Vladimir Matyushenko was released from the UFC in January, following a two-fight losing skid inside the promotion. After a 4-1 start to his UFC career, he had back-to-back first round stoppage losses to Alex Gustafsson and Ryan Bader.

Former Bellator light heavyweight title holder, Christian M’Pumbu returns to action for the first time since losing his belt to Attila Vegh at Bellator 91. He previously lost a non-title affair to Travis Wiuff, getting dominated in the wrestling department en route to a unanimous decision loss.
