Shortly after announcing Mike Swick would be ending his two-and-a-half year injury-riddled hiatus at “UFC on FOX: Stann vs. Lombard,” the world’s most prestigious mixed martial arts promotion reported a trio of featherweight fights to the August 4th lineup. Eleven scraps have been confirmed for the event thus far.
Former WEC top contender Manny Gamburyan (Pictured) will meet Michihiro Omigawa, Nam Phan faces Cole Miller and Josh Grispi jousts with Pablo Garza in the Octagon’s fourth primetime show.
All three bouts are expected to appear in the preliminary card.
The UFC is still looking to secure a venue to host the bash, but the show is expected to take place in Los Angeles, California. Staples Center is the frontrunner to host the festivities.
FOX will broadcast the featured fights live at 8PM ET/5PM PT. A critical middleweight contest between Octagon rookie Hector Lombard and Brian Stann will headline the freebie fight card.
