PostSubject: UFC Confirms Additional Bouts for UFC 84   Sun 16 Mar 2008, 3:22 pm



Although UFC 84's main event features a lightweight title fight, the undercard of the event will be all about the light heavyweights.

The UFC today confirmed three bouts we previously reported here at MMAjunkie.com, including Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou (4-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) vs. Kazuhiro Nakamura (11-7 MMA, 0-1 UFC), Thiago Silva (12-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) vs. Antonio Mendes (14-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC), and Goran Reljic (7-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) vs. Wilson Gouveia (10-4 MMA, 4-1 UFC).

The bouts were reported on UFC.com.

UFC 84 takes place May 24 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. UFC lightweight champ B.J. Penn meets Sean Sherk in the main event.

Additionally, while still unannounced by the UFC, a heavyweight bout between Shane Carwin (8-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) vs. Christian Wellisch (8-3 MMA, 2-1 UFC) will also take place at the event.

Carwin, a three-time NCAA Division II All-American and national champ in wrestling and two-time All-American in football, signed with the UFC in January. The highly touted prospect has already competed for organizations such as the Art of War and the WEC, and all eight of his victories have come via first-round stoppage. The average time of each fight? Just 72 seconds.

He'll make his UFC debut against Wellisch, who will go for his third straight victory in the UFC. After a loss to Cheick Kongo in his octagon debut, Welisch has posted victories over Anthony Perosh and Scott Junk.

The latest UFC 84 fight card now includes:
