The UFC announced the addition of two more fights to the upcoming event in Atlantic City. Those fights are David Branch vs Thiago Santos and Corey Anderson vs Patrick Cummins.

Branch originally had a brief stint in the UFC before finding more success in other organizations. He would become a dual-weight WSOF champion, and ran off 10-straight wins. He returned to the UFC at UFC 211, where he beat Krzysztof Jotko by decision. Branch would pick up his first loss in over five years in his last fight when he lost to Luke Rockhold.

Santos is a fighter from Brazil with a 9-4 UFC record. The devastating striker has won his last four fights in a row. He defeated Anthony Smith by TKO in his last fight.

Corey Anderson won the 19th season of the Ultimate Fighter. The wrestler would compile a 6-4 record in the UFC but has been on a skid as of late. He has lost 3 out of his last 4 fights including his last two fights which were to Jimi Manuwa and Ovince St Preux.

Cummings has a 6-4 record in the UFC and has won his last two fights, which were over Jan Blachowicz and Gian Villante.

The fights will take place on April 21st in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
