It’s been less than two weeks since UFC on Versus 6 was revealed, but the fight card is filling up fast.

Headlined by a UFC bantamweight title bout, pitting champion Dominick Cruz against Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson, UFC on Versus 6 will now also feature a lightweight bout between Yves Edwards and Rafaello Oliveira.

The UFC announced the fight on its official Twitter account on Thursday night.

Edwards (40-17-1) is coming off the first loss in his thus far three-fight return to the Octagon. He won back-to-back fights before ending up on the wrong end of a knockout courtesy of Sam Stout at UFC 131 in Vancouver.

Oliveira (14-4) could very well be fighting for his spot on the roster. He was 1-2 in his first run in the UFC and lost his recent return bout at UFC 130 in May, getting choked out by Gleison Tibau.

UFC on Versus 6 takes place on Oct. 1 at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. It will air live on the Versus network.
