The UFC has been busy lately signing new fights for the coming months. Over the last few days, a number of fights have been agreed upon. Here is a rundown of the latest fight announcements:

Today, the UFC announced that Abel Trujillo and Bobby Green will fight on Super Bowl weekend at UFC 169. Trujillo and Green both recently won their respective fights at UFC on FOX 9. Trujillo defeated Roger Bowling by TKO in round 2, while Green picked up the unanimous decision victory over Pat Healy.

Iuri Alcantara and Wilson Reis will battle in Brazil at UFC Fight Night 36. Alcantara most recently lost to Urijah Faber back in August. Reis is currently on a five fight winning streak, and won his UFC debut over Ivan Menjivar back at UFC 165.

TUF: The Smashes winner, Robert Whittaker is set to face Stephen Thompson at UFC 170. Whittaker most recently lost to Court McGee in a controversial decision back at UFC Fight Night 27. Thompson is currently on a two fight winning streak, picking up victories over Chris Clements and Nah-Shon Burrell.

Bantamweights, Francisco Rivera and Raphael Assuncao, will battle at UFC 170 in a critical bout. The winner of this fight will inch one step closer to a UFC title shot. Assuncao recently defeated TJ Dillashaw at UFC Fight Night 29, extending his winning streak to five straight. Rivera is undefeated in the UFC, but did have a failed drug test that turned his win over Roland Delorme to a No Contest. Since then, Rivera has defeated Edwin Figueroa and George Roop by TKO.
