Now that the UFC has taken care of the main event for their May 15th Fuel card and by booking Dustin Poirier vs. Chan Sung Jung, they're getting around to booking the rest of the card. They recently announced the addition of three bouts on their website:
Verbal agreements are in for a trio of bouts at the UFC event May 15 in Fairfax that feature TUF fan favorites coming in off the injured list.
TUF 7 winner Amir Sadollah will meet 11-2 Wanderlei Silva protege Jorge Lopez in a welterweight war. The matchup was originally slated to take place last weekend at UFC 143, but both fighters were injured during their training camps.
Fans in Fairfax will also witness a middleweight matchup between 10-2 Dongi ‘The Ox’ Yang and 7-1 Brad Tavares.
All six of the fighters are coming off losses in their last bouts. Riley is also coming off a broken jaw that was suffered in his bout with Tony Ferguson at UFC 135. All three are expected to take place on the preliminary card, though the Sadollah fight could be placed on the main card, depending on what else gets booked. Here's how the card looks right now:
Dustin Poirier vs. Chan Sung Jung
Igor Pokrajac vs. Thiago Silva
Donald Cerrone vs. Yves Edwards
Tom Lawlor vs. Jason MacDonald
Jorge Lopez vs. Amir Sadollah
Cody McKenzie vs. Aaron Riley
Brad Tavares vs. Dongi Yang
