New, comments

Dana White is finally starting to round out the rest of the field for "UFC 60: Hughes vs. Gracie" on May 27.

Fan faDiego added to UFC 60 cardvorite and The Ultimate Fighter season one middleweight champion Diego Sanchez will fight John Alessio in a welterweight contest. Remember, Sanchez and Alessio were supposed to fight in March, but Diego had to pull out of the match at the last minute because of a bad virus.

Mike Swick will also have his hands full with hard-hitting Joe Riggs. Swick is on a tear, winning his last three fights consecutively, and nine overall. Riggs will most likely be bigger and more comfortable at 185 pounds after having a tough time at welterweight.

So, to date, here is the "UFC 60: Hughes vs. Gracie" fight card:

Matt Hughes vs. Royce Gracie
Brandon Vera vs. Assuerio Silva
Joe Riggs vs. Mike Swick
Diego Sanchez vs John Alessio
