The fight card for UFC 192 continues to fill out as two bouts have now been added to the card. The Houston Chronicle reports a flyweight bout between Joseph Benavidez and Ali Bagautinov as well as a women's strawweight contest between Angela Hill and Rose Namajunas will now take place at that event.

Benavidez is riding a three-fight win streak, having most recently defeated John Moraga via unanimous decision at UFC 187 in May of this year. Ali Bagautinov returns from a performance-enhancing drug (PED)-related suspension following his last bout in June of 2014, a flyweight title fight he lost via unanimous decision to champion Demetrious Johnson.

Hill returns to action after suffering her first professional defeat at the hands of Tecia Torres in June at UFC 188. Namajunas is also looking to rebound after losing a contest for the UFC strawweight title against then-champion Carla Esparza at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 20 Finale in December of 2014. Both were TUF 20 season contestants.

UFC 192 is headlined by a light heavyweight title clash between champion Daniel Cormier and challenger Alexander Gustafsson. The event will take place on October 3 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
