Four longtime veterans with shoot it out in "The Sooner State" in a fight to stay relevant.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is quickly filling up its upcoming UFC Fight Night 49: "Henderson vs. Dos Anjos" mixed martial arts (MMA) fight card, which takes place on Aug. 23, 2014 inside BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Doing work in the welterweight division are a pair of longtime veterans, as former middleweight number one contender Demian Maia tries to stay afloat against Mike "Quicksand" Pyle. Maia (19-6) outpointed Alexander Yakovlev earlier this year in Brazil, while Pyle (26-9-1) hammered TJ Waldburger at UFC 170.

That's not all.

In middleweight action, former 185-pound title contender Thales Leites (23-4) looks to extend his six-fight winning streak against the struggling Francis Carmont (22-9), who is coming off consecutive decision losses to Ronaldo Souza and CB Dollaway.

Who ya' got?

UFC Fight Night 49, headlined by a lightweight contender's fight pitting former division champion Ben Henderson against streaking Brazilian stalwart Raphael dos Anjos, airs on FOX Sports 1 with "Prelims" bouts streaming live on the promotion's new "Fight Pass" digital network.
