Wednesday Fight Update

It's been a busy day in the UFC matchmaking office, with three new matchups announced for upcoming events.

On June 6 in New Orleans, the UFC Fight Night card headlined by the middleweight bout between Dan Henderson and Tim Boetsch is now complete with the addition of a clash of lightweight prospects Christos "The Spartan" Giagos and Chris Wade.

And in Berlin, Germany on June 20, Japan's Ulka Sasaki will square off with France's Taylor Lapilus in a bantamweight matchup.
