The UFC's welterweight division is in the spotlight tonight with former title challenger Thiago Alves and standout Danish striker Martin Kampmann preparing to fight in the main event for UFC on FX 2.

Kampmann enters the bout having come off of his impressive win over ultra-aggressive challenger Rick Story while Alves rebounded from losing to Story when he defeated Papy Abedi in the first round at UFC 138.

Both are looking to get back into title contention after some tough losses, and their intriguing style clash should give fans a fight to remember.

The UFC's flyweight division will also be introduced on the card, as former WEC title challenger Joseph Benavidez takes on Yasushiro Urushitani and former UFC title challenger Demetrious Johnson battles Ian McCall.

Johnson is coming off a loss to reigning bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz while Benavidez has gone 2-0 in the UFC with wins over Eddie Wineland and Ian Loveland.

Both McCall and Urushitani will be making their UFC debuts.

The fourth main card bout features middleweights Court McGee and Constantinos Philippou. McGee will be looking to stop Philippou's two-fight win streak, which includes victories over Jared Hamman and Jorge Rivera.

The preliminary card will mostly be televised on Fuel TV and with one bout being shown on Facebook.
