Brilz (17-2-1) won his first two UFC fights over Brad Morris and Tim Boetsch to push his unbeaten streak to 13, but suffered a split decision to Eliot Marshall in September.
UFC on Versus 1 is headlined by Bradon Vera vs. Jon Jones and also features Junior dos Santos vs. Gabriel Gonzaga, Cheick Kongo vs. Paul Buentello, and Anthony Johnson vs. John Howard.
