The August 20th, UFC 202 card has picked up two big fights, as the promotion has announced that Anthony Johnson – Glover Teixeira and Donald Cerrone – Rick Story has been added to the card.

Teixeira and Johnson were scheduled to fight at UFC on FOX 20, July 23rd, but the latter withdrew due to personal reasons. Teixeira (25-4) is coming off a KO win over Rashad Evans, while Johnson (21-5) stopped Ryan Bader in his last bout.

Cerrone (30-7) continues to fight at welterweight, as the lightweight contender is coming off a stoppage victory over Patrick Cote earlier this month.

Story (19-8) returned to action for the first time since 2014 this past May, and earned a unanimous decision win over Tarec Saffiedine.

UFC 202 will take place in Las Vegas and will feature Conor McGregor – Nate Diaz II in the headliner.
