One more fight appears to be on tap for UFC on Fuel 10: Nogueira vs. Werdum in Fortaleza, Brazil. Tatame reports that Brazilian bantamweight Raphael Assuncao will fight England's Vaughan Lee on June 8th.

Assuncao is the #6 ranked bantamweight in the UFC's official rankings page.

UFC exec says English TV deal nearly done, teases launch of weekly magazine show
For years, UFC President Dana White has pinned the potential for U.K. expansion on key factor: the "right" TV deal. Now, it seems, the company may finally be on the verge of signing such a contract.

"So we've worked with a TV partner. We're very close to having a deal."
