UFC 170: Officials Confirm Handful of New Signings To Card

UFC officials have been busy working on putting together UFC 170, which goes down a week from this Saturday night.

While bouts between UFC female bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and Sara McMann, Daniel Cormier and Rashad Evans, and Demian Maia and Rory MacDonald have all remained intact, several undercard fights have been re-worked.

First, the signing of Pedro Munhoz was made official, as the Resurrection Fighting Alliance champion will make his debut against Raphael Assuncao on the FOX Sports 1 prelim portion of the night.

Munhoz is a perfect 10-0 in his career, while Assuncao has won five straight and is 21-4.

Another prelim fight on FS1 will see newcomers Cody Gibson and Aljamain Sterling meet. Sterling was announced previously as an injury replacement, while Gibson does the same.
