The original UFC Fight Night 60 main event featured former Strikeforce welterweight champion Tarec Saffiedine vs. Matt Brown. That bout was scrapped after Saffiedine had to withdraw and UFC officials pulled Brown to fight Johny Hendricks in Dallas.

Thatch, who has scored all 11 of his victories in the first round, is on his home turf, having grown up right next door to Broomfield in Denver. Henderson was born about an hour or so South of Denver in Colorado Springs, but currently resides in Phoenix.

Three fighters failed to make weight during the official weigh-in.  James Moontasri missed weight for his lightweight match against Cody Pfister.  He has two hours to cut from 158 to 156 pounds.  Chris Kelades missed his weigh-in mark by one pound.  He has two hours to cut from 127 to 126 pounds for his flyweight fight against Ray Borg.  Patrick Walsh tipped the scales at 191.5-pounds for his middleweight bout against Daniel Kelly.

Nik Lentz and Levan Makashvili were scheduled to face off in a featherweight bout, but the fight was cancelled by doctors due to Lentz suffering from flulike symptoms.
