On Thursday afternoon, a trio of scraps were added to the Octagon’s final primetime show of 2012. “UFC on FOX: Henderson vs. Diaz” takes place December 8th inside Key Arena in Seattle, Washington.
A featherweight affair between Dennis Siver (Pictured) and Eddie Yagin, which was originally slotted for Saturday’s now-canceled UFC 151 event, was confirmed to the roster.
In addition, “The Ultimate Fighter 15” winner Michael Chiesa breaks in his six-figure UFC contract against Brazilian jiu jitsu specialist Rafaello Oliveira and John Albert will face veteran Scott Jorgensen in a bantamweight battle.
All three contests will appear in the night’s prelims.
In all, 11 bouts have now been announced for the lineup. The final tango to appear in FOX’s four-fight main card is the last piece to the puzzle.
The FOX broadcast begins live at 8PM ET/5PM PT.
