With such a stacked card on tap in Milwaukee, UFC 164 is sure to generate extraordinary pressure for a cluster of fighters, several of them company staples.
Lightweight champ Benson Henderson will get his crack at revenge against Anthony Pettis in the main event, plus former UFC heavyweight linchpins Frank Mir and Josh Barnett will scrap in the co-main event.
Twenty other warriors will join Henderson, Pettis, Mir and Barnett on the UFC 164 card.
Some of these men will have their backs up against the wall, while others will try to capitalize on once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.
Here are the fighters sitting on the hot seat at UFC 164.
