The UFC recently announced their first trip to Albuquerque, N.M., featuring a main event of Benson Henderson and Rustam Khabilov.

The rest of the card is now starting to take shape as UFC officials announced the addition of two more fights for the event.

In a battle of former flyweight title challengers, John Dodson meets John Moraga. The pair met previously in 2010 with Dodson winning by decision.

Dodson is arguably the biggest name and the best fighter in the division, other than the champion, Demetrious Johnson. Dodson last fought in October at UFC 166 and rebounded from a loss to Johnson with a first-round knockout of Darrell Montague. Dodson was scheduled to fight in December, but an injury forced him off of the card.

Moraga will also be looking to continue to build on his most recent victory after also losing to Johnson previously. Moraga defeated Dustin Ortiz via decision in January at UFC Fight Night 35.

Also announced for the event is a bantamweight bout between Sergio Pettis and Yaotzin Meza.

Pettis is coming off the first loss of his career. The younger of the Pettis brothers fell victim to an Alex Caceres choke at the very end of a great fight in January at UFC on Fox 10.

Meza, meanwhile, is also coming off a loss. He dropped a decision to Chico Camus on the same card as Pettis in Chicago.

Both fights go down June 7 at the Tingley Colliseum in Albuquerque.
