Officials have organized the fight card for UFC 183, with welterweights Jordan Mein and Thiago Alves kicking off the pay-per-view main card.

Set for January 31 from Las Vegas, the night will feature the return of both Anderson Silva and Nick Diaz in the main event. Silva, a former UFC middleweight champion, is coming back from a broken leg, while Diaz has been on the sidelines following a self-imposed retirement.

Other main card bouts include Tyron Woodley-Kelvin Gastelum, Joe Lauzon-Al Iaquinta and Thales Leites-Tim Boetsch.

The FOX Sports 1 prelims will feature former female bantamweight title contenders Miesha Tate and Sara McMann squaring off, along with a pair of previously cancelled bouts between Ed Herman and Derek Brunson and Ian McCall and John Lineker.
