ufc fight night 44

Officials inside the UFC home offices have been busy working on several upcoming cards over the past few days.

A new bout was added to UFC Fight Night 46 from Dublin, Ireland following Wednesday’s edition of The Ultimate Fighter 19. Season contestant and semifinalist Cathal Pendred will meet Mike King.

Pendred (13-2-1) was defeated by Eddie Gordon on the show, ending his run but not his chance inside the Octagon. King (5-0) was also stopped on TUF 19 by Gordon in the quarterfinals.

At UFC Fight Night 44 later this month, Ray Borg will now meet Shane Howell. An injury to Ryan Benoit forced the change.

Howell (13-7) will be making his debut with the promotion against Borg (6-1) in a flyweight affair. It was first reported by MMAjunkie.com.

In another report by MMAjunkie.com, Joe Ellenberger has yet again received a new opponent, now meeting James Moontasri at UFC Fight Night 44. Moontasri (7-1) will be taking the place of Bryan Barberena.
