UFC Yves Edwards

A pair of lightweight scraps have been announced to the UFC on FOX 8 roster.

Yves Edwards (pictured) vs. Spencer Fisher and Michael Chiesa vs. Reza Madadi were recently added to the July 27 event.

Edwards looks to bounce back from February’s split decision defeat to Isaac Vallie-Flagg. “Thugjitsu Master” has alternated between wins and losses over his past five outings.

Fisher will likely be fighting for his UFC life. “The King” has dropped three straight fights, with his most recent coming to Sam Stout in June.

Chiesa puts his perfect 9-0 record on the line in front of his hometown crowd. “The Ultimate Fighter 15” winner just submitted Anton Kuivanen at UFC 157.

Madadi has won eight of his last nine bouts. “Mad Dog” beat Michael Johnson in April.

Both 155-pound affairs will likely appear in the card’s prelims.

KeyArena in Seattle, Washington hosts the festivities.

FOX will broadcast the main card live beginning at 8PM ET/5PM PT.

Here is the show’s updated lineup:

Germaine de Randamie vs. Julie Kedzie

Yves Edwards vs. Spencer Fisher

Michael Chiesa vs. Reza Madadi

Danny Castillo vs. Bobby Green

Melvin Guillard vs. Mac Danzig

Tarec Saffiedine vs. Robbie Lawler

Jake Ellenberger vs. Rory MacDonald
