As UFC Fight Night Hidalgo begins to fill in, another two bouts have just been added to the lineup between Roan Carneiro and Kenny Robertson and a scrap between Augusto Montano and Belal Muhammed.

Roan Carneiro (20-10) is coming off of a knockout loss to top middleweight Derek Brunson, which snapped a 6 fight winning streak for the Brazilian. He previously fought for the UFC for 5 fights until being cut in 2008. He went on to win 7 out of his 8 fights in other promotions and the UFC gave him another chance. In his return to the UFC he took on Mark Munoz and defeated him with ease in the first round via rear naked choke.

Robertson (15-4) is also coming off of a loss against Ben Saunders via split decision about a year ago. The loss was a huge setback for him because since his first fight in the UFC back in 2011 he was on the biggest winning streak of his career at 3 consecutive wins. Both fighters will be looking to bounce back come September 17th and avoid dropping two consecutive losses in a row.

Augusto Montano (15-2) is returning from a one year suspension due to a failed drug test. Montano is a mexican fighter who had a lot of hype coming into his UFC debut, riding a 5 fight win streak with a professional record of 14-1 with his only loss respectively being against Sam Alvey. In his debut he finished Chris Heatherly due to knees. In his second fight under the promotion he had a very unimpressive performance against Cathal Pendred, as well as failing his post fight drug test.

Belal Muhammed (9-1) made a name for himself with a highly impressive UFC debut a few weeks ago against Alan Jouban that resulted in fight of the night. Muhammed put his undefeated record on the line on short notice to get his chance in the UFC and he put on the type of performance that gained him a ton of fans. He is the former Titan FC champion and has a lot of hype going into his next bout.
