Following the news that Paul Felder and Dan Hooker would headline the UFC’s return to Auckland on February 23, another three fights have been added to the card.

Light heavyweight Tyson Pedro features as he returns to action for the first time since his TKO defeat to Mauricio Rua last year against Vinicius Moreira.

Pedro has lost three of his last four bouts after entering the promotion as an unbeaten prospect. A win against Moreira — loser of his last three outings — would signal the Aussie’s first win in nearly two years.

Another Aussie in Jake Matthews will look to make it two wins in a row when he faces Emil Meek in a welterweight bout. The 25-year-old was previously on a three-fight winning streak until he was submitted by Anthony Rocco Martin in December last year. He would bounce back with a conservative unanimous decision win over Rostem Akman at UFC 243 last month.

Meek, meanwhile, is on a two-fight losing streak and hasn’t fought since getting outpointed by Bartosz Fabinski in July 2018. His loss before that was a unanimous decision defeat to current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman.

Lastly, Ben Sosoli looks to get his first UFC win when he meets Marcos Rogerio de Lima. Sosoli made his debut in a now-overturned decision defeat to Greg Hardy last month.

Rogerio de Lima, on the other hand, has been alternating between wins and losses since 2015. His last outing was a submission defeat to Stefan Struve.
