Iaquinta (11-3-1) has finished his last three opponents and cracked the top 15 fighter rankings. He last competed at UFC 183 on Jan. 31, defeating Joe Lauzon by technical knockout.
Masvidal (28-8) is riding a three-fight winning streak. He was originally scheduled to face Bobby Green, but an injury forced Green out of the fight. He was then lined up against former lightweight champion Benson Henderson, but Henderson was removed from the match-up to face Brandon Thatch at UFC Fight Night 60. Henderson is going up a weight class to fight Thatch.
