Ufc LogoTwo more bouts have been added to the nearly complete UFC fight Night 28 (formerly UFC on Fox Sports 1 #3) fight card.

Welterweights Kenny Robertson will face Joao Zeferino while lightweight Francisco Trinaldo takes on UFC newcomer Piotr Hallmann on the Sept. 4 event.

Robertson (12-3 MMA, 1-3 UFC) lost his first two UFC bouts to Mike Pierce and Aaron Simpson before logging his lone UFC victory against Brock Jardine at UFC 157.  He is coming off a loss in his last outing to Sean Pierson and is in desperate need of a win.

Zeferino (13-5 MMA, 0-1 UFC) will try to get his first UFC win when he faces Robertson.  He made his promotional debut on May 18, losing a unanimous decision to Rafael Natal.

Trinaldo (13-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) is on a two-fight winning streak with victories over C.J. Keith and Mike Rio.  He also holds a UFC win over Delson Heleno.

Hallman (13-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) will make his UFC debut against Trinaldo.  He is riding an impressive nine-fight winning streak and hopes to extend it inside the Octagon.

UFC Fight Night 28 takes place Sept. 4 at the Mineirinho Arena in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and is headlined by a light heavyweight match-up between Glover Teixeira and Ryan Bader.
