UFC 164: Henderson vs. Grant fight card

Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE

The UFC returns to Milwaukee for the first time since 2011, and the main event features a lightweight title fight between Ben Henderson and T.J. Grant.

When the UFC came to Milwaukee, Wisconsin in August 2011, lightweight champion Ben Henderson was put in the co-main event slot against Jim Miller. Henderson not only pulled off the upset but he absolutely dominated Miller. From there he won his top contender bout against Clay Guida and in 2012 became the new UFC lightweight champion. He will defend his title against Canada's T.J. Grant, who is 5-0 at lightweight and is coming off an impressive annihilation of Gray Maynard at UFC 160.

Frank Mir and Josh Barnett will tangle in the co-main event, as Barnett looks to insert his name into the very thin list of UFC HW contenders. Chad Mendes will face Clay Guida while Erik Koch battles Dustin Poirier in two featherweight bouts. Brandon Vera's latest re-invention will see him return to heavyweight and fight veteran Ben Rothwell.

The bout order is not set beyond the main and co-main event, but here's what the fight lineup looks like for the August 31st PPV:

Ben Henderson vs. T.J. Grant
Frank Mir vs. Josh Barnett
Chad Mendes vs. Clay Guida
Erik Koch vs. Dustin Poirier
Jamie Varner vs. Gleison Tibau
Ben Rothwell vs. Brandon Vera
Chico Camus vs. Kyung Ho Kang
Soa Palelei vs. Nikita Krylov
Louis Gaudinot vs. Tim Elliott
Derek Brunson vs. Yoel Romero
Jared Hamman vs. Magnus Cedenblad
Pascal Krauss vs. Hyun Gyu Lim
