UFC Announces Two Big Additions To UFC 85

Get ready London. The UFC has taken lemons and turned them into lemonade. A card that many were just days ago calling unfit for pay-per-view just received a strong infusion with the addition of Matt Hughes vs. Thiago Alves and Micheal Bisping vs. Chris Leban.

Many thought the card was mortally wounded with the loss of Mauricio Rua and Chuck Liddell, who were both forced to pull out of the card due to injuries. But, it appears that the UFC was able to rebound nicely and throw in a few “bonus” fights for our trouble. Seriously, this card is stacked. The addition of the two aforementioned fights pushes the count of “main card” quality match-ups on this card to seven. Yes, seven high quality match-ups. Let’s hope the UFC airs more than six fights on the PPV this time around. Take a look at the current UFC 85 fight card as it stands:

-Thiago Alves vs. Matt Hughes

-Michael Bisping vs. Chris Leben

-Rashad Evans vs. James Irvin

-Brandon Vera vs. Fabricio Werdum
