The UFC’s official confirmation of Jon Jones vs. Rashad Evans as the headliner for UFC 145 rounds out a slate of 11 bouts for the April 21 fight card at Philips Arena in Atlanta.

UFC officials confirmed the 11-bout UFC 145 fight card to MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday.

The Jones vs. Evans bout is the culmination of more than a year of animosity between the two former teammates, as well as Evans’ three-year trek to get another crack at the UFC light heavyweight title.

The UFC 145 main card on pay-per-view is bolstered by a welterweight bout between two of the divisions fast-rising stars, Rory MacDonald and Che Mills, as well as a heavyweight showdown between Brendan Schaub and Ben Rothwell.

Initially planned for Montreal, the UFC 145 card also features Canadian Mark Hominick returning to the Octagon to face Eddie Yagin in a featherweight contest, along with Hominick’s countryman Mark Bocek in a lightweight battle against Matt Wiman.

Main Card (on Pay-Per-View):
-Jon Jones (15-1) vs. Rashad Evans (17-1-1)
-Rory MacDonald (12-1) vs. Che Mills (14-4)
-Brendan Schaub (8-2) vs. Ben Rothwell (31-8)
-Mark Hominick (20-10) vs. Eddie Yagin (15-5-1)
-Matt Wiman (14-6) vs. Mark Bocek (10-4)

Preliminary Bouts:
-Michael McDonald (14-1) vs. Miguel Torres (40-4)
-Chad Griggs (11-1) vs. Travis Browne (12-0-1)
-Anthony Njokuani (14-6) vs. John Makdessi (9-1)
-Efrain Escudero (18-4) vs. Mac Danzig (20-9-1)
-Chris Clements (10-4) vs. Keith Wisniewski (28-13-1)
-Maximo Blanco (8-3-1) vs. Marcus Brimage (4-1)
