The UFC's second announce team made their debut at this event, featuring former Bellator announcer Jon Anik on play-by-play and UFC lightweight Kenny Florian on color commentary. Anik and Florian had previously worked together as hosts of the ESPN2 series MMA Live.
A featherweight bout between Charles Oliveira and Robert Peralta was briefly linked to this event, but it was later confirmed that Oliveira would instead be facing Eric Wisely a week later at UFC on Fox: Evans vs. Davis.
Rafaello Oliveira was expected to fight Reza Madadi at the event. However, after a hand injury, Oliveira pulled out of the bout and was replaced by Fabrício Camões. Madadi would later withdraw from the bout due to injury as well and was replaced by promotional newcomer Tommy Hayden.
This event marked the UFC debut of future UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
