There will be a significant British flavour to the UFC on Fuel 4 card after it was confirmed to ESPN that Vaughan Lee has verbally agreed to fight TJ Dillashaw.

The July 11 event is currently expected to feature a middleweight fight between Mark Munoz and Chris Weidman in San Jose, California.

Also scheduled for the event is England's Paul Taylor v Anthony Njokuani in the lightweight division. That bout has been made for a second time after Taylor was forced out of their first battle due to a car crash.

Now British bantamweight Vaughan Lee has been added to the card against TUF 14 finalist Dillashaw. Lee is coming off a superb win over Norifumi Yamamoto at UFC 144, which saw him win Submission of the Night.
