The UFC had a busy weekend of announcements for two upcoming television fight cards.

UFC on FX 3 was finalized with the addition of four new bouts. Welterweight wrestler Charlie Brenneman and Brazilian upstart Erick Silva will meet on the main card. Brenneman enters this bout having defeated Daniel Roberts at UFC on FX 1. Silva returns to action after losing by controversial disqualification.

In addition, middleweight Buddy Roberts will square off against Caio Magalhaes. Both middleweights are making their UFC debuts.

Two lightweight bouts were also added to the card. Tim Means will battle Justin Salas and Bernardo Magalhaes faces Henry Martinez. While Means and Salas were successful in the UFC debuts, Magalhaes and Martinez both dropped their first fights inside the Octagon.

The announcements were made on the UFC's website.

The June 8th card at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida and airing on Fuel TV and FX is the location voted as part of the UFC's Hometown Throwdown contest. The card is headlined by the flyweight rematch between Demetrious Johnson and Ian McCall.

The UFC also announced three new fights added to the The Ultimate Fighter Live Finale fight card.

Jonathan Brookins, season 12 winner of 'The Ultimate Fighter', will face Charles Oliveira. Brookins enters this bout having stopped Vagner Rocha via strikes in the first round at UFC on FUEL TV 1. This is Oliveira's second bout at featherweight. He won his debut via cafe slicer in the first round over Eric Wisely at UFC on Fox 2.

The UFC announced another featherweight bout: Max Holloway vs. Pat Schilling. Holloway lost his UFC debut by submission to Dustin Poirier at UFC 143. Pat Schilling enter this bout also having lost his UFC debut to Daniel Pineda at UFC on FX 1.

Last, but not least, Byron Bloodworth - who lost his UFC debut to Mike Easton at UFC on Versus 6 - will take on John Albert. The Canadian Albert looks to rebound after losing to Ivan Menjivar at UFC on FUEL TV.

The finale for TUF: Live is scheduled to take place June 1 at the Palms Resort Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event is headlined by a five-round, number-one contender's bout between Martin Kampmann and Jake Ellenberger.
