Josh Barnett makes his long anticipated return to the UFC, following a eleven-year hiatus from the promotion, despite being considered a top 10 heavyweight since his departure. His last four fights have taken place under the Strikeforce banner, where Barnett amassed a 3-1 record with wins over Brett Rogers, Sergei Kharitonov, and Nandor Guelmino, while losing to Daniel Cormier in the Heavyweight Grand Prix final.

Twelve-year UFC veteran, Frank Mir once again finds himself at a crossroad of his career, losing his last two fights inside the octagon. Mir had a three-fight win streak snapped in May of last year, getting stopped by Junior Dos Santos in the second round at UFC 146. Most recently, he was outclassed by rising superstar Daniel Cormier, losing a unanimous decision at UFC on FOX 7.
