Two Bouts Added to Stacked Newark Card

After a career-best year in 2015 that included UFC wins over Marcus Brimage and Pedro Munhoz, bantamweight prospect Jimmie Rivera will get a home game in Newark, New Jersey on January 30 when he faces number 15-ranked Iuri Alcantara in a UFC Fight Night bout at Prudential Center.

The FOX-televised event is headlined by the light heavyweight bout between Anthony "Rumble" Johnson and Ryan "Darth" Bader. Tickets are on sale now.

Also added to the event is a featherweight matchup between Levan Makashvili and Damon Jackson. Winner of two of his last three, including a UFC victory over Mark Eddiva, Makashvili will match his ground attack against submission specialist Jackson, who is seeking his first Octagon win.
