Orlando Adds Three More Matchups

An action-packed card in Orlando gets even bigger...
The stacked UFC on FOX event in Orlando on April 19 just got even more firepower in the form of three stellar verbally agreed to matchups.

In the FOX UFC Saturday main card opener, streaking middleweights Yoel Romero and Brad Tavares collide. Romero is coming off a Fight of the Night win over Derek Brunson in January, his third consecutive win. On the same card, Tavares made it five straight, defeating Lorenz Larkin.

Also added to the event is a clash of former Strikeforce lightweight standouts, as Jorge Masvidal meets Pat Healy. And in another intriguing lightweight clash, Khabib Nurmagomedov puts his unbeaten record on the line against Brazilian contender Rafael Dos Anjos. Originally scheduled to face Rustam Khabilov at UFC 170, Dos Anjos will now move to the April event after Khabilov was forced off the February card due to injury.
