The UFC announced Thursday that three new UFC Fight Night 24 undercard bouts have been added to the Facebook stream that immediately precedes the main draw on Spike TV.

The stream now contains a heavyweight affair pitting Sean McCorkle against Christian Morecraft, a bantamweight showdown featuring Michael McDonald and Edwin Figueroa and a welterweight scrap showcasing John Hathaway (Pictured) and Kris McCray.

The trio of fights joins a featherweight contest between Alex Caceres and Mackens Semerzier, as well as a heavyweight tilt between Jon Madsen and Mike Russow, making five total bouts scheduled for the stream.

UFC Fight Night 24 goes down March 26 from KeyArena in Seattle, and will be headlined by a pivotal light heavyweight confrontation as blue-chip prospect Phil Davis locks horns with durable Pride Fighting Championships veteran Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.

Also scheduled for the UFC's Washington debut is a welterweight bout between two heavy-handed strikers, as Anthony Johnson returns from injury to meet former 170-pound title challenger Dan Hardy in the evening's co-main event.

Rounding out the main draw will be a 170-pound affair featuring two “Ultimate Fighter” alumni, as Season 7 winner Amir Sadollah butts heads with Season 9 runner-up Demarques Johnson. Opening the evening will be a featherweight rematch between heavy-hitters, as Korean import Chan Sung Jung and Greg Jackson product Leonard Garcia square off once again.
