MMA Junkie reports that four fights have been added to UFC Fight Night in Dublin, Ireland. In addition to the previously announced fight of Ryan LaFlare vs Gunnar Nelson, the card will include Ian McCall (12-4-1 MMA, 1-2-1 UFC) vs Brad Pickett (24-8 MMA, 4-3 UFC), Ilir Latifi (8-3-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) vs Tom Lawlor (9-5 MMA, 5-4 UFC), Phil Harris (22-12 MMA, 1-3 UFC) vs Neil Seery (13-10 MMA, 0-1 UFC) and Cody Donovan (8-4 MMA, 1-2 UFC) vs Nikita Krylov (16-4 MMA, 1-2 UFC). The event will take place on July 19 at the O2. It's the UFC's second visit to Dublin and will stream on UFC Fight Pass in the US. Tickets go on sale in June.
Pickett said: "I've never looked forward to punching someone in the face as much as Ian McCall in my life. I've never had the chance to visit Ireland, but the support Neil Seery received from the Irish fans when I fought him in London was amazing. I hope they'll be able to show me the same this time round."
Featherweights Conor McGregor and Cole Miller have both said they would like to main event the card. A headlining fight hasn't been set yet.
Here's the current card:
Ryan LaFlare vs. Gunnar Nelson
Ian McCall vs. Brad Pickett
Ilir Latifi vs. Tom Lawlor
