Toner went 1-1 with the WEC and will look to rebound from his last time out, a WEC 51 loss in September, where he dropped a unanimous decision to Diego Nunes, as well what would be a better way to kick start his UFC career.

Loveland, is a former IFL veteran and has racked up six straight wins since October 2007 including a fifth-round head kick knockout of former UFC fighter, Douglas Evans in Alaska.
