Four bouts added to UFC 99 'The Comeback'

The UFC has added four more bouts to UFC 99 "The Comeback" on June 13 in Lanxess, Germany.

The only bout previously official was the main event between Rich Franklin and Wanderlei Silva at a catchweight of 195 pounds.

Mike Swick (13-2) and Ben Saunders (7-0-2) are coming off dominant striking efforts this past December at the "UFC Fight For The Troops" special. The two former "The Ultimate Fighter"contestants will meet each other in a welterweight bout.

Dan Hardy (21-6-1) spoke at the UFC 95 post-fight press conference following his win over Rory Markham about wanting to fight Marcus Davis (21-5). The UFC has granted Hardy's request.

Dale Hartt (6-1)'s last victory was less than fulfilling. The lightweight from Bangor, Maine watched as his opponent suffered a gruesome broken leg injury for the referee stoppage. Hartt will return at UFC 99 for an attempt at his first solid win when he takes on Dennis Siver (13-6) out of Mannheim, Germany.

Despite a 20-2 record coming into Stefan Struve's UFC debut at UFC 95 in February, the 21-year-old heavyweight suffered a 54-second TKO loss to Junior Dos Santos. Struve was expected to be cut, but he's been brought back to fight another fighter out of the Netherlands Denis Stojnic (12-2), who lost in his UFC debut last month to Cain Velasquez.
