Four more bouts officially added to UFC 87

The UFC’s official website, UFC.com, has announced four additional bouts for August 9th’s UFC 87: Seek and Destroy.

A heavyweight tilt between Cheick Kongo (11-4-2) and UFC newcomer Dan Evensen (10-2), a very intriguing lightweight bout between Frankie Edgar (8-1) and Hermes Franca (18-6) and two welterweight fights featuring Chris Wilson (13-4) vs. Steve Bruno (11-3) and Ben Saunders (5-0-2) vs. Jared Rollins (6-4).

It is interesting to note that both Chris Wilson vs. Steve Bruno and Ben Saunders vs. Jared Rollins were originally rumored to take place on next month’s UFC 86.

UFC 87 is set to take at the Target Center, MN and will feature a welterweight title fight between Georges St. Pierre and Jon Fitch as a main event with a lightweight number 1 contender battle between Roger Huerta and Kenny Florian and a heavyweight bout between Brock Lesnar and Heath Herring serving as co-main events.

    Hell yeah i cant wait for this card.
    I personally have extreme anticipation for Edgar vs Franca, and to see Huerta fight again.
    Can Fitch really be athreat to GSP? I dont think so.
    Really hope for oursakes and his reputation, that lesnar gets put through a WAR and is TESTED by Herring.

    This looks like the best UFC card in a very long time; every single one of those fights sounds compelling.

    yep Frankie Edgar (8-1) and Hermes Franca (18-6) could be awesome.
    looks almost as entertaining a card as UFN13
