The UFC’s first card in the Philippines continues to build, as the promotion has announced that Gegard Mousasi will fight Costa Philippou, and that Hyun Gyu Lim will take on Neil Magny.

The bouts will be part of UFC Fight Night 66, which will take place on May 16th in Manila.

Mousasi (36-5-2) is looking to build on the stoppage loss he scored over Dan Henderson in January, while Philippou (13-4) hasn’t fought since he KO’d Lorenz Larkin in May, 2014.

Mousasi is currently ranked #7 in the UFC’s 185 division and Philippou is positioned at #12.

The welterweight Magny (14-3) is riding a six fight winning streak, and is coming off a submission win over Kiichi Kunimoto in February.

Lim (13-4-1) hasn’t fought since September when he knocked out Takenori Sato.

UFC FN 66 will feature a featherweight bout between Frankie Edgar and Urijah Faber in the main event.
