To kick off the Showtime broadcast, Tarec Saffiedine and Scott Smith face off, followed by a welterweight contest between contenders Paul Daley and Tyron Woodley. Prior to the co-main and main event, middleweight contenders Robbie Lawler and Tim Kennedy will each look to inch closer to a title shot.
In the evening’s two featured bouts, two of the best women fighters in the world and two legends of the sport will face off in the co-main event and main event, respectively. In the fourth bout of the main card, Marloes Coenen puts her title on the line against Miesha Tate, while Dan Henderson and Fedor Emelianenko meet in the night’s featured contest.
But before the ten main card fighters hit the cage, a pair of preliminary bouts will kick off the evening. In the first bout, Alexis Davis will do battle against Julie Kedzie, and Lyle Beerbohm takes on Gesias Cavalcante.
The highly-anticipated event is set for July 30 in Illinois at the Sears Centre Arena. Emelianenko also headlined the last card to take place at that arena, defeating Brett Rogers via technical knockout in 2009.
