UFC on Fox 1 Fight Card Filling Fast with Three Additions on Tuesday

Posted on by MMAWeekly.com Staff

The first UFC on Fox fight card is quickly gaining steam with three more bouts announced on Tuesday.

The UFC confirmed an initial report by MMAWeekly.com that Aaron Rosa and Matt Lucas had agreed to a light heavyweight bout on the Nov. 12 card in Anaheim, Calif., but also added two more bouts to the mix.

Mackens Semerzier and Robert Peralta will meet in a featherweight scrap, as well as middleweights Paul Bradley and Mike Pierce squaring off in a middleweight bout.

Semerzier (6-3) is coming off of a win over Alex Caceres at UFC Fight Night 24 in his Octagon debut, while Peralta (15-3), in his first UFC bout, stepped up on short notice at UFC Fight Night 25 to defeat Mike Lullo.

Bradley and Pierce are both known for their strong wrestling ability. Bradley (18-3), in his Octagon debut at UFC 133, had a five-fight winning streak derailed by Rafael Natal. Pierce (12-4) most recently fought and lost on the same card as Bradley, dropping a split decision to Johny Hendricks.

UFC on Fox 1 features a UFC heavyweight championship bout between Cain Velasquez and challenger Junior dos Santos as the only fight of a one-hour telecast on Fox. Broadcast plans for the undercard are expected shortly.
