The UFC Fight Night 62 card is now complete with the addition of three new match-ups for the March 21 card in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The promotion announced on Monday that Katsunori Kikuno and Edmilson Souza are set to collide in the featherweight division. Kikuno (22-6-2) returns to the cage after tapping Sam Sicilia in September, while Souza (16-3) looks for his 11th win in a row, the third under the UFC banner following wins over Felipe Arantes and Mark Eddiva.

In the lightweight division, Christos Giagos takes on Jorge de Oliveira, as both look for their first UFC win. Giagos (10-3), a former RFA 155-pound champion, tapped to Gilbert Burns in his Octagon debut, while "Blade" (7-1) lost a decision to TUF 19 runner-up Dhiego Lima.

The third bout officially announced features TUF: Latin America alums Bentley Syler and Fredy Serrano. Born in Bolivia, Syler (5-0) lost to Jose Quinones in the reality show, while Serrano (1-0) was eliminated from the competition with a loss to Alejandro Perez.
