UFC adds Imes, Sakara to 'Bad Intentions' card

Is this a joke or is he serious?The UFC today confirmed two more bouts for UFC: 65 "Bad Intentions" on November 18 at the ARCO Arena in Sacramento, California.

Alessio Sakara (14-4) has been tapped to face Wilson Gouveia (7-4) in a light heavyweight match up. And former The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 2 finalist Brad Imes will square off against fellow heavyweight, UFC newcomer and Holland native Antoni Hardonk (4-2).

Here is how the card rounds out to date:

170 lb: Matt Hughes vs. Georges St. Pierre
Hvywt: Tim Sylvia vs. Jeff Monson
Hvywt: Frank Mir vs. Brandon Vera
205 lb.: James Irvin vs. Hector Ramirez
205 lb: Alessio Sakara vs. Wilson Gouveia
Hvywt: Brad Imes vs. Antoni Hardonk

Of course, we've all heard that Nick Diaz (13-6) will take on Graison Tibau (11-3) in a welterweight contest, which will mark the final UFC appearance for Diaz as he moves on to fight in other organizations.

If he continues to win, however, he'll probably be back sooner rather than later.

And also not yet "official," but widely known, Joe Stevenson (25-7) will go up against Dokonjonosuke Mishima (17-4-2) in the night's only lightweight battle.

But, that is only eight fights out of a nine-bout card. The final bout could be another lightweight match up ... or not.

When we hear the news on the final fight, as well as get official confirmation on the Diaz and Stevenson fights, we'll let you know.
