Albert Morales (6-1-1 MMA, 0-1-1 UFC) is slated to welcome CES MMA bantamweight champion Andre Soukhamthath (11-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC) to the octagon while newcomer Cynthia Calvillo (3-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) meets “The Ultimate Fighter 23” finalist Amanda Cooper (2-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) in a women’s strawweight bout.

MMAjunkie confirmed the bookings with representatives from each matchup. The UFC 209 fight card now has a total of 12 bouts. UFC officials are expected to announce both of the new matchups shortly.

And so it begins.

*EDIT: I readily assumed it was 'scratched' as that's how UFC fight card announcements usually go 2 weeks from the event.

Thanks for the post. Fights are added.

I was wondering which 2 fights they were adding. UFC.com didn't have anything the other day and it showed an event start time of 6:30PM. With the original 10 bouts the timing didn't add up and now it does.

Not that it's a special fight or anything but Morales vs Soukhamthath should make for a good stylistic bout from what I've saw from them both. Should be contested primarily on the feet.

I was pretty sure one of those fights was gonna be a replacement fighter for herman.

Well 12 is better than 10.
