Manhoef may not be able to fight Yoel. He cut his hand badly punching a car window to get a burglar. It looked pretty nasty from what I saw but fights not called off yet

Long vs. Gouti
Thibault Gouti, DEC
Thibault Gouti is very underrated because of his less than stellar UFC career (1-5). But one of his loss was the Sage Northcutt fight, where he dropped him and hurt him badly multiple times, while Sage did nothing other than a few takedowns without meaningfull offense. The decision was a clear robbery as almost every MMA media scored the fight for Gouti. Another loss he had was a very fun back and forth Fight of the Night against Haqparast, so I wouldn't count him out here against Long. Good signing anyway.
