UFC Heavyweight Matt Mitrione TUF

After watching their little brothers host a spectacular show on Saturday night, it was business as usual at the UFC’s corporate offices on Monday. The company has just announced Matt Mitrione and Christian Morecraft will meet at “UFC on Versus 4” on June 26th.

Mitrione owns a perfect 4-0 mixed martial arts record, with all of his fights taking place inside of the Octagon. “Meathead” has quickly become one of the sport’s more popular fighters, having made his claim to fame as a contestant on “The Ultimate Fighter 10.”

Morecraft, on the other hand, holds an impressive 7-1 professional mark. After getting put to sleep by Stefan Struve at UFC 117, he bounced back to submit Sean McCorkle last month at “UFC Fight Night 24” to collect his first big league victory.

A lightweight affair between Joe Lauzon and Curt Warburton was also announced for the card earlier today.

“UFC on Versus 4” takes place inside the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Versus will broadcast the show live at 9PM ET/6PM PT.

Here are the athletes expected to participate in the freebie fight card:

Joe Stevenson vs. Javier Vazquez
Joe Lauzon vs. Curt Warburton
Michael Johnson vs. Edward Faaloloto
Tyson Griffin vs. Manny Gamburyan
Rich Attonito vs. Matt Brown
Matt Mitrione vs. Christian Morecraft
Pat Barry vs. Cheick Kongo*
