Jimmo vs. Pokrajac, Maguire vs. Clarke added to UFC 161

Rafael Suanes-US PRESSWIRE

Four fighters in need of a win have been added to the June 15th card in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The UFC 161 card in Winnipeg on June 15th is quickly filling up, and there are two new additions - one in the light heavyweight division, the other at lightweight. Ryan Jimmo will face off with Igor Pokrajac (via Neil Davidson of the Canadian Press), while Mitch Clarke will meet British fighter John Maguire in Magiure's lightweight debut (also via Davidson).

Jimmo (17-2) is coming off his first loss in six years, having dropped a unanimous decision to James Te Huna at UFC on Fuel 7. Pokrajac (25-9) lost a unanimous decision to Joey Beltran in his last bout at UFC on FX 6, but the bout was flipped to a no contest due to a positive test for Beltran. He's 4-4 (1 NC) in nine UFC fights thus far.

Clarke (9-2) has dropped both of his UFC fights to date - a TKO loss to John Cholish at UFC 140, and a split decision loss to Anton Kuivanen at UFC 149. Maguire (18-5) will be making the drop to lightweight after two straight decision losses at welterweight. He's 2-2 in the UFC overall.

Both bouts are expected to take place on the preliminary card of the event, which is headlined by a UFC interim bantamweight title fight between Renan Barao and Eddie Wineland.
