Two welterweight bouts have been officially added to July’s UFC on FOX: Lawler vs. Brown event.

Set for July 26 from the SAP Center in San Jose, the card features welterweight contenders Robbie Lawler and Matt Brown in the main event. Other announced fights include Anthony Johnson vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Josh Thomson vs. Michael Johnson.

The two new bouts will see Viscardi Andrade (17-6) take on Andreas Stahl (9-0), while a previously reported fight featuring Tim Means (20-6-1) and Hernani Perpetuo (17-4) has also been confirmed.

Andrade had his seven-fight win streak snapped by Nicholas Musoke in Brazil this past February. He had scored a TKO over Bristol Marunde last August in his Octagon debut. Stahl enters the promotion with a perfect record, including four stoppage wins.

Means is in his second stint with the UFC and is coming off a decision loss to Neil Magny. He is 4-3 in his last seven overall. Perpetuo dropped his debut inside the Octagon via split decision in April to Jordan Mein, snapping a nine-fight unbeaten streak.
