UFC fight bookings roundup – 8/12 – 8/19

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

Eric Bolte-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: Macau

With just a few days to go until the UFC's return to Macau, China, the injured welterweight Sheldon Westcott has been replaced by Shinsho Anzai, who will now compete against Alberto Mina on the Saturday morning fight card.

UFC Fight Night: Tulsa

The other UFC event taking place on Saturday also required a couple of late changes, as Mirsad Bektic was forced to withdraw from his scheduled featherweight fight against Max Holloway and will be replaced by the debuting Clay Collard. Flyweight Tim Elliot was also removed from the fight card and will be replaced by Joby Sanchez to fight Wilson Reis.

UFC 177

A pair of newcomers, Cain Carrizosa and Chris Wade will make their promotional debuts against each other on the UFC 177 fight card on Aug. 30.

UFC Fight Night: Halifax

Six new fights have been added to the UFC's debut event in Halifax, Nova Scotia. They are: Elias Theodorou vs. Bruno Santos, Chad Laprise vs. Yosdenis Cedeno, Mitch Gagnon vs. Aljamain Sterling, Matt Dwyer vs. Albert Tumenov, Paul Felder vs. Jason Saggo and Olivier Aubin-Mercier vs. Jake Lindsey.

UFC Fight Night: Stockholm

UFC officials revealed that the line-up of the UFC Fight Night event in Stockholm, Sweden is now complete with the addition of two more early prelims - Ernest Chavez vs. Zubaira Tukhugov and Marcin Bandel vs. Mairbek Taisumov.
