Mexico City Card Gets Two Adds

The UFC’s June 13 card in Mexico City, headlined by the world heavyweight title fight between Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum, continues to grow with the addition of two bouts between Octagon up and comers.

In the welterweight division, popular hometown favorite Augusto “Dodger” Montano will seek his second UFC win when he battles rising Irish star Cathal Pendred, who is unbeaten in three Octagon starts.

Also added to the card is a clash of former Ultimate Fighter standouts, as “The Tiny Tornado,” Tecia Torres, takes on Angela “Overkill” Hill in what is expected to be a strawweight striking battle.

Tickets for UFC 188, which takes place at the Mexico City Arena, go on sale on March 18.
