Lim's original opponent, Kiichi Kunimoto instead faced Luiz Dutra Jr. Tatsuya Kawajiri was expected to face Hacran Dias at the event. However, Dias pulled out of the bout citing an injury. Kawajiri instead faced promotional newcomer Sean Soriano. UFC newcomer Will Chope was originally scheduled to face fellow newcomer Bekbulat Magomedov on this card.
