UFC Fight Night 88 will be held on May 29, 2016 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Carlos Diego Ferreira was expected to face Abel Trujillo, but was pulled from the event on May 13 due to a potential USADA anti-doping violation stemming from a recent out-of-competition sample collection. In accordance with the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, Ferreira has received a provisional suspension.

Rinaldi (12-4 mma) is currently riding an impressive five fight winning streak. Most recently, Rinaldi earned a second round submission win over Lashawn Alcocks at Fight Lab 52 in December.
