Edwards (9-2) made his UFC debut and was defeated by Claudio Silva at UFC Fight Night 55 by split decision. He returned in April and scored a knockout in eight seconds as he defeated Seth Baczynski at UFC Fight Night 64. Just like Edwards, Pawlak (11-1) lost his UFC debut last year and is coming off a win at UFC Fight Night 64. His win came against Sheldon Westcott by unanimous decision and it was only his second win by decision.

Whiteford (11-2) was defeated by Jim Hettes in his UFC debut in 2013 and is coming off a decision win against Daniel Pineda at UFC 171. The win over Pineda was his fifth win by decision and this will be his first fight since that victory. Redmond (10-5) entered the UFC at the beginning of the year and lost a decision against Mirsad Bektic. Prior to that fight, he had won back to back fights and nine of his career wins are by stoppage.
