UFC Fight Night 62 will be held on March 21, 2015 at the Ginásio do Maracanãzinho in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
After hosting a PPV event at the venue and some others at HSBC Arena, the event will be the first Fight Night that the UFC has hosted in Rio de Janeiro.
The event was expected to be headlined by a bantamweight rematch between Urijah Faber and Raphael Assunção. However Assunção was forced out of the bout with an ankle injury. The UFC removed Faber from the card and promoted a welterweight bout between Demian Maia and Ryan LaFlare to the main event.
Ben Saunders was expected to face Erick Silva at the event. However Saunders pulled out of the bout due to an injury. He was replaced by Josh Koscheck. Koscheck had previously fought just 21 days before this event at UFC 184, losing his fight against Jake Ellenberger.
