One guy will be looking to rebound from a highly-disputed decision loss at UFC 144 in February. The other will be looking to get back on track after picking up his first UFC loss last month. MMA Weekly has the news on a new UFC 151 fight on September 1st:

A pair of bantamweights have been matched up and added to UFC 151 in September as Takeya Mizugaki faces off with Jeff Hougland.

Sources close to the match-up confirmed the fight with MMA Weekly on Sunday.

Mizugaki (15-7-2) was a longtime WEC fighter that made the move over to the UFC in the merger. He's gone 2-2 in the organization this far, though he should probably be 3-1. As mentioned above he lost a split decision to Chris Cariaso at UFC 144 in his last bout. Hougland (10-5) made his UFC debut last year with a decision win over Donny Walker, but dropped a decision to Yves Jabouin at UFC on Fuel 3 one month ago.

The bout is expected to take place on the preliminary card. The main event of the show will see UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones defend his belt against former Pride and Strikeforce champion Dan Henderson.
