Raphael Assuncao vs. Manny Gamburyan at UFC 128 in Newark

source: mmajunkie.com

The UFC  announced two additional matchups for the evening's preliminary card, including a previously unreported featherweight bout of Raphael Assuncao vs. Manny Gamburyan.

Additionally, a matchup previously reported by MMAjunkie.com, Luiz Cane vs. Karlos Vemola, was also confirmed for the evening's preliminary portion.

Assuncao makes his UFC debut after a five-fight stint for the company's now-shuttered sister-promotion, the WEC. Gamburyan returns to the UFC after dropping to featherweight and racking up a 3-1 record in the WEC.

UFC 128 takes place March 19 at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., and features a light-heavyweight headliner between champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua and former champ Rashad Evans.

 Raphael is one of the best in the world at 145. Great matchup Raphael wins via being more well rounded. He is a great striker and a world class BJJ black belt. His wrestling isn't bad either. Looking forward to it
