Mike Swick at UFC Fight Night 12The UFC on Fox 4 fight card got a big boost on Tuesday with UFC officials confirming verbal agreements are in place for four new bouts for the Aug. 4 event in Los Angeles.

Inaugural Ultimate Fighter alum Mike Swick (14-4) will be seeing his first action in the Octagon in more than two-and-a-half years, having sat on the sideline with injuries and a serious health condition. He’ll square off with fellow TUF alum in Season 9’s DaMarques Johnson (15-10).

Josh Grispi (14-3) will also be making his return after more than a year out of action. He’ll be looking to bounce back from back-to-back losses when he steps in the Octagon with Pablo Garza. Garza (13-3) is also coming off of two consecutive defeats after winning his first two UFC bouts.

In the featherweight division, Nam Phan (17-10) takes on Cole Miller (18-6), while Manny Gamburyan (11-7) faces Michihiro Omigawa (13-11-1).

UFC middleweight contender Brian Stann welcomes former Bellator champion Hector Lombard to the Octagon in the UFC on Fox 4 main event at the Staples Center.
