Gegard Mousasi vs. Costas Philippou among two bouts added to UFC: Manila

"Breakfast with UFC", as Dana White referred to the upcoming show in Manila, will be the first time Fox Sports 1 hosts a live UFC show in the morning. The May 16 card will be headlined by Frankie Edgar vs. Urijah Faber, and as officials announced today, two more main card bouts have been added to the line up.

Co-headlining the card is a middleweight clash between Gegard Mousasi and Constantinos Philippou who are ranked at #7 and #12 respectively. Philippou is coming off a KO of Lorenz Larkin that snapped a two-fight losing skid, while Mousasi is fresh off a 1-minute TKO of Dan Henderson last January.

Also added to the Philippine event is a promising bout Korean knock out artist Hyun Gyu Lim, and fellow slugger Neil Magny.

The former PXC champion in Lim is 4-1 in the UFC, with his only loss coming against Tarec Saffiedine over a year ago. Magny, on the other hand, is coming of 6 straight victories at middleweight after tying the UFC record in 2014 for most wins in a calendar year.
