Leben vs. Craig, Melancon vs. Baczynski added to UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman

Chris LebenUFC officials have announced two more fights for the UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman that’s set to take place on July 6 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

A middleweight bout between Chris Leben and Andrew Craig is set to take place. Also, a welterweight bout between Brian Melacon vs. Seth Baczynski has also been added to the card.

Leben (22-9) is coming off a unanimous decision loss against Derek Brunson at UFC 155 in December. It was the first fight for Leben since 2011 after serving a one year suspension for a failed drug test.

Craig (8-1) is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Ronny Markes at the UFC on FX 7 event in January. Craig had won two UFC fights going into the bout and will look to rebound with a win over a tough UFC veteran.

Melancon (6-2) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Felipe Portela in his last Strikeforce fight. Melancon has won three of his last four fights and will be looking to make a splash against UFC veteran Baczynski.

Baczynski (18-9) is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Mike Pierce in his last bout at UFC on FX 6. Baczynski was riding a six fight winning streak going into that fight.

UFC 162 will be headlined by the UFC middleweight title fight between longtime champion Anderson Silva and challenger Chris Weidman.
