ufc 178

Two new welterweight fights have been added to UFC 178, as John Howard meets Brian Ebersole and Patrick Cote takes on Stephen Thompson.

Set for September 27 from Las Vegas, the card features a rematch between UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson. Former bantamweight titleholder Dominick Cruz and No. 1 female contender Cat Zingano will also return that night.

Howard (22-9) had his four-fight win streak snapped by Ryan LaFlare this past April, suffering a decision loss. Ebersole (50-16-1) is on a two-fight losing skid, having dropped back-to-back decisions to Rick Story and James Head after compiling 11 straight victories.

Cote (20-8) is a former No. 1 contender who returned to the UFC in 2012 and lost to Cung Le. Since, he has won each of his last three. Thompson (9-1) has earned three straight wins since a decision loss to Matt Brown in 2012.

Below is the current list of fights:
