Seven bouts made official for UFC 216 card

The first batch of UFC 216 bouts are official and ready to take place at T-Mobile Arena on Oct. 7, with contenders and hot prospects from heavyweight to flyweight squaring off in Las Vegas this fall.

In heavyweight action, knockout artist Walt Harris puts his two-fight winning streak on the line as he seeks another early finish against British banger Mark "The Hand of" Godbeer.

Fresh from wins over Caio Magalhaes and Elias Theodorou, Brad Tavares hopes a win over No. 12-ranked Thales Leites in October will earn him a place in the top 15.

The lightweight division will be represented on the UFC 216 card, with No. 14-ranked Evan Dunham getting a home game in Vegas against No. 12-ranked Beneil Dariush, rising star Lando Vannata taking on Abel Trujillo, and veterans Will Brooks and Nik Lentz battling it out in the Octagon.

Plus, a pair of flyweight bouts will see No. 10-ranked John Moraga face No. 15-ranked Magomed Bibulatov, while up and comers Matt Schnell and Marco Beltran face off.
