Yancy Medeiros was expected to face Li Jingliang at the event. However in early January, Medeiros pulled out for undisclosed reasons and was replaced by promotional newcomer Bobby Nash.
A middleweight bout between former Bellator Middleweight Champion Hector Lombard and Brad Tavares was expected to take place at this event, but was scrapped on January 10 due to undisclosed reasons.
A week before the event, promotional newcomer John Phillips pulled out of his light heavyweight bout against Marcos Rogério de Lima and was replaced by fellow newcomer Jeremy Kimball.
