With less than a month remaining until the curtain is drawn on “UFC 156: Aldo vs. Edgar,” an 11th fight has been added to the February 2nd lineup.

On Tuesday, it was announced bantamweight Chico Camus will welcome undefeated Dustin Kimura to the big leagues.

Camus collected his fourth straight victory by posting a decision win over Dustin Pague at UFC 150. The tango marked Camus’ Octagon premiere.

Kimura is perfect through his first nine professional outings. Hard to believe, but KIMURA is a submission specialist with six of his wins coming by way of tap out.

The 135-pound affair will likely kick off the night’s festivities. It is unknown whether this scrap completes the roster or if the promotion will look to add a 12th bout.

Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts the festivities.

Here is the show’s current lineup:

Preliminary Card:

Chico Camus vs. Dustin Kimura

Edwin Figueroa vs. Francisco Rivera

Jacob Volkmann vs. Bobby Green

Joseph Benavidez vs. Ian McCall

Yves Edwards vs. Isaac Vallie-Flagg

Tyron Woodley vs. Jay Hieron

Main Card:

(Pay-Per-View 10PM ET/7PM PT)

Evan Dunham vs. Gleison Tibau

Jon Fitch vs. Demian Maia

Rashad Evans vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira

Alistair Overeem vs. Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva
