The Ultimate Fighting Championship has taken a big step towards filling out the line-up for its upcoming June 22nd event in Atlantic City, by confirming five more bouts for the card. The UFC on FX 4 event will be hosted by the Revel Casino and will be broadcast live on FX.

One of the welterweight tilts that has been added to the card will see Rich Attonito take on Rick Story. Attonito (10-5) will be looking to rebound from a stoppage loss to Jake Hecht in December, while Story (13-5) is looking to reverse a two fight losing skid, after incurring defeats at the hands of Charlie Brenneman and most recently Martin Kampmann.

Veteran Dan Miller will drop down from middleweight and will make his welterweight debut against Ricardo Funch. Miller (13-6) is coming off back-to-back losses Nate Marquardt and Rousimar Palhares, while Funch (8-3) was stopped by Mike Pyle in his last outing at UFC 142 in January.

In yet another tilt at 170 pounds, Brian Ebersole (49-14) will battle TJ Waldburger (15-6). Ebersole will be looking to extend a ten fight win streak which includes Octagon victories over Chris Lytle, Dennis Hallman and most recently Claude Patrick.

Waldburger has scored wins over Mike Stumpf and Jake Hecht after losing to Johny Hendricks last March.

Other additions to the UFC on FX 4 card include Matt Riddle (6-3) vs. welterweight Luis Ramos (19-7) and Chris Camozzi (16-5) vs. middleweight Nick Catone (9-2).

The June 22nd card will feature a five round, lightweight bout between Clay Guida and Gray Maynard in the main event.
