UFC 166 Fights: Gonzaga-Jordan, Noons-Sotiropoulos Added

A pair of bouts have been added to the October UFC 166 card from Houston.

The event takes place October 19 from inside the Toyota Center with a main event featuring UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez defending his title against Junior dos Santos.

Officials have set two more fights for the rapidly-filling card, pairing heavyweights Gabriel Gonzaga and Shawn Jordan together, along with lightweights KJ Noons and George Sotiropoulos.

Gonzaga (15-7) has posted a 10-6 mark with the UFC, including a finish of Dave Herman in just 17 seconds. Jordan (15-4) is 3-1 since leaving Strikeforce, which includes a 59-second finish of Pat Barry.

Noons (11-7) is an ex-EliteXC champion that was defeated by Donald Cerrone earlier this year. Sotiropoulos (14-5) has dropped his last three after starting his UFC career 7-0.
