Main Card (PPV):
Women's Bantamweight Championship: Ronda Rousey (c) vs Liz Carmouche - 1st round submission
Light Heavyweight Bout: Lyoto Machida vs Dan Henderson
Bantamweight Bout: Urijah Faber vs Ivan Menjivar
Welterweight Bout: Court McGee vs Josh Neer
Welterweight Bout: Josh Koscheck vs Robbie Lawler

... Just main events right? If not:

Preliminary Card:
Heavyweight Bout: Brendan Schaub vs Lavar "The Rock" Johnson
Lightweight Bout: Michael Chiesa vs Anton Kuivanen
Featherweight Bout: Dennis Bermudez vs Matt Grice
Lightweight Bout: Sam Stout vs Caros Fodor
Welterweight Bout: Kenny Robertson vs Brock Jardine
Welterweight Bout: Jon Marley vs Neil Magny
Welterweight Bout: Nah-Shon Burrell vs Yuri Villefort
This happens a lot when a main card fight gets cancelled. Often they don't want to disrupt the prelim main event so they dig a little deeper to find a fight. When Mendes v Gamburyan got dropped they made the switch.
