Two Bouts Added To UFC 87 Card


An already impressive event has gotten even better; according to Jordan Breen of, two more bouts have been added to the UFC 87: Seek and Destroy event, which will take place on August 9 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, MN.  The first addition pits UFC newcomer Andre Gusmao against Polish powerhouse Tomasz Drwal while the second will be Tamdan McCrory against Luke Cummo

The Brazilian Gusmao is a product of the IFL and is currently undefeated at 5-0 while Drwal, is coming off a defeat at the hands of Thiago Silva last September in London, England.  McCrory had a successful octagon debut last June as he defeated Pete Spratt; however, he lost to Akihiri Gono due to an armbar.  After a pair of victories – over Josh Haynes and Edilberto de Oliveira – Cummo was defeated at the hands of Luigi Fioravanti last March.  Because of the 2 new bout additions, the UFC 87 card looks like this*:

  • Georges St. Pierre vs. Jon Fitch
  • Kenny Florian vs. Roger Huerta
  • Brock Lesnar vs. Heath Herring
  • Cheick Kongo vs. Dan Evensen
  • Hermes Franca vs. Frank Edgar
  • Chris Wilson vs. Steve Bruno
  • Ben Saunders vs. Jared Rollins

*Card is subject to change.
