The UFC on FUEL TV fight card continues to take shape as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently made a pair of bouts official for its network telecast on Feb. 15, 2012, live from Omaha Civic Auditorium in Omaha, Nebraska.

UFC.com has it:

T.J. Dillashaw will jump from the finals of last season's Ultimate Fighter into the UFC's bantamweight division by taking on the crafty Walel Watson on the FUEL TV card.

Also at that event, two great grapplers will battle it out as TUF 12 winner Jonathan Brookins takes on BJJ black belt Vagner Rocha. Rocha was originally scheduled to face Mike Brown in January; however Brown was injured and forced to withdraw from that event.

Dillashaw (4-1) was pasted by John Dodson at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 14 Finale last December while "The Gazelle" (9-3) had trouble convincing the judges he was better than Yves Jabouin at UFC 140 in Toronto.

Brookins (12-4) came up empty against Erick Koch at UFC Fight Night 25 back in September, the same place that saw "Ceara" (7-2) choke out TUF castaway Cody McKenzie.

Here is the current UFC on FUEL TV fight card and line-up:

Main Event:

170 lbs.: Diego Sanchez vs. Jake Ellenberger

265 lbs.: Stefan Struve vs. Dave Herman
