Two fights were added to upcoming UFC cards in November, the promotion announced Tuesday.

Expected to draw 70,000 fans to the Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia, on Nov. 14, UFC 193 will feature the return of Brisbane’s Brendan O'Reilly against TUF Brazil 2 runner-up William Macario.

O'Reilly (6-1, 1 no-contest) enters the bout coming off a decision win over Vik Grujic in May in Adelaide, while Macario (7-3) has his back against the wall after losing three of his four UFC fights.

Welterweight champion Robbie Lawler headlines the card against former interim champion Carlos Condit.

A week later, UFC Fight Night 78 takes place at the Monterrey Arena in Monterrey, Mexico, featuring a battle between Brazilian lightweights Valmir Lazaro and Michel Prazeres.

Lazaro (13-3) returns nine months after a split decision win over James Krause, his first victory inside the Octagon, while Prazeres (18-2) looks to bounce back after having his two-fight winning streak snapped by Kevin Lee in February.

UFC Fight Night 78 airs live on Fox Sports 1, with welterweight veteran Matt Brown facing Kelvin Gastelum in the main event.
