Two more bouts have been set for UFC Sacramento, as Andre Fili meets Sheymon Moraes, and Gian Villante faces Mike Rodriguez.

With the UFC Sacramento main event official (it’s Germaine de Randamie vs. Aspen Ladd), the card continued to fill out on Wednesday. The latest additions? At featherweight, Andre Fili vs. Sheymon Moraes. And at light heavyweight, Gian Villante is set to take on Mike Rodriguez. The UFC revealed the bouts on the event’s official fight card.

Fili (19–6), who fights out of Sacramento, is 3-1 across his last four bouts. He bounced back from a loss to Michael Johnson last time out, when he defeated Myles Jury at UFC Phoenix. Fili’s other two wins in that span came against Artem Lobov and Dennis Bermudez.

Opponent Sheymon Moraes (11-3), meanwhile, had a two-fight win streak snapped against Sodiq Yusuff at UFC Philadelphia in March. He’d earned wins over Julio Arce and Matt Sayles prior to that.

Light heavyweights Gian Villante (17–11), who is 2-2 in his last four bouts, and Mike Rodriguez (10-3) will also clash at UFC Sacramento. Rodriguez will enter the fight off a win over Adam Milstead. 1-1 in the UFC, Rodriguez is 5-1 in his past six bouts.

UFC Sacramento (UFC Fight Night 155) takes place July 13, 2019 at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, CA.
