A pair of intriguing matchups have been added to UFC 199.

A featherweight contenders bout between Max Holloway and Ricardo Lamas, and a previously reported bout between Dan Henderson and Hector Lombard, have been added to the June 4 event in Inglewood, Calif., the company formally announced Wednesday via UFC Tonight.

Holloway (15-3) has been the fastest-rising featherweight not named Conor McGregor. Since losing a decision to McGregor in 2013, the 24-year-old from Waianae, Hawaii has won eight consecutive fights, including six via finish.

Lamas (16-4), meanwhile, is no slouch himself. The former title challenger is 3-1 since losing to then-champion Jose Aldo at UFC 169, with his most recent fight a decision win over Diego Sanchez in November.

Future Hall of Famer Henderson, meanwhile, is coming off having his UFC on FOX 19 bout against Lyoto Machida, which was scheduled for last week, canceled when Machida self-reported a potential USADA violation. Henderson told MMAFighting last week the bout with Lombard was on tap.

Henderson (31-14), the former two-weight class PRIDE champion, has lost three of his last four fights, most recently a KO loss to Vitor Belfort in Brazil. Lombard (34-5-1, 2 NC), a former Bellator middleweight champ, makes his return to 185 pounds.

Also officially announced on UFC Tonight was a previously reported strawweight matchup between former Invicta atomweight champ Jessica Penne (12-3) and Jessica Andrade (13-5). Penne looks to rebound from a loss to current champ Joanna Jędrzejczyk, while Andrade is dropping down from bantamweight.
