UFC Fight Night 183: James Krause vs. Shane Campbell full fight,The event will be the second that the promotion has hosted in Pittsburgh, and first since UFC Live: Kongo vs. Barry in June of 2011. It was originally expected to be headlined by a welterweight bout between former UFC Lightweight Championship challenger Donald Cerrone and Tim Means. On February 3, it was announced that Means was informed of a potential USADA anti-doping policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection. Because there was insufficient time for a full review and proper promotion before the scheduled bout, Means was pulled from the fight by the UFC. The following day, Alex Oliveira was announced as his replacement.

Sarah Moras was expected to face Lauren Murphy at the event. However, Moras pulled out of the bout on February 12 citing injury. She was replaced by promotional newcomer Kelly Faszholz.
