The evening’s main draw airs on MTV2 and will also see former two-time middleweight tournament veteran Brian Rogers (185) lock horns with promotional newcomer Dominique Steele (184.5). Rounding out the televised card will be a featherweight confrontation pitting Season 6 tournament winner Daniel Straus (145.5) against UFC veteran Alvin Robinson (145).
