Former Ultimate Fighter finalist Vinny Magalhaes will continue his second UFC run against standout wrestler Phil Davis, who has lost just once in 11 professional bouts.

Finally, Jersey native Jim Miller will get the chance to fight in his hometown against Pat Healy, a lightweight contender that has won his last six consecutive contests.
