Ebersole (50-15-1-1) joined the UFC in February 2011 as a late injury replacement. The veteran fighter stepped in to face Chris Lytle on less than three weeks notice when Carlos Condit was unable to compete due to injury. Ebersole stunned fans with an upset unanimous decision victory over the heavily favored Lytle. The unorthodox Ebersole also earned Fight of the Night honors for his performance in Australia that night.
Ebersole added three more victories to his UFC record before dropping a split decision to James Head in his last outing. That loss took place in July 2012, Ebersole has been inactive since the defeat.
Story made his UFC debut in June 2009, dropping a unanimous decision to John Hathaway. Following that defeat, Story ran off six straight victories and was working his way up the welterweight rankings.
That winning streak came to an end when Story lost a unanimous decision to last minute replacement Charlie Brenneman at UFC on Versus 4. Since the loss to Brenneman, Story has had difficulty finding traction, going 2-3.
UFC 167 will take place on November 16 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The card will be headlined by Georges St. Pierre putting his UFC welterweight title on the line against No. 1 ranked Johny Hendricks.
