Four bouts including Tyson Griffin vs. Hermes Franca, Josh Koscheck vs. Frank Trigg, Efrain Escudero vs. Cole Miller, and Mike Swick vs. Martin Kampmann have been set in stone by the Ultimate Fighting Championship for UFC 103.

The event is set to take place in Dallas, Texas on September 19 from the American Airlines Center.

UFC President Dana White has also recently confirmed a heavyweight bout between Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic and Junior dos Santos for UFC 103 to Yahoo! Sports.

Griffin will be looking to win his sixth fight in the UFC’s lightweight division in his last seven bouts as he takes on Franca who will be looking to win his second straight fight in the UFC after suffering back to back losses.

Koscheck hopes to get back in the win column following his shocking knockout defeat at the hands of Paulo Thiago during UFC 95 when he faces off with Trigg who has won his last four fights outside of the octagon. This will be Trigg’s first return to the UFC since suffering a submission defeat to current welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre at UFC 54.

TUF 8 lightweight winner Escudero hopes to keep his undefeated record intact as he butts heads with a dangerous submission artist in Miller.

The winner of the welterweight bout between Swick and Kampmann will likely be pushed that much closer to a future title shot with St. Pierre as both men have racked up multiple impressive victories at 170 pounds.

The UFC has yet to announce a main event for the card.
