UFC Manny Gamburyan

To help speed up a relatively slow MMA news day, the planet’s largest mixed martial arts promotion announced a pair of fights for their “UFC 135: Jones vs. Rampage” event on September 24th.

Manny Gamburyan vs. Diego Nunes, as well as Cole Escovedo vs. Takeya Mizugaki was added to the event’s star-studded roster. It’s highly unlikely either of the scraps will make it on the main card, as each of the athletes are coming off losses – some might be fighting for their big league lives.

The Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado will host the show. A light heavyweight title tilt between champion Jon Jones and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson will headline the pay-per-view broadcast.

Here is the card’s updated roster:

Ben Rothwell vs. Mark Hunt

James Te Huna vs. Ricardo Romero

Cole Escovedo vs. Takeya Mizugaki

Manny Gamburyan vs. Diego Nunes

Nick Ring vs. Tim Boetsch

Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto vs. Damacio Page

Nate Diaz vs. Takanori Gomi

Tony Ferguson vs. Aaron Riley

Travis Browne vs. Rob Broughton

Diego Sanchez vs. Matt Hughes

Quinton “Rampage” Jackson vs. Jon Jones (UFC Light Heavyweight Champion)
