By FCF Staff

The line-up for UFC 187 continues to fill out, as the promotion has announced that Justin Scoggins will fight Josh Sampo, and that Rose Namajunas will battle Nina Ansaroff at the May 23rd card.

Scoggins (9-2) is looking to rebound from consecutive, defeats to flyweight contenders Dustin Ortiz and John Moraga, after winning nine straight.

Sampo (11-4) is coming off losses to Zach Makovsky and Patrick Holohan, which snapped his five fight winning streak.

Namajunas (2-2), meanwhile, will be fighting for the first time since the TUF 20 Finale in December, when she was tapped out by strawweight champ, Carla Esparza.

Ansaroff (6-4) is also looking to get back on track, as she was decisioned by Juliana de Lima Carneiro in November.

UFC 187 will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, and will feature light-heavyweight champ Jon Jones taking on Anthony Johnson. The card will also see middleweight champion Chris Weidman take on Vitor Belfort.
