(More info including ticket links.)

Also on the card, undefeated 12-0 Stanislav Nedkov meets fearsome Brazilian striker Thiago Silva at light heavyweight. Plus, South Korean MMA pioneer "Stun Gun" Dong Hyun Kim will appear in a pivotal welterweight bout against Brazil’s Paulo Thiago.
 
Ultimate Fighter season six winner Mac Danzig will meet former PRIDE and Shooto champion "The Fireball Kid" Takanori Gomi in a lightweight war. South Korea's premier and most exciting bantamweight, Kyung Ho Kang, will make his UFC debut against TUF 12 fan favorite Alex "Bruce Leeroy" Caceres. Both are known for their wide-open style and aggressive submission games.
 
Rounding out the main card, Guam’s undefeated lightweight Jon "Super Saiyan" Tuck--who suffered a memorable toe injury in the elimination bouts of TUF Live--will make his UFC debut against "The Mongolian Wolf" Tiequan Zhang.

The featured prelim bout will feature the overdue face-off between flyweights Yasuhiro Urushitani and John Lineker, both known for their heavily offensive striking styles. Their first meeting was scrapped when UFC 151 was cancelled. The bout between bantamweights Takeya Mizugaki and Jeff Hougland, originally slated for the ill-fated event, has also been rebooked for the Macao fight.

The 7-1 Tom DeBlass, a training partner of former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, has verbally agreed to drop down to middleweight to face Japan’s Riki Fukuda. Coming off of a five-fight win streak, Korean fighter "The Ace" Hyun Gyu Lim will make his UFC debut against undefeated Brazilian Marcelo Guimaraes.
