A pair of key featherweight matchups have been added to July's UFC 162 event, as former UFC lightweight champ Frankie Edgar (15-4-1 MMA, 9-4-1 UFC) faces Charles Oliveira (16-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC) and Dennis Siver (21-8 MMA, 10-5 UFC) meets Cub Swanson (19-5 MMA, 4-1 UFC).

UFC officials today announced the new matchups.

Featuring a middleweight title fight between current champ Anderson Silva and undefeated contender Chris Weidman, UFC 162 takes place July 6 at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Why isn't Frankie fighting Cub?


Great card regardless!

Oliveira has huge potential but falters under pressure. Ill take frankie to get the finish.

If cub tries to strike the whole time with Siver he'll find himself in trouble, but if he uses his wrestling I think he'll come away with the win.

I can see why Edgar vs Swanson never happened
Two great fights. Three huge featherweight cards
With title implications

Yup he's fighting Darren Elkins in April, who stepped in for Clay Guida. I agree he's a sleeper, everyone keeps pulling out of fights with him though!

I actually enjoy the fact that Frankie is fighting Oliviera...it's time for him to start fresh again.

Not sure how he's a sleeper, he fought for the title a year ago and they just want him to keep putting guys away while they give title shots to lw at fw.

I definitely like cub for this matchup, siver is talented but he comes across a bit lax since he doesn't have that killer instinct. He always let's hurt guys off the hook and cub is someone you don't want to give a second chance.

The edgar oliviera fight seems a bit random but after fighting 3 guys in 6 fights I am excited to see edgar mix it up with someone totally different than his last 7 fights.

Mendes is a sleeper?

Nah, I don't think so. Mendes just doesn't need to be talked about too much. What's to say? He's really-good-but-not-good-enough wrestle boxer who got demolished by his division's champ.

Elkins vs Mendes sounds like a great fight btw.
