The card for the UFC’s return to Scotland this summer has started to build with the addition of three fights.

Scotland’s own Paul Craig (9-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) will take on Khalil Rountree (5-2 MMA, 1-2 UFC) at light heavyweight; Jack Marshman (21-6 MMA, 1-1 UFC) meets Ryan Janes (9-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) at middleweight; and Mark Godbeer (12-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) is booked to fight Justin Willis (4-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) at heavyweight. UFC officials announced the new bookings today.

The UFC’s return to Scotland, likely to be UFC Fight Night 113, takes place at The SSE Hydro in Glasgow on July 16, a Sunday. The card will air on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

Craig will be looking to rebound after the first loss of his career in March at UFC 209. There, Tyson Pedro shut him down with a first-round TKO, snapping the perfect 9-0 start to his pro career. That perfect start included a bonus-winning armbar submission of Henrique da Silva in his promotional debut this past December at UFC on FOX 22.

Khalil Rountree

Rountree, a finalist on Season 23 of “The Ultimate Fighter,” picked up his first UFC victory in February at UFC Fight Night 104 in Houston when he took out Daniel Jolly in just 52 seconds with a knockout from a brutal knee. That snapped a two-fight skid that included a decision loss to Andrew Sanchez in the “TUF 23” final and a submission setback to Pedro this past November in Australia.

Jack Marshman

Marshman, from Wales, made his UFC debut this past fall at UFC Fight Night 99 in Northern Ireland and stopped Magnus Cedenblad with a second-round TKO to run his winning streak to seven. But in February, the 27-year-old suffered his first loss in nearly three years when Thiago Santos stopped him with a spinning wheel kick at UFC Fight Night 105 in Canada.

Ryan Janes

Janes will be trying to rebound, as well, after having his eight-fight winning streak snapped by a Gerald Meerschaert armbar at UFC Fight Night 105. Prior to that, he had seven straight wins to get the call from the UFC, then won his promotional debut this past December with a decision win over Keith Berish at UFC Fight Night 102.

Mark Godbeer

England’s Godbeer picked up his first UFC win in March with a unanimous decision over Daniel Spitz at UFC 209. That got him back on track after a submission loss to Justin Ledet in Belfast this past November. The win over Spitz gave him four wins in his past five fights since a TKO loss to UFC vet Cheick Kongo at Bellator 102 in 2013.

Willis, who trains at American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose, Calif., will be making his UFC debut. He comes to the company on a four-fight winning streak, including a TKO of Juliano Coutinho this past June at WSOF 31, his major-promotion debut.

With the additions, UFC Fight Night 113 includes:

  • Paul Craig vs. Khalil Rountree
  • Ryan Janes vs. Jack Marshman
  • Mark Godbeer vs. Justin Willis
