A trio of new fights have been added to UFC on FOX 5.
Surprise TUF: Live winner Michael Chiesa leads the announcements, as "Maverick" will meet Rafaello Oliveira in a lightweight bout on the night's undercard. Featherweights Dennis Siver vs. Eddie Yagin and bantamweights Scott Jorgensen vs. John Albert are also official.
The undefeated Chiesa (8-0) ran to the TUF: Live title on a string of upset victories, capping the season with a first-round submission over Al Iaquinta. He'll now face Oliveira (15-5), who carries a 1-2 record over his last three fights, including a recent decision victory over Yoislandy Izquierdo.
Siver (20-8) and Yagin (16-5-1) were the last displaced members of UFC 151, and they'll still meet, just three months later than expected. Both men are coming off wins, as Siver topped Diego Nunes in his featherweight debut and Yagin upset Mark Hominick at UFC 145.
Lastly, the stakes are markedly higher for both Jorgensen (13-6) and Albert (7-3). Each fighter will look to stop a two-fight losing streak, though Jorgensen, a former WEC title contender, has fallen to much higher competition in losses to Eddie Wineland and Renan Barao.
