Jose Aldo is the undisputed featherweight champion and is set to defend his belt against Anthony Pettis. After Pettis though, the featherweight picture should be a lot clearler as two additional bouts in the division were added.

A pair of key featherweight matchups have been added to July’s UFC 162 event, as former UFC lightweight champ Frankie Edgar (15-4-1 MMA, 9-4-1 UFC) faces Charles Oliveira (16-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC) and Dennis Siver (21-8 MMA, 10-5 UFC) meets Cub Swanson (19-5 MMA, 4-1 UFC).

UFC officials today announced the new matchups.
