UFC fight bookings roundup: 4/29-5/4

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

The UFC has booked a bunch of fights over the last few days, and here's a rundown of what they put together.

With something like 50 events in 2014, the UFC has to book a whole lot of fights. Sometimes these fights are huge, and sometimes they're undercard bouts featuring names you might not know very well. So we're going to continue with a new weekly (or bi-weekly if needed) series of articles where we take a brief look at each and every bout booked by the promotion in one place. Without further ado, here we go.

UFC 173

Aaron Phillips has been signed as a late replacement to meet Sam Sicilia. In addition to that, David Michaud was signed as well to fight Li Jingliang.

UFC Fight Night: Albuquerque

Jason High is dropping to lightweight and will face off with Rafael dos Anjos on the June 7th show.

UFC 174

Two bouts were added to the show. The first is a light heavyweight fight featuring Canada's favorite athlete, Ryan Jimmo, taking on Ovince St. Preux. Also added to the show is a women's bantamweight bout between Germaine de Randamie and the debuting Milana Dudieva.

UFC Fight Night: San Antonio

Joe Ellenberger was expected to make his UFC debut at UFC 172, but a series of injuries and moves left him without an opponent. He now has a new tentative date to fight though, as he's scheduled to meet Frank Trevino on June 28th (via UFC News on Twitter):

TUF 19 Finale

Kevin Lee will meet Jesse Ronson at the event:

UFC Fight Night: Atlantic City

We know about the headliner between Donald Cerrone and Jim Miller. There were two other fights announced over the weekend as well - a flyweight bout between Alptekin Ozkilic and John Lineker, and a welterweight bout between Rick Story and John Howard.

UFC Fight Night: Dublin

As noted earlier in the week, a bout between rising welterweights Ryan LaFlare and Gunnar Nelson will take place at the July 19th show. The show's rumored main event bout between Conor McGregor and Cole Miller was also made official.

UFC Fight Night: Japan

The promotion is targeting a heavyweight bout between Mark Hunt and Roy Nelson for the September event. This isn't official yet.

TUF Latin America Finale (tentatively UFC 180)

After UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum get through with coaching the first season of TUF Latin America, they will meet with the belt on the line on November 15th.
