A welterweight showdown with bombs expected was announced this week, as the UFC made Dan Hardy vs. Chris Lytle official as the headliner for the UFC on Versus 5 fight card on Aug. 14 in Milwaukee, Wisc.

The promotion has now added eight bouts in total to the roster at the Bradley Center.

Also featured is a bout between two of the UFC’s top lightweights. Anthony Pettis and Clay Guida will try to narrow down the field of 155-pound contenders at the TUF 13 Finale on Saturday night, but Jim Miller and former WEC champion Ben Henderson will take it another step when they square off at UFC on Versus 5.

Duane Ludwig had to pull out of his bout with Amir Sadollah at UFC Fight Night 24 due to an injury to his sternum. He’s now back and ready to roll, so the two will try it again in Milwaukee.

-Dan Hardy (23-9) vs. Chris Lytle (30-18-5)
