05-Daniel-Cormier-UFC-170-w-0617-478x270The Ultimate Fighting Championship announced several bouts for different cards on Wednesday, and they have more in the works.

A bout between undefeated light heavyweight Daniel Cormier and former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante is in the works for the UFC 175 fight card on July 5, according to UFC Tonight.

Cormier (14-0) dropped down from the heavyweight division and made his 205-pound debut at UFC 170. He defeated UFC newcomer Patrick Cummins, who replaced an injured Rashad Evans, by first-round technical knockout.

Cavalcante (12-4, 1 NC) has gone 1-1 in his two fights in the UFC. The 33-year-old lost his promotional debut to Thiago Silva by knockout in June 2013. He rebounded by finishing Igor Pokrajac in his last outing at UFC Fight Night 32.

Also in the works is a welterweight match-up between Demian Maia and Mike Pierce for May 31 in Brazil.

Maia (18-6) reeled off three wins in a row after dropping down from the middleweight division to the 170-pound weight class in 2012, but has lost his two fights to Jake Shields and Rory MacDonald.

Pierce (17-6) had a four-fight winning streak snapped in his last outing against submission specialist Rousimar Palhares. He was submitted by heel hook in the early going of the opening round. He’ll hope to start a new winning streak, while Maia tries to prevent a third consecutive loss.

Neither of the match-ups has been finalized.
