UFC 212 card adds three bouts

Three bouts have been added to the UFC 212 event in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, with a mix of veterans and rising stars taking to the Octagon on June 3.

In middleweight action, former TUF Brazil winner Antonio Carlos Junior will likely get the opportunity to show off his ground game against fellow jiu-jitsu ace Eric Spicely.

In his first bout since a TKO victory over Manvel Gamburyan in November, veteran Brazilian battler Johnny Eduardo returns to take on talented bantamweight prospect Matthew Lopez.

And in flyweight action, Marco Beltran will face off against Octagon newcomer Deiveson Alcantara.

UFC 212, which is headlined by the UFC featherweight championship bout between Jose Aldo and Max Holloway, airs live on Pay-Per-View.
