Tonight, we will bear witness to one of the most thoroughly talent-laden cards put together for free television in the UFC's history. 

Obviously, the headline features the return to light heavyweight for former WEC champion Brian Stann, and former PRIDE champion Wanderlei Silva. Beyond that, though, there are a slew of intriguing matchups to look forward to.

Diego Sanchez returns to lightweight to meet Takanori Gomi in what is sure to be a back-and-forth slugfest. Dong Hyun Kim and Siyar Bahardurzada fight for a likely top-10 spot in the welterweight rankings. Yushin Okami and Hector Lombard do battle in a critical middleweight tilt. Stefan Struve and Mark Hunt collide to determine, perhaps, a heavyweight title contender. 

And there's more! So stay tuned here, folks.
