Two new fights have been added as well as three others previously reported for the UFC on Fuel 3 card coming up on May 15 in Virginia.

First up, in a lightweight bout former WEC lightweight Kamal Shalorus will look to stop his recent two fight losing streak when he meets Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Rafael Dos Anjos.

Dos Anjos recently lost a split decision to fellow Brazilian Gleison Tibau and he’ll also look to avoid tacking another loss to his record when he meets Shalorus in May.

Also added to the card is a bantamweight match-up between 7-1 prospect Azamot Gashimov who faces Alex Soto on the UFC on Fuel 3 card. Soto made his debut on short notice at UFC 139, but lost by knockout to current top ten bantamweight Michael McDonald.

The UFC also confirmed three previously reported fights on MMAWeekly.com.

Jeremy Stephens will step in for an injured Yves Edwards to face Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone, Jeff Curran meets Johnny Eduardo, and Carlo Prater faces off with T.J. Grant.
