One day before kicking off their hectic weekend, where the Octagon will be hosting back-to-back shows for the first time in company history, the world’s premier mixed martial arts promotion found the time to announce a trio of scraps for the “UFC 151: Jones vs. Henderson” lineup.

Danny Castillo (Pictured) vs. Michael Johnson, Dennis Siver vs. Eddie Yagin and Takeya Mizugaki vs. Jeff Hougland were all confirmed for the September 1st extravaganza.

It’s likely the three fights will take place in the card’s prelims. However, only four bouts have been confirmed for the event thus far so we’ll see how the rest of the roster rounds out as game time approaches.

Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada is expected to host the bash. Light heavyweight king Jon Jones defends his throne against Dan Henderson in the night’s featured attraction.

Here are the athletes slated to appear in the festivities:

Takeya Mizugaki vs. Jeff Hougland

Dennis Siver vs. Eddie Yagin

Danny Castillo vs. Michael Johnson

Dan Henderson vs. Jon Jones (UFC light heavyweight champion)
