The dos Santos-Carwin battle in the UFC 131 is for the Heavyweight bout with four other fights in the Main Card events. American fighter Kenny Florian will take on Diego Nunes in the Featherweight fight, Jon Olav Einemo fights Dave Herman in another Heavyweight battle, a Middleweight bout will have Demian Maia taking on Mark Muñoz while Vagner Rocha will replace Mac Danzig in his Lightweight fight against Donald Cerrone.
