Ryan Bader-Vladimir Matyushenko, David Mitchell-Simeon Thoreson Added to UFC on FOX 6

January’s UFC on FOX 6 lineup just got a little more violent as the UFC has announced two more bouts for the Chicago-bound card.

According to a reliable report, Ryan Bader will battle Vladimir Matyushenko, while David Mitchell and Simeon Thoreson will also face off in earlier action.

Bader is looking to rebound from his knockout courtesy of Lyoto Machida and Matyushenko is looking to do the same thing, as he is coming off of a TKO loss to streaking light heavyweight Alexander Gustafsson. Meanwhile, Thoreson is looking for a win after being KO’d by Seth Baczynski, and Mitchell is likely fighting for his job after dropping his last two tilts.
