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 Fight Night: Albuquerque
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.
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
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.
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.
TUF Latin America Finale (tentatively UFC 180)
