Also on the card are Chicagoland natives Christian Uflacker, Mark Miller, and Deray Davis.

9-5 IFL and TUF 9 vet Mark Miller, holding a knockout victory over Josh Neer, will be set to take on 5-1-1 Deray Davis.  Miller, the more experienced fighter plans on getting back on track after facing two professional losses in 2008 and a loss in the The Ulimate Fighter house (with an added win against former teammate Kevin Knabjain).  Deray Davis will also be looking to rebuild himself after suffering a loss to Jessue Juarez at Bellator FC 6.

2-0 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Christian “Xaropinho” Uflacker will be fighting on the card as well against fellow Brazilian Jonatas Novaes with a record of 4-2.  Christian Uflacker has two submission wins NW Indiana event Total Fight Challenge, and runs a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu team in Summit, IL – The Uflacker Academy.  Both fighters are on winning streaks and will be looking to outsmart each other, showing which fighter is the superior grappler.
