Canadian MMA veteran, Steve Vigneault returns to fighting after being absent from the sport for over a year. This will be only his third appearance in the cage since 2006. Vigneault defeated Dan Chambers by first round TKO in his last appearance back in November of 2009 for Ringside MMA.

Matt MacGrath stopped a two-fight losing skid after earning a unanimous decision victory over Ryan Machan for Warrior-1 late last year. Previous to the Machan win, MacGrath lost back-to-back fights against Claude Patrick and Jonathan Goulet.
