Lombard won his last contest against Josh Burkman, he then tested positive for steroids. Prior to his infraction Lombard was scheduled for a number one contender showdown against Rory MacDonald. The UFC pulled him from that bout and gave MacDonald the title shot.

Anderson Silva, who should also be on the docket, has requested an extension and will not appear.
