Norifumi Kid Yamamoto at UFC 126

Now that the first UFC on Fox main event is in the can – UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez will defend his belt from No. 1 contender Junior Dos Santos – the rest of the fight card is filling up fast.

The UFC on Tuesday announced that popular Japanese bantamweight Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto and new UFC signee Darren Uyenoyama have agreed to square off as part of the Nov. 12 undercard in Anaheim, Calif.

Yamamoto (18-4) was originally slated to face Damacio Page at UFC 135 in Denver, but the bout fell apart due to injuries. He will instead return at UFC on Fox 1.

Yamamoto is in desperate need of a victory after losing three of his last four bouts, including a decision loss to Demetrious Johnson in Yamamoto’s Octagon debut at UFC 126 earlier this year.

A Strikeforce veteran, Uyenoyama (6-3) has fought his last couple bouts in Japan under the DEEP and Shooto banners. He is coming off of a second-round TKO victory over Shuichiro Katsumura.

The only bout scheduled to air live on the UFC on Fox event is the five-round title fight between Velasquez and Dos Santos. It is currently unclear where the undercard bouts will be broadcast, although the UFC can always fallback on its Facebook page to stream the fights.
