UFC on FOX 8 has received another lightweight addition, as the promotion has announced that former TUF winner Michael Chiesa will take on Reza Madadi at the July 27th event. The card will be hosted by Seattle’s Key Arena and will be broadcast on FOX.

Chiesa (9-0) is coming off a second round, rear-naked-choke submission over Anton Kuivanen at UFC 157, after tapping out Al Iaquinta last June to win the 12th season of TUF.

Madadi (13-3) recorded a memorable, tap-out victory via a DÁrce Choke against Michael Johnson at the recent UFC on FUEL TV card in Sweden. Prior to that he dropped a split decision loss to Cristiano Marcello at UFC 153.

Earlier Tuesday UFC announced that Yves Edwards will fight fellow vet Spencer Fisher at UFC on FOX 8.
