The UFC 164 card expected to be headlined by the lightweight title fight between Ben Henderson and T.J. Grant had two more fights added to its line up. Wrestling-based fighters Yoel Romero and Derek Brunson will collide, along with fellow middleweights Jared Hamman and Magnus Cedenblad also recently being slated for the card. The UFC made the two bouts official, with both expected to be on the preliminary portion of the event.
Romero is a decorated Olympic wrestler who made waves during his UFC debut last April, winning KO of the Night for stopping Clifford Starks with a flying knee. His opponent in Brunson was also successful on his debut for the promotion, when he won a decision over Chris Leben at UFC 155.
UFC 164 will feature a relatively stacked line up with fighters such as Josh Barnett, Frank Mir, Chad Mendes, Clay Guida, Erik Koch and Brandon Vera supplementing the main card. Check out the complete line up for the card so far:
