UFC 164 gets Romero-Brunson, Cedenblad-Hamman

Two middleweight bouts seem destined for UFC 164 in Milwaukee, WI. Yoel Romero will come off of an impressive win over Clifford Starks to face Derek Brunson, while Magnus Cedenblad looks for his first UFC win against Jared Hamman. Hamman looks to snap a two fight skid against Cedenblad, and Brunson, fresh off of a weigh-in day scratch from UFC on Fuel TV 10, looks to finally capitalize off of the momentum of his UFC 155 win over Chris Leben.
