The UFC on FUEL TV 3 fight card, scheduled to take place on May 15, 2012, from the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia, is quickly filling out.

The promotion recently announced the addition of three more contests to the cable broadcasted event, including Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 7 winner Amir Sadollah taking on Jorge Lopez in a welterweight war.

Also booked for the card is a lightweight battle pitting the returning Aaron Riley, who had previously had his jaw broken by Anthony Ferguson, against Cody McKenzie, who is hanging on to his job by a thread after back-to-back submission losses.

Finally, a middleweight tilt is set for the card, as Dongi Yang will try to rebound from his recent loss to Court McGee against Brad Tavares, who is also trying to erase his first career defeat, which he suffered at the hands of Aaron Simpson in July of last year.

Here's how the UFC on FUEL TV 3 fight card looks with these additions:

Main Event:

155 lbs.: Donald Cerrone vs. Yves Edwards
