WEC Middleweight Champion Paulo Filho fought again against Chael Sonnen in the main event of the evening. The fight was supposed to be a title bout for the belt but was changed to a regular bout after Filho failed to make to make weight.

The event was originally scheduled for September 10, 2008 but was postponed due to the threat of Hurricane Ike.
