The UFC on FOX 11 lineup continues to fill out with solid bouts as the promotion announced today that Thiago Alves would be returning against Seth Baczynski and TUF 17′s Josh Samman will take on Caio Magalhaes. The UFC announced the new bouts earlier Thursday.
Thiago Alves has not fought since his 2012 loss to Martin Kampmann at UFC on FX 2. The ATT fighter has battled injuries and a serious medical scare but will look to get back in the win column for the first time since 2011. Baczynski heads into the bout coming off his UFC Fight for the Troops 3 victory over Neil Magny that allowed him to snap a two fight losing streak.
In the second announced pairing, TUF 17 semifinalist Josh Samman will take on Caio Magalhaes. Samman has not fought since defeating fellow alum Kevin Casey at the reality show’s April 2013 finale due to injury but will look to stay officially perfect in the Octagon when he takes on the Brazilian fighter.
UFC on FOX 11 will take place April 19 at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. The FOX network card will be headlined by a heavyweight number one contender’s bout between Travis Browne and Fabrico Werdum.
