This will be the UFC's second event in Germany and second in mainland Europe. The sport has been met with severe criticism by German media, which led to the banning of minors from the first German UFC event (UFC 99). 

The sport itself was actually banned from broadcast altogether in Germany in March 2010 due to the "extent of violence [being] shown to be unacceptable." Regardless, UFC plans to combat the opposition, after stating: "Not getting TV isn't going to stop us; we're going to keep going. We can't get into Ontario; we're opening an office there. It doesn't bother us."

Vitor Belfort was set to face Yushin Okami in the main event, with the winner receiving a middleweight title shot. However, on September 21, 2010, Belfort withdrew with what was first said to be an injury. It was later reported that Belfort pulled out of the fight to face Anderson Silva. Nate Marquardt will now face Yushin Okami in the main event in what is expected to be a title eliminator bout.

Vladimir Matyushenko was scheduled to face Jason Brilz at this event, but Brilz was forced off the card with an injury and replaced by Alexandre Ferreira.
