The UFC has announced that a bout between former TUF winners, Eddie Gordon and Antonio Carlos Jr., has been added to its June 27th card in Hollywood, Florida. The upcoming event, which will also feature the finale of TUF Brazil 4, will be hosted by the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

Gordon (7-3) is looking to get back on track, as the TUF 19 winner has dropped consecutive bouts to Chris Dempsey and Josh Samman. The “Truck” has gone 1-2 in official UFC action to date.

Carlos Jr. (4-1), meanwhile, is coming off his first pro defeat, as the TUF Brazil 3 winner was decisioned by Patrick Cummins in his last outing. “Cara de Sapato” competed at heavyweight during TUF, and the upcoming bout will take place at 185.

UFC FN 70 will be headlined by a welterweight fight between Rick Story and Erick Silva.
