Both are known for their wide-open style and aggressive submission games.
 
Rounding out the main card, Guam’s undefeated lightweight Jon "Super Saiyan" Tuck--who suffered a memorable toe injury in the elimination bouts of TUF Live--will make his UFC debut against "The Mongolian Wolf" Tiequan Zhang.
