The UFC’s incredible stretch of four events in a matter of a week continues this Wednesday night with UFC Fight Night 71.

Set for the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, the card features a main event between former heavyweight champion Frank Mir and Todd Duffee.

The FOX Sports 1 main card begins at 10 p.m. ET and also includes Josh Thomson vs. Tony Ferguson, Holly Holm vs. Marion Reneau, Scott Jorgensen vs. Manny Gamburyan, Kevin Lee vs. James Moontasri and Alan Jouban vs. Matt Dwyer.

Gilbert Melendez was expected to face Al Iaquinta in the co-main event, but the former Strikeforce champion and two-time UFC contender was suspended for a year after failing his post-fight drug test.

Four prelims will air on FS1 beginning at 8 p.m. ET after UFC Fight Pass kicks things off at 7 p.m. ET with a pair of bouts.
