The UFC Fight Night 43 fight card is shaping up fast. After revealing John Dodson vs. John Moraga for the event in Albuquerque, New Mexico, UFC announced that Sergio Pettis will meet Yaotzin Meza on June 7.

Sergio Pettis (10-1), the younger brother of UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, suffered his first professional loss against Alex Caceres in his last appearance in January. Meza (20-9) returns to the cage following a decision loss to Chico Camus.

The UFC also has a new bout scheduled for UFC 174 card in Vancouver on June 14, as Yves Jabouin has agreed to take on Mike Easton. Jabouin (19-9) looks to get back on track after a TKO loss to Eddie Wineland, while Easton (13-4) tries to bounce back after three straight losses in the UFC.

Two more match-ups were added to the TUF Brazil 3 Finale card in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on May 31, featuring a trio of undefeated fighters.

Sao Paulo’s Elias Silverio will take on Ernest Chavez in the lightweight division. Silverio (10-0) defeated Isaac Vallie-Flagg and Joao Zeferino in his UFC appearances, while Chavez (7-0) beat Yosdenis Cedeno in his Octagon debut.

In the featherweight division, Edimilson Souza is set to take on unbeaten Philipino fighter Mark Eddiva. "Kevin" Souza (14-3) broke his hand during his UFC debut in September, but defeated Felipe Arantes via decision. Eddiva (6-0) is also 1-0 under the UFC banner after a win over Jumabieke Tuerxun.
