In the main event, Anderson Silva put his UFC Middleweight Championship belt on the line against Nate Marquardt. The card's other championship match had Sean Sherk defending his UFC Lightweight Championship belt against Hermes Franca.

Jason Gilliam was the third choice for Chris Lytle's opponent. Originally scheduled to compete was Jeff Joslin, who withdrew due to a training injury.[2] His replacement, Drew Fickett, also withdrew later due to injury.[3]
