The UFC on FOX Sports 1 #3 show is quickly adding depth, with four matches announced or confirmed over the weekend.

Among the most notable additions is a middleweight bout between veteran Rafael Natal and recent Ultimate Fighter season 17 contestant Tor Troeng.

Natal (16-4-1) will be looking to make it three in a row at the show, which takes place at Mineirinho Arena in Belo Horizonte, Brazil on Sept. 4. He has consecutive wins over Joao Zeferino and Sean Spencer.

Troeng (16-4) recently made his official octagon debut with a first-round submission win over Adam Cella at UFC on FUEL 9.

Also added to the card are the following matchups: Johnny Bedford vs. Hugo Viana, Marcos Vinicius vs. Ali Bagautinov, and Marcelo Guimaraes vs. Keith Wisniewski.

The bantamweight bout between Bedford (19-10-1) and Viana (7-1) features two fighters looking to rebound from losses. Bedford was choked out by Bryan Caraway in April while Viana was TKO'd by T.J. Dillashaw during the same month.

Vinicius (20-4-1) will be competing for the first time since last December, when he was KO'd by the aforementioned Bedford. In Bagautinov (10-2), he'll be facing an octagon rookie.

Guimares (8-1-1) suffered a knockout loss to Lim Hyun Gyu in his last time out. In Wisniewski (28-14-1), he'll be facing a grizzled veteran. The Indiana-based fighter has over 40 pro fights, but will be looking to snap a two-fight losing streak after consecutive losses to Chris Clements and Josh Neer.

The UFC on FOX Sports 1 #3 main event matches powerful light-heavyweights Glover Teixeira and Ryan Bader.
