Lil' Heathen vs. Thugjitsu Master, altro per il Minnesot MN aggiornato al 22 Agosto
UFC on FX 5 in Minneapolis -- a fight card made possible in part by Guy Fieri -- continues to build buzz with the addition of two bouts and a change to one.

Verbal agreements are in for a scrap between two always-exciting lightweights, "Thugjitsu Master" Yves Edwards and Jeremy "Lil Heathen" Stephens.

With Louis Gaudinot out due to injury, top-ranked English flyweight Phil "Billy" Harris will take his place against Darren Uyenoyama.

Minneapolis Fight Card Bulks Up updated July 31
In the wake of the UFC's announcement of Browne vs. Bigfoot, a handful of fights have been verbally agreed to for the October 5 event.

The headlining heavyweights won't be the only big guys going to work -- heavyweight sluggers Rob Broughton and Matt Mitrione will finally meet after their original bout, slated for UFC on FOX this weekend, was scrapped due to visa red tape.

At welterweight, TUF 13's Justin "Fast Eddy" Edwards and seasoned veteran Josh "The Dentist" Neer will meet in a submission specialist vs. TKO artist match-up.

Fans of ground wars -- and the crazy brawls that sometimes take place when two grappling specialists compete -- can look forward to the lightweight bout between BJJ black belt Carlo "Neo" Prater and powerful wrestler Marcus "The Prospect" LeVesseur.

Bart Palaszewski and Diego Nunes will fight at featherweight in a bout originally booked for Indianapolis, the original host city of the FX 5 event. Both men are long-time, well-rounded veterans who favor striking whil promises an exciting mix of similar styles.

With the first UFC flyweight champion about to be crowned, the new division is moving almost as fast as the athletes who compete in it. Joining the 125-pound ranks is Darren Uyenoyama, dropping from bantamweight to meet Louis Gaudinot. Both fighters are coming off career-best performances and looking to extend their hot streaks.

Another fighter who's found success at flyweight, TUF 14 winner John Dodson, will welcome one of the world's top divisional fighters to the UFC when he takes on 14-1 Jussier Formiga.
