Inaugural UFC on Fox Adds Three More Bouts

(Awwwww yeah.)

When the UFC decided to add a couple more fights to their first card on Fox, we figured it was the inevitable result of our time tested, sound advice. And now, Sherdog has confirmed that they are in fact adding three additional bouts to the card, so I’d say our theory is pretty much a lock at this point.

Though the fights may not be composed of big names like “Dos Santos” and “Velasquez,” there are still some pretty interesting match-ups with the definite potential for fireworks, the first of which is a featherweight contest between Virginian powerhouse Mackens Semerzier and Robert Peralta. Semerzier most recently broke a 3 fight skid with a first round submission victory over Alex “Bruce Leroy” Caceres back at UFC Fight Night 24. Peralta is coming off a successful UFC debut at UFN 25 where he scored a unanimous decision victory over Mike Lullo.

Mike Pierce has compiled a respective 4-2 record in his octagon run, scoring notable victories over Brock Larson and Amilcar Alves, though is coming off a close split decision loss to welterweight contender Johny Hendricks. This fight will be held at lightweight however, against Paul “The Gentleman” Bradley, who dropped a unanimous decision of his own to Rafael Natal in his UFC debut at UFC 133. These two have actually fought before, with Pierce coming away the victor via unanimous decision.

And finally, Matt Lucas will be making his octagon debut against tough veteran Aaron Rosa in a light heavyweight tilt. Rosa is perhaps best known for his gritty back and forth brawl with Joey “The Mexicutioner” Beltran back at UFC 131, which he eventually lost by TKO in the third round. Rosa will be making the drop to 205 lbs. for this fight, and will face a tough test in UFC newcomer Lucas, who is riding a five fight win streak including 4 (T)KO finishes within the first two minutes.

With the addition of these three fights, it’s safe to say the UFC on Fox card is shaping up to be as epic as the deal itself. Not only does it feature the heavyweight championship fight between Dos Santos and Velasquez, but the extensive preliminary card features a lightweight battle of top contenders when former WEC lightweight champ Ben Henderson takes on Clay Guida. Norifumi ”Kid” Yamamoto also returns to action against Darren Uyenoyama, and featherweight highlight reel Pablo Garza takes on Dustin Poirier.

So this is NOT as "epic" as the Fox deal, it's actually the *worst* UFC card in memory, at least as judged by the litmus test "who the fuck ARE these dudes". So please start making sense, Danga.

I was definitely wrong in assuming Hendo/Guida was not a prelim... very sad to hear that a lightweight title eliminator is not even planned to be televised. Obviously DFW plans to air it after JDS knocks out Cain in round two, but that fight shouldn't be anyone's Plan B.

I hope you guys aren't really this naive. No one "took your advice". The UFC on Fox event card was ALWAYS going to have a full roster of fights. It's just that the plan is for only the main event to air on Fox, with the possibility of running some of the more exciting earlier fights afterwards if time allows.

So yes, there is only one "Main Card" fight, and the rest are as of yet considered prelims.

@ everyone

Both Sherdog and Wikipedia have all the fights with the exception of the main event listed as part of the preliminary card
Mofo- October 5, 2011 at 11:20 am
Actually Danga you listed Ben and Guida as "the extensive preliminary card". They aren't on the prelims! They're main event.

And you left out the fact that these three bozo fights clearly ARE prelims.

Please fix all of these things. "Just for me".

Are we sure the three fights listed are on the main card? It looks like someone swapped the main card fighters and the preliminary card fighters is all. Not sure if that was Danga or the UFC but someone needs to do something about their dyslexia.

@Danga - Sorry I didnt realize you wrote this article. Now that I have, fuck you.
Mofo- October 5, 2011 at 10:58 am
@Danga - dude, what kind of statement is this?

"With the addition of these three fights, it’s safe to say the UFC on Fox card is shaping up to be as epic as the deal itself."

What gives CP its flavor is the kind of disrespectful sass that Ben F is still using at MMAFighting. Not blind worship.

These three fights are nobodies; what's with the hyperbole? If they're actually great fighters that aren't well known, fine, present them that way... but what are you, Goldberg? Miletich?

Just had to point that out, but thanks for being a contributor and keep up the good work.

What what and WHO? Clearly these bouts are for the live crowd and won't be on TV.

UFC wouldn't use these fellas (great fighters tho they may or may not be) as their Fox introduction.

Guida/Henderson is the kind of shit they need more of.

@Fried Taco-I am still wondering the same thing. FX doesn't get the rights until January correct?
I would like to think the UFC would not put Guida V Henderson on as a facebook fight.
Fried Taco- October 5, 2011 at 9:46 am
Yes, rngeorgeh, you are First! Thank you for your contribution.
Fried Taco- October 5, 2011 at 9:44 am
What I want to know is where will these fights air? I'm hoping "Facebook" is not the answer.
