UFC 111 is off to a great start in terms of match ups, with two championship bouts to headline the evening. Now the organization is looking to add a nice supporting cast to the March 17 event.
The casting call has already begun, as Matt Brown and Ricardo Almeida have been added to the bill, according to ESPN's "MMA Live." The bout is a welterweight showdown between two welterweights at the middle of the divisional pack.
Brown is coming off a technical knockout victory over The Ultimate Fighter winner James Wilks at UFC 105: "Couture vs. Vera." He has an unimpressive professional record (11-7), but has better results (4-1) where it counts most inside the Octagon.
This fight will be Almeida's return to the eight-walled cage after being forced out of his UFC 106 bout with Jon Fitch. "Cachorrao's" last appearance culminated with a unanimous decision victory over Kendall Grove at UFC 101: "Declaration." He holds a professional record of 11-3.
UFC 111 features a welterweight championship bout between title holder Georges St. Pierre and Dan Hardy, along with an interim title championship between heavyweights Shane Carwin and Frank Mir.
