Several bouts have been added to the August 23 UFC card in Macau, headlined by Michael Bisping and Cung Le.

The UFC's third trip to Macau is shaping up to be the best one yet, as this Fight Pass card will be featuring two bouts with divisional significance and top 10 contenders in Michael Bisping vs. Cung Le, and Tyron Woodley vs. Dong Hyun Kim. Apart from the TUF: China Featherweight finals, more bouts have been added to the card, as reported first by MMA-in-Asia.com.

Zhang Lipeng, the winner of the inaugural season of the Ultimate Fighter: China will be dropping down to lightweight to face the undefeated Brendan O'Reilly from TUF: Canada vs. Australia.

Wang Sai, who some felt should've gotten the decision over Lipeng when they fought in the finale, will be facing Danny Mitchell. Wang is still training with Mike Swick at AKA Thailand, and both men will be looking to record their first official win in the Octagon.

Also on the line up, Hong Kong's adopted hero and a double black belt in BJJ and Judo finally has an opponent. Alberto Mina's much anticipated UFC debut will happen against TUF: Nations vet Sheldon Westcott who will be dropping down from 185 lbs.

Lastly, Anying Wang takes on a newly signed undefeated wrestler in Colby Covington, while Singaporean Royston Wee faces Yao Zhikui from TUF: China.

No opponent has been announced for Taiwan's Rocky Lee, who was previously announced by Mark Fischer to be on the card, while Hong Kong-based Muay Thai champ Vuyisile Colossa is confirmed to be off the Macau card after a contract issue with ONE FC. Sources tell us that Colossa is likely to wait until his current contract with the Asian promotion expires in a couple of months, before trying to renegotiate for a new deal.

Check out the partial line up so far.
