Other announced bouts on the card include Mike Swick fighting for welterweight title contendership against Martin Kampmann, Josh Koscheck welcoming veteran Frank Trigg back to the Octagon, and a lightweight clash between Tyson Griffin and Hermes Franca.

Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic and Sean Sherk are also reported to be in action at the event.
