UFC On FOX 12, UFC Fight Night Receive New Bouts

Patrick Cummins

UFC officials have booked a pair of fights for upcoming events, as Patrick Cummins will face Kyle Kingsbury at UFC on FOX: Lawler vs. Brown and female bantamweights Jessamyn Duke and Leslie Smith collide at UFC Fight Night: Cowboy vs. Miller.

The Kingsbury-Cummins fight will take place July 26 from the SAP Center in San Jose. The headline fight that night will see Robbie Lawler and Matt Brown battle.

Kingsbury (11-5) is making his return to action for the first time since a 2012 loss to Jimi Manuwa. The alum of The Ultimate Fighter lost three straight prior to announcing his retirement.

Cummins (5-1) earned his initial UFC win recently when he finished Roger Narvaez. He took a fight with Daniel Cormier earlier this year, losing for the first time in his career.

Duke and Smith will join the July 16 event from Atlantic City that features Donald Cerrone and Jim Miller in the main event.

Duke (3-1) is coming off a loss to Bethe Correia in her second Octagon appearance. She defeated Peggy Morgan in her debut with the UFC after a stint on The Ultimate Fighter 18.

Smith (6-5-1) took a short notice fight against Sarah Kaufman this past April, losing via decision. She has competed in Invicta FC prior to signing with the promotion.
