Four lightweight fights have been added to the next UFC on FOX event, including fights featuring another pair of Strikeforce imports.

The unbeaten Myles Jury (11-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) takes on "TUF 13" winner Ramsey Nijem (7-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC); "TUF Smashes" lightweight winner Norman Parke (17-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) meets Jon Tuck (7-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC); Strikeforce vet Jorge Masvidal (23-7 MMA, 0-0 UFC) faces Tim Means (18-3-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC); and fellow Strikeforce crossover Roger Bowling (11-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC) fights Anthony Njokuani (15-7 MMA, 2-3 UFC). UFC officials announced the four match ups late Wednesday.

UFC on FOX 7 takes place April 20 at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. The main card airs on FOX following prelims on FX. The main event is a lightweight title fight between champion Benson Henderson and former Strikeforce champ Gilbert Melendez. Tickets for the show go on sale next week.

Those are some fun match-ups. Very interested in Masvidal/Means.

All 4 of these are great fights.

I'm a huge Masvidal fan I hope he gets the win in this one. I've wanted to see him in the UFC for a long time now

All solid fights. Should be entertaining. Most excited for Jury vs. Nijem.

Hope Njokuani gets it together. He's a real exciting fighter I hope can carve out a place in the big show. Also would have liked Masvidal fight someone alittle higher up like Edson Barboza or RDA, but atleast the Means match up should be exciting

Great additions, I was a little worried that the UFC wasn't going to sign Masvidal but that is great first fight for him. War written all over it!
