Marquardt snapped a three-fight skid with a submission victory over James Te Huna in the main event of UFC Fight Night 43 this past June.

Tavares has lost two straight fights, including a second-round KO loss to Tim Boetsch at UFC Fight Night 47 this past August.

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones faces Daniel Cormier in the main event.
