As the Ultimate Fighting Championship speeds towards the biggest televised event in its history, UFC on Fox 1, the fight card is slowly, but surely filling up.

The latest addition is a light heavyweight bout between Aaron Rosa and Matt Lucas, according MMAWeekly.com sources.

Rosa (16-4) was expected to fight Fabricio Maldonado at the recent UFC on Versus 6 fight card, but that bout fell through when Maldonado suffered an injury. Rosa last saw action at UFC 131 in Vancouver, where he lost in his Octagon debut to Joey Beltran.

He faces Lucas (14-2), who is a Rage in the Cage veteran in Arizona, fighting for that promotion almost exclusively for the majority of his career thus far. He enters the fight with Rosa on the heels of a five-fight winning streak.

UFC on Fox 1 is headlined by a heavyweight title bout, pitting champion Cain Velasquez against challenger Junior dos Santos. The main event is the only bout slated for the one-hour telecast on Fox. Broadcast plans for the undercard have yet to be announced.

    Haha. I remember seeing this guy fight in Strikeforce a few years ago, and when I saw him fight Joey Beltran in the UFC, I was like: “DAAAAMN, THAT GUY GOT FAT!”

    Haha.
