The fight card will air live on Fox Sports 1 and will be headlined by a rematch as Mauricio “Shogun” Rua meets Dan Henderson.

Rua (22-8) is coming off a knockout of the night victory at UFC Fight Night 33 against James Te Huna in December and the victory snapped a two fight losing streak. It was his first win since UFC on FOX 4 in August of 2011 as he defeated Brandon Vera by TKO in the fourth round.
Henderson (29-11) has signed a new deal with the UFC and he is currently on a three fight losing streak. His last win came against Rua and his defeats during his losing streak have come against Lyoto Machida, Rashad Evans, and Vitor Belfort.
