UFC On FOX 9, Fight Night 35, 36 Receive New Bouts

UFC officials went to work Tuesday, announcing several new bouts for the coming months.

First up, Alp Ozkilic will replace John Moraga at UFC on FOX 9 and meet Darren Uyenoyama. That card goes down December 14 from Sacramento with a main event pitting UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson against Joseph Benavidez.

Ozkilic (8-1) carries a three-fight win streak into his Octagon debut.

Two more fights have been added to the January 15 UFC Fight Night 35 card from Georgia, as Derek Brunson meets Yoel Romero and Vinc Pichel takes on Garett Whiteley.

Brunson (11-2) and Romero (6-1) are both 2-0 with the UFC and compete in the middleweight division. Pichel (7-1) and Whiteley (7-1) lost their Octagon debuts.

And finally, at UFC Fight Night 36, Viscardi Andrade will meet Nicholas Musoke.

The card goes down February 15 from Brazil. Both Andrade (17-5) and Musoke (11-2) were victorious in their respective UFC debuts.
