A new bantamweight fight has been added to the inaugural UFC On FOX Sports 1 card. Urijah Faber is set to meet Yuri Alcantara according to reports, but there was no mention as to where it will be put on the card. Faber is riding a two fight win streak going into the bout, and Alcantara is looking to build off his first round knockout win over Iliard Santos at the last UFC On FX card in Brazil.

UFC On FOX Sports 1: 1 takes place in Boston on Saturday August 17 and the event will kick off the first card on FOX’s new channel Fox Sports 1. The last time the UFC was in Boston was for UFC 118: Edgar Vs Penn II at the TD Garden, and that is where this card will be as well.
