There are four other match-ups on the main card, including Peruvian born Kenny Florian of the U.S. (14 5 1) against Diego Nunez of Brazil (16 1 0). The last time the two slugged it out was in an episode of the MMA Live television series, with Nunez emerging as the winner.

In the other main events, Norway’s Jon Olav Einemo (6 1 0) faces Dave Herman of the U.S. (20 2 0), Demian Maia of Brazil (14 2 0) battles Mark Munos of the U.S. (10 2 0) and Donald Cerrone of the U.S. (14 3 0) spars with Vagner Rocha of Brazil (96 1 0).
