With less than two weeks to go until the UFC's first FX-televised event, there was still one more fight to be added, and it will feature two UFC newcomers in the featherweight division: Daniel Pineda and Pat Schilling. The UFC tweeted news of the match-up yesterday:

Nashville card changes: Mike Brown injured; Daniel Pineda vs. Pat Schilling and Mike Easton vs. Jared Papazian added

Schilling trains out of Ambition MMA in Minnesota under head coach Joey Clark, and has relied mainly on his ground game to go undefeated in his first five pro fights, with four of those wins coming via submission. Competing on the Minnesota and Canadian regional scene, Schilling''s competition hasn't exactly been too impressive, with his most recent win coming against an 0-7 fighter.

Pineda is a native of Houston, Texas and trains at the 4oz Fight Club. He'll have a significant experience advantage over Schilling, with 22 fights under his belt, and against tougher competition in larger organizations like Bellator and Legacy Fighting Championship. Pineda has only been to a decision once, although that's probably the result of his reckless style, as Pineda has 6 submission losses to go along with his 9 submission wins. Perhaps the most notable name on Pineda's record is current UFC bantamweight and TUF 14 cast-member, Johnny Bedford, as Pineda and Bedford split a pair of fights in 2009, with each man getting a submission win over the other.
