Brad Pickett at UFC 138Two new fights have been added to the upcoming UFC 155 card in Las Vegas including a bantamweight showdown between Brad Pickett and Eddie Wineland.

UFC officials confirmed the new fights on Monday.

Brad Pickett returns to action after picking up back-to-back wins in his last two fights, including a devastating knockout in his last trip to the Octagon.

Fighting in his home country of England, Pickett absolutely floored opponent Yves Jabouin with an uppercut that finished the fight, and gave the Brit a highlight reel knockout to boot.

He might get the chance to add another highlight to his resume when he faces former WEC champion Eddie Wineland at UFC 155.

Wineland suffered two losses in a row before coming back at UFC on FX 3 earlier this year where he blasted Scott Jorgensen with strikes to win in blistering fashion.

Now Wineland takes on Pickett in a bout with fireworks written all over it.

Another bantamweight match-up added to the upcoming UFC 155 card is a fight between Erik Perez and Byron Bloodworth.

Perez has looked nothing short of impressive in his first two fights in the Octagon with a submission victory over John Albert and a quick knockout of Ken Stone.

Perez will now face Bloodworth, who is seeking his first UFC win.

The two new bouts will be added to the upcoming year-end UFC 155 card taking place on Dec 29 in Las Vegas.
