UFC Puts Together A Slew Of Fights For The Coming Months

UFC matchmaker Joe Silva has been a very busy man. Now, if the fighters can remain healthy, Silva might actually be able to take some time off.

Through several MMA sites, and Twitter, here are the fights announced on Tuesday.

The site MMA Weekly reported that Kyle Noke will move down to welterweight to take on Charlie Brenneman at UFC 151: Jones vs. Henderson. The card takes place September 1 from Las Vegas.

Noke (19-6-1) has lost his last two fights, while Brenneman (15-4) is 1-2 in his previous three.

The site also confirmed that the planned Rob Broughton-Matt Mitrione heavyweight contest originally set for this coming Saturday night will take place October 5 at UFC on FX 5.

Broughton (15-7-1) was forced out due to a family issue, while Mitrione (5-1) decided to remain on the sidelines.

Rick Story took to his Twitter page to announce his next fight. Story (14-5) will take on Demian Maia at UFC 153 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on October 13.

Maia (16-4) made a successful debut at welterweight recently by besting Dong Hyun Kim.

And finally, MMA Fighting has confirmed that middleweights Francis Carmont and Tom Lawlor will square off at UFC 154.

Carmont (19-7) has won all three of his UFC fights, while Lawlor (8-4) is 4-3 inside the Octagon. UFC 154 goes down in November from Montreal.
