UFC 186: "Dillashaw vs. Barao 2," which is set to go down inside Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, on April 25, 2015, just go a bit more flavor as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has added several lower-weight bouts to the pay-per-view (PPV) event.

Abel Trujillo looks to get back on the winning track when he takes on hometown favorite John Makdessi in a intriguing lightweight bout.

Makdessi, who also looks to start a new win streak of his own, was last seen in action at UFC 169 where he came up short on the judges' scorecards against Alan Patrick, while "Killa" had his streak snapped by Tony Ferguson at UFC 181 last December.

In bantamweight action, undefeated (17-0, 1-0 UFC) sensation Thomas Almeida looks to keep his mint stat sheet intact as he battles another local boy in Yves Jabouin.

Jabouin is coming off a decision victory over Mike Easton at UFC 174 last June, while Almeida made an impressive Octagon debut at UFC Fight Night 56 by outscoring Tim Gorman.

UFC 186 will feature a much-anticipated rematch between current 135-pound champ T.J. Dillashaw and former division kingpin, Renan Barao. In the co-main event, Rory MacDonald looks to, yet again, make a case for his shot at the welterweight strap when he collides with heavy-handed Hector Lombard.

Also on the PPV card, former light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson makes his return to the eight-walled cage to battle Fabio Maldonado, while Michael Bisping takes on C.B. Dollaway in middleweight action.
