Three bouts have officially been added to the undercard of UFC on Fox: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos, bringing the total number of verified fights to eight. UFC officials confirmed the announcements mid-Tuesday afternoon.
Explosive 30-year-old featherweight Mackens Semerzier (8-3) has signed on to battle Robert Peralta (15-3-0), the man who replaced him after an injury forced an abrupt withdrawal from a September bout against Mike Lullo. Both men are Zuffa veterans, but fresh off their first UFC win -- a first round submission over Alex Caceres for Semerzier, and a unanimous decision over Lullo for Peralta.
Additionally, Paul "The Gentleman" Bradley (18-3) has agreed to fight Mike Pierce (12-4) in a duel of standout middleweight wrestlers. Bradley looks to rebound from a loss against Rafael Natal at UFC 133, while Pierce aims for his own rebound after dropping a narrow split decision to Johny Hendricks on the same night.
Lastly, Rage in the Cage knockout artist Matt Lucas (14-2) makes his Octagon debut against 28-year-old Texas native Aaron Rosa (16-4) in a potential light heavyweight slugfest. Lucas enters the cage riding high on a five-fight win streak that includes four under-two-minute knockout victories. Rosa, on the other hand, hopes to bounce back after crumbling to strikes in the third round of his UFC debut against Joey Beltran in June.
UFC on Fox: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos is slated for November 12th at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. Headlining is a massive heavyweight clash between UFC champion Cain Velasquez and number-one contender Junior dos Santos.
