Story looks to break out of a recent slump at the event after losing three of his last four fights. Prior to the downturn, he was 6-1 in the UFC and poised to make a run at the welterweight belt after defeating Thiago Alves at UFC 130.
Meanwhile, Pierson earned victories in his last two contests, pushing his UFC record to 3-2. The two losses came against contenders Dong Hyun Kim and Jake Ellenberger at UFC 141 and UFC 129, respectively.
