UFC 164: Henderson vs. Pettis was a mixed martial arts event held on August 31, 2013, at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.[3][4]

Background[edit]

The main event was expected to be a UFC Lightweight Championship bout between the current champion Benson Henderson and top contender TJ Grant.[5] However, Grant was forced out of the bout with an injury and was replaced by Anthony Pettis.[6] Henderson and Pettis met in 2010 at the final event for World Extreme Cagefighting, WEC 53. Pettis defeated Henderson via unanimous decision to win the final WEC Lightweight title in a bout that was widely praised by MMA fans and pundits alike as the fight of the year.[7]

Co-featured was a bout between two former UFC Heavyweight Champions, Frank Mir and Josh Barnett.[8]

Ryan Couture was expected to face Quinn Mulhern at this event. However, Mulhern was forced out with a hand injury and was replaced by Al Iaquinta.[9]

Yoel Romero was expected to face Derek Brunson at this event. However, Brunson was forced out with an injury and was replaced by newcomer Brian Houston.[10] Houston ended up also getting injured and Romero was removed from the card.[11]
