UFC 166 Fight Card Grows with Addition of Sotiropoulos vs. Noons and Gonzaga vs. Jordan

Posted on by MMAWeekly.com Staff

UFC LogoThe UFC 166 fight card slated for Oct. 19 in Houston continues to grow by the hour.

The latest additions are George Sotiropoulos vs. KJ Noons in the lightweight bout, and a heavyweight bout pitting Gabriel Gonzaga against Shawn Jordan.

The Age first reported the Sotiropoulos vs. Noons fight, while Gonzaga vs. Jordan was reported by The Advocate. UFC officials later confirmed both bouts.

Sotiropoulos (14-5) enters the fight with Noons in desperate need of a victory, having lost three consecutive bouts. Noons (11-7) also steps into this one looking for some rays of sunshine. Like Sotiropoulos, he has lost three straight, including his UFC debut in May.

Gonzaga (15-7) is in the midst of his second UFC tour, having won three of his four bouts since returning at UFC 142 in January of last year. Jordan (15-4) is also in the midst of a 3-1 run in the Octagon, including a victory over Pat Barry at UFC 161.

UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez puts his belt on the line against Juior dos Santos in the UFC 166 main event.
