Following Tuesday's official announcement of UFC 116 and a headliner of UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar vs interim title-holder Shane Carwin, Ultimate Fighting Championship officials have added six additional fights to the July 3 card.

Main-card additions include Yoshihiro Akiyama vs. Wanderlei Silva and a Krzysztof Soszynski vs. Stephan Bonnar rematch, both of which MMAjunkie.com previously reported.

Official for the un-aired preliminary card include Brendan Schaub vs. Chris Tuchscherer, Kendall Grove vs. Goran Reljic, Chris Lytle vs. Matt Brown, and Jon Madsen vs. Karlos Vemola.

This card is looking stellar. I can't wait to see the Soszynski and Bonnar rematch. Also, I've been looking forward to Sexillama vs. Silva for quite some time.

I wouldn't call Soszynski Bonnar 2 an immediate rematch as much as I would call it UFC make amends for an absolutely horrible call by the judges. It was clearly a headbutt and should have been ruled a NC. The only people in the world who didn't see that were the ringside judges and doctor. In my eyes, this is Soszynski vs Bonnar 1.
