A bantamweight bout between TUF 14 competitor John Albert (7-4 MMA, 1-3 UFC) and newcomer Yaotzin Meza (19-8 MMA, 0-1 UFC) has been added to UFC on FOX 8 event.

UFC on FOX 8 will be held on July 27 at KeyArena in Seattle, Washington.

Albert has a three-fight loss streak and is probably on the edge of being released from the promotion. His last fight, however, against Scott Jorgensen, that he lost via submission (rear-naked choke) in the last seconds of the first round at UFC on Fox: Henderson vs. Diaz on December 8, 2012 in Seattle, Washington, was awarded “Fight of the Night”.

Meza is a teammate of Benson Henderson at Arizona's The MMA Lab. He made his UFC debut against Chad Mendes as a replacement of Hacran Dias and was knocked out in the first round.
