The event will be the first UFC event broadcast on Fox Sports 1.23 The main event is expected to be contested between former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Maurício Rua and Chael Sonnen.4 The bout was first linked to UFC 161, as Sonnen was mentioned as a short notice replacement for Rua's original opponent Antônio Rogério Nogueira, who was out of the bout with a back injury. Visa issues prevented Sonnen from getting into Canada, resulting in Rua being pulled from the event altogether.5 Nick Ring was expected to face Uriah Hall at the event. However, Ring was pulled from the bout and replaced by Josh Samman6 Samman was subsequently forced from the bout and replaced by returning UFC fighter John Howard.7
On the third time of asking, Uriah Hall (7-3 MMA, 0-1 UFC) finally has an opponent for his first fight since losing TUF 17. Returning to the UFC after a torrid run is John Howard (20-8 MMA, 4-3 UFC), who gets his wish for a UFC fight in his hometown of Boston, MA. Howard is giving up 5 inches in height and 8 inches of reach, but those physical disadvantages didn't stop Kelvin Gastelum from upsetting Hall. This is a doubly important fight for Uriah, whose hype and promise took a big hit this past April, and he'll look to get his first official UFC win in impressive fashion.
