UFC fight bookings roundup – 8/5 – 8/12

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

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Since the UFC has decided to produce 50+ events in 2014, there is a remarkable amount of fighter signings and new match-ups being set up throughout any given week. Many of these new signings are for match-ups that take place on the undercard, or on the Fight Pass portion of a PPV, so we are 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.

UFC Fight Night: Halifax

A compelling bantamweight contest between Bryan Caraway and Raphael Assuncao is scheduled to take place on the main card of the UFC's first fight card in Halifax. Sherdog also reported that Nordine Taleb will drop down to welterweight to meet China's Jingliang Li on the fight card.

UFC Fight Night: Stockholm

Several new fights have been added to the UFC Fight Night card in Stockholm, Sweden; the first is a middleweight contest between Tor Troeng and Krzysztof Jotko, while the other is a welterweight tilt between Cathal Pendred and Gasan Umalatov.

Also, Alexander Yakovelv will replace Amir Sadollah against Nico Musoke on the October card. Sadollah was removed from that fight to replace Kyle Noke against Yoshihiro Akiyama.
