Now that UFC 137 is officially in the record books, Octagon officials have now shifted their focus towards “UFC 141: Lesnar vs. Overeem.” After announcing the card’s co-main event between Nate Diaz and Donald Cerrone on Monday, the promotion added two featherweight scraps to the December 30th lineup.

Manny Gamburyan and Diego Nunes have re-booked their 145-pound affair. They were originally slated to meet at UFC 135 in September, but their contest was nixed after both men suffered injuries leading up to showtime.

In addition, Ross Pearson (Pictured) is dropping to the featherweight class to battle Junior Assuncao.

UFC 141 takes place inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. A heavyweight top contender bout between Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem headlines the pay-per-view broadcast.

Here is the card’s updated roster:

Manny Gamburyan vs. Diego Nunes

Ross Pearson vs. Junior Assuncao

TJ Grant vs. Jacob Volkmann

Sean Pierson vs. Dong Hyun Kim

Vladimir Matyushenko vs. Alexander Gustafsson
