Arlovski vs Browne, Moraga vs Benavidez added to UFC 187

UFC 187 continues to come together, and what a card it is.

On Wednesday it was announced that Jon Jones would defend the light heavyweight title against Anthony Johnson at the top of the card, with a co-main event between middleweight champion Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort. If those weren't enough, Donald Cerrone will stake his seven-fight win streak against Khabib Nurmagomedov in a lightweight title eliminator.

Now the other two fights have been officially announced for the May 23 pay-per-view: A heavyweight title fight between former teammates Andrei Arlovski and Travis Browne has been booked, as well as a flyweight battle between Joseph Benavidez and John Moraga.

UFC 187 will take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The former heavyweight champion Arlovski (23-10-1) has won four fights in a row, including both of his fights in his return to the UFC. In his last fight, the 36-year old Arlovski showed that he still has the explosive power that came to define his career by scoring a first-round knockout of the Brazilian Antonio Silva.

Browne (17-2-1) is coming off of an impressive TKO victory over Brendan Schaub at UFC 181. For his camp leading up to the fight, Browne switched camps from Jackson-Winkeljohn's in New Mexico to the Glendale Fight Club in Southern California.

Benavidez is riding a two fight win streak, having defeated Tim Elliott and Dustin Ortiz respectively. The 30-year old Team Alpha Male fighter holds a 21-4 pro record.

Meanwhile his counterpart, Moraga, has rattled off back-to-back victories after losing in a bout against John Dodson last July.
