Three new fights have been added to the UFC 192 fight card on October 3 in Houston with the new fights being Julianna Pena vs. Jessica Eye, Sergio Pettis vs. Chris Cariaso, and Alan Jouban vs. Albert Tumenov.

The fight bookings were made official by the UFC earlier today.

UFC 192 will take place from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas and will be headlined by a title fight as Daniel Cormier defends the light heavyweight title against Alexander Gustafsson.

Pena the winner of the Ultimate Fighter, had a long lay off since winning the show back in 2013 due to injury. Pena returned to the octagon last April in Fairfax where she would earn a ‘Performance of the Night’ bonus for her TKO win over Milana Dudieva.

Eye  is coming off a decision defeat against Miesha Tate two weeks ago at UFC on FOX 16. She is 1-2, 1NC in the UFC and the win came against Leslie Smith.

Pettis did not make the perfect start in the flyweight division by any means. Dropping down to 125 after going 3-1 in the UFC at 135lbs, Pettis was upset by Ryan Benoit at UFC 185.  Cariaso has dropped back to back fights after being on a three fight winning streak. His most recent fight came in March as he was defeated by Henry Cejudo.

Jouban has gone 3-1 in the UFC and is coming off a Fight of the Night victory against Matt Dwyer. Two of his three wins in the UFC have come by knockout and has won a fight night bonus twice since coming to the promotion. Tumenov is currently on a three fight winning streak after losing his UFC debut against Ildemar Alcântara. His last appearance in the cage came in January as he defeated Nico Musoke by unanimous decision.

The current UFC 192 fight card is below as it stands today.

Daniel Cormier vs. Alexander Gustafsson
Rashad Evans vs. Ryan Bader
Ruslan Magomedov vs. Shawn Jordan
Yair Rodriguez vs. Dan Hooker
Julianna Pena vs. Jessica Eye
Sergio Pettis vs. Chris Cariaso
Alan Jouban vs. Albert Tumenov

  1. Agreed Barry ,some thought bader would get the next shot anyway he is on a good streak, still think Cormier is safe until john Jones return , don’t see Gustafson winning it even though he pushed Jones pretty hard, good fight this wkend with St.preux and Teixeira too

  2. Some good match ups on this card. I am really looking forward to seeing Rashad back in competition although it’s no easy tsst against Bader, Surly the winner is next in line for a title shot?
