The bracket will be comprised of Stevie Ray (12-4), Ivan Buchinger (23-4), Mick Sinclair (12-3), and Jason Ball (20-12). The pairings are expected to be announced soon.

The semifinal matches in the tournament will feature two five-minute rounds, with a third overtime round in the event of a draw. The finals will be a five round bout, similar to title fights.

McGregor recently vacated the title to sign with the UFC, leaving the promotion with no lightweight champion.
