The UFC 166 fight card is quickly taking shape.

A lightweight contest between George Sotiropoulos and K.J. Noons, and a heavyweight clash between Shawn Jordan and Gabriel Gonzaga, have been added to UFC 166 on Oct. 19 in Houston.

Sotiropoulos is on a three-fight skid and hasn't fought since Dec. 15, 2012 when he was knocked out in the third round by Ross Pearson. Noons has also lost three fights in a row, and five of his last six. He lost via unanimous decision to Donald Cerrone at UFC 160.

Jordan has won three of his past four fights, including a first-round knockout of Pat Barry at UFC 161. Gonzaga has won four of his past five fights, including a first-round knockout of Dave Herman at UFC 162 in 17 seconds.

Cain Velasquez will defend his heavyweight title against Junior dos Santos in the main event.
