With the addition of the featherweight affair between Dennis Bermudez and Pablo Garza, the 12-bout roster for “UFC on FOX: Diaz vs. Miller” has been completed. The Octagon’s third primetime show takes place May 5th inside IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Bermudez was submitted by Diego Brandao in the finals of “The Ultimate Fighter 14″ this past December. He has lost his last three professional bouts, so it’s possible Bermudez will be fighting for his Octagon life.

Speaking of tapout losses, Garza was last seen crying uncle to Dustin Poirier at “UFC on FOX 1.” He had won his two prior big league contests before the November defeat.

A five-round affair between Nate Diaz and Jim Miller headlines the festivities. A welterweight shootout with Josh Koscheck and Johny Hendricks will serve as the co-main event.

UFC president Dana White previously claimed the company’s third foray on FOX may offer four live fights. The event’s top two scraps are solidified, but the bout order for the rest of the lineup is still up for grabs.

Here are the athletes slated to appear in the show:

Louis Gaudinot vs. John Lineker

Dennis Bermudez vs. Pablo Garza

Nick Denis vs. Johnny Bedford

Mike Massenzio vs. Karlos Vemola

Danny Castillo vs. John Cholish

John Dodson vs. Darren Uyenoyama

John Hathaway vs. Pascal Krauss

Tony Ferguson vs. Dennis Hallman

Pat Barry vs. Lavar Johnson

Alan Belcher vs Rousimar Palhares

Josh Koscheck vs. Johny Hendricks

Nate Diaz vs. Jim Miller
