With the addition of the welterweight scrap between Tim Means and Justin Salas, the 12-bout lineup for “UFC on FX: Johnson vs. McCall II” has been completed. The June 8th event takes place inside BankAtlantic Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Barring a visit from the pesky injury bug, the only uncertainty remaining for the show is which fights will appear on the main card. Fans still have an opportunity to vote for either Scott Jorgensen vs. Eddie Wineland, Carlos Eduardo Rocha vs. Mike Pierce or Lance Benoist vs. Seth Baczynski to appear in the FX telecast.

The UFC will then select one additional contest for the main card.

A flyweight semifinal tournament rematch between Demetrious Johnson and Ian McCall headlines the festivities. The 125-pounders will battle in a three-round affair, with the possibility of a sudden death stanza should the judges deem their bout a draw after 15 minutes.

FX broadcasts the event’s featured fights live beginning at 9PM ET/6PM PT. The UFC’s Facebook page is expected to offer a live stream on the night’s prelims, though a formal announcement has yet to be made.

Here is the show’s official roster:
