UFC 194 WAS already shaping up to be one of the best UFC cards in recent memory, but the organisation aren’t finished stacking the bill just yet.

Two more bouts have been confirmed for the 12 December event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, which will be headlined by the featherweight title unification bout between reigning champion Jose Aldo and interim title-holder Conor McGregor.

Urijah Faber — who’s coaching against McGregor on the latest season of The Ultimate Fighter, which premieres on BT Sport 2 at 4am Irish time this Thursday — will return to bantamweight for a meeting with the very under-rated Frankie Saenz.

Meanwhile, Max Holloway will be aiming to secure an eighth win on the trot since his 2013 loss to McGregor when he continues his pursuit of the number one contender spot in the featherweight division with a bout against Jeremy Stephens.

With twelve bouts now on the UFC 194 card, which also features a middleweight title tussle between champion Chris Weidman and challenger Luke Rockhold, here’s the full line-up…

Jose Aldo vs. Conor McGregor
Chris Weidman vs. Luke Rockhold
Yoel Romero vs. Ronaldo Souza
Max Holloway vs. Jeremy Stephens
Gunnar Nelson vs. Demian Maia
Tecia Torres vs. Michelle Waterson
Urijah Faber vs. Frankie Saenz
Warlley Alves vs. Colby Covington
Marcio Alexandre Jr. vs. Court McGee
John Makdessi vs. Yancy Medeiros
Kevin Lee vs. Leonardo Santos
Magomed Mustafaev vs. Joe Proctor
