Zak Cummings was briefly linked to a bout with Kenny Robertson at the event. Cummings was pulled from the fight in favor of a matchup with Gunnar Nelson a few days later at UFC Fight Night 46 after his opponent Ryan LaFlare was removed from that card. Subsequently, Robertson was removed from the card entirely and rescheduled to face Ildemar Alcântara a week earlier at UFC 175.
The preliminary card bout between Cláudia Gadelha and Tina Lähdemäki was the first women's strawweight fight in UFC history.
