A pair of new matchups has been added to April's UFC 159 event as Phil Davis meets Vinny Magalhaes in a light heavyweight affair, while Cheick Kongo faces Roy Nelson in a heavyweight contest.

UFC officials announced the two bouts on Tuesday's new edition of "UFC Tonight."

UFC 159, which features a title fight between light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones and "The Ultimate Fighter 17" fellow head coach Chael Sonnen, takes place April 27 at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

Vinny gets his wish, let's see if he can walk the walk

I'd love to see Davis submit him.

Nice fights, I don't think I've ever wanted to see a fighter get knocked out every single time he fights, but with Chieck Kongo, that's the only time I like seeing him in the octagon.

I was hoping Nelson would fight Barnett to be honest but I like this fight as well.

Davis vs. Magalhaes is a good fight too. I think Davis is going to be skilled enough to avoid the subs though.

Not going to happen, unless Vinny is already unconscious.

Stylistically Davis is a great matchup for Vinny. Davis is a great fighter but he hasnt shown much of a stand up game since he debuted with the ufc. Taking Vinny down might be his undoing. Awesome fight & Nelson should finish Kongo devastatingly

I like these fights, I am going to this card so...so far so good. I wish they would add Jim Miller vs. TJ Grant as well, that would be a solid 4 fights for the Main Card and they'd only have to find 1 more. As far as the undercard goes, it will be easy for them to fill with the influx of NE fighters.

Davis via sub. Vinny stands no chance.

Kongo and Nelson is a good match up. Should be a good stand up war. Nelson will act as a punching bag until he catches Kongo with something. Zombie slug fest.

Davis via sub? That's just silly.

Kongo vs Nelson at a first glance says Nelson by KO. But i would love it if Kongo becomes the first one to give Nelson his first KO loss. I doubt it though.

I hope Nelson lands that overhand and sends Kongo to sleep.

Davis vs Magalhaes is a pretty interesting fight. I see Decision written all over this. I think Davis is skilled enough to avoid the Sub and his wrestling should be the deciding factor.
