UFC 132 Updated Card: Dominick Cruz Vs. Urijah Faber

A few updates have been made regarding the fight card of 'UFC 132: Cruz vs. Faber'. Abiding by recent tradition, the UFC has declared the entire undercard available to the general public. Two fights -- Melvin Guillard vs. Shane Roller and George Sotiropoulos vs. Rafael dos Anjos -- will be broadcast live on SPIKE immediately prior to the beginning of the main event. Likewise, the remaining four preliminary fights will be streamed live on the UFC's Facebook page.

Also, a bantamweight bout between Jeff Hougland and Donny Walker has been inserted into undercard as a late addition. The two fighters will both be making their debut under the Zuffa banner.

UFC 132 is scheduled to be headlined by a highly-anticipated rematch between champion Dominick Cruz and challenger Urijah Faber for the UFC Bantamweight title. The two previously fought at featherweight in 2007, with Faber securing the victory early in the first round via guillotine choke. The loss is the only blemish on Cruz's otherwise perfect 17-1 record.

Featured on the main card is an middleweight contest between Wanderlei Silva and Chris Leben, a welterweight title-eliminator between Carlos Condit and Dong Hyun Kim, and a light heavyweight scrum between Tito Ortiz and Ryan Bader. A grizzled veteran of the sport, the controversial "Huntington Beach Bad Boy" has made recent headlines claiming that the bout may be one of his last.

In local news, Phoenix resident Aaron Simpson is scheduled to make his second UFC showing of 2011, fighting 'The Ultimate Fighter 11' contestant Brad Tavares on the undercard. Simpson was first scheduled to face Jason Miller, but was presented a new opponent once Miller accepted next season's vacant 'TUF' coaching position. Earlier this year 'A-Train' rebounded from a devastating string of injuries, and the first two losses of his career, to thoroughly defeat middleweight Mario Miranda via unanimous decision.

UFC 132 will be held July 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main card will be available for purchase on pay-per-view.
