (25-8) hasn’t fought since suffering a near-fatal motorcycle accident in Dec. 2017. The ex-Bellator champion looks to snap a two-fight losing skid to Patricio Freire and Emmanuel Sanchez. Kruchten (12-4) lost to Aaron Pico in his promotion debut in Jan. 2018.
