Popular light heavyweight Fabio Maldonado will look to get back in the win column when he meets up with Hans Stringer, and a lightweight bout will see Fabricio Camoes pitted against Josh Shockley.

Plus, flyweight veterans collide when Wilson Reis takes on Scott Jorgensen.

In the main event, Jose Aldo defends his UFC featherweight championship against top contender Chad Mendes in a long-awaited rematch.
