UFC fight bookings roundup: 6/17-6/24


The UFC has booked a bunch of fights over the last few days, and here's a rundown of what they put together.

Since the UFC has decided to produce 50+ events in 2014, there is a remarkable amount of fighter signings and new match-ups being set up throughout any given week. Many of these new signings are for match-ups that take place on the undercard, or on the Fight Pass portion of a PPV, so we are going to continue with a new weekly (or bi-weekly if needed) series of articles where we take a brief look at each and every bout booked by the promotion in one place.

UFC Fight Night: Swanson vs. Stephens

A flyweight match-up between Shane Howell and Ray Borg is scheduled to take place on the preliminary portion of the UFC's second fight card on June 28. The announcement that Howell would replace the injured Ryan Benoit came less than a week ago.
