The UFC 284 early preliminary card will feature featherweights Shane Young and Blake Bilder facing off at the RAC Arena in Perth, Australia. This portion of the card is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. ET and will be streamed on UFC Fight Pass. Later on in the day, a main event showdown between lightweight champion Islam Makhachev and featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski caps the card.

Young (13-6) is on a two-fight losing streak, looking to get back on track. A solid all-around pro, he has tons of experience in comparison to Bilder. He is one of a number of fighters from Australia featured on this card and is hoping some hometown magic can get him back in the win column.

Bilder (7-0-1) is a skilled fighter, who relies on his ability to catch his opponents off guard with submissions. He has technically not lost a fight and has one draw. His latest win, a submission over Alex Morgan on Dana White’s Contender Series in August 2022. This will be his UFC debut.
