Luke Barnatt was expected to face Clint Hester at UFC Fight Night 63. However, Hester pulled out of the fight in early March due to a broken foot. Subsequently, Barnatt was pulled from the card entirely in favor of a matchup with Mark Muñoz at this event. It also became the final fight of Mark Muñoz's career.
Alex White was expected to face Mark Eddiva at the event. However, on April 26, it was announced that White was forced out of the fight due to an undisclosed injury. Eddiva faced promotional newcomer Levan Makashvili.
Royston Wee missed weight on his first attempt at the weigh ins, coming in at 137 lbs and made no attempts to cut further. Instead, he was fined 20 percent of his fight purse, which went to Ning Guangyou.
