Mega-Friday Fight Update


Seven new fights are now on the schedule for upcoming UFC events, with a mix of contenders, prospects and heavy hitters slated to hit the Octagon in the next couple months.

The UFC found some room for three more intriguing matchups on its stacked September 5 event in Las Vegas, as Paul Felder faces Ross Pearson in a lightweight bout, Joe Riggs moves back to middleweight to take on Ron Stallings, and featherweight action fighters Clay Collard and Andre Fili collide on the UFC 191 card at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

A trio of bouts is also on its way to Japan for the UFC Fight Night event on September 27 at Saitama Super Arena. Leading off will be the return of former world title challenger Kyoji Horiguchi, as he takes on Chico Camus in flyweight action. Also added were bouts between Shinsho Anzai and Roger Zapata, and between Katsunori Kikuno and Diego Brandao.

Finally, UFC 192 in Houston on October 3 will see "The Black Beast," Derrick Lewis, face off with Anthony Hamilton at Toyota Center.
