The UFC has confirmed a trio of bouts for later this year, led by recently beaten flyweight tournament semi-finalist Ian McCall against John Moraga.

McCall was defeated by Demetrious Johnson in a semi-final clash that needed six rounds to separate the fighters. Now McCall will attempt to rebuild his career at UFC on Fox 4 - headlined by Mauricio Shogun Rua v Brandon Vera on August 4.

Moraga will make his UFC debut, hoping to improve his 10-1 MMA record.

Also announced are two bouts for UFC 151, which is headlined by Jon Jones v Dan Henderson. The card also features a co-main event between Josh Koscheck and Jake Ellenberger.

Lightweights Henry Martinez and Daron Cruickshank are set for an explosive encounter, while flyweights John Lineker and Yasuhiro Urushitani will also lock horns.
