The UFC continues to finalize fights in preparation for their April shows.

A quartet of fights has been added to the list of UFC on FOX 7 preliminary bouts, all in the lightweight division. Recent Strikeforce signees Jorge Masvidal and Roger Bowling will make their UFC debuts against Tim Means and Anthony Njokuani respectively. TUF Smashes lightweight winner Norman Parke will face Jon Tuck in his first real UFC test. Undefeated prospect Myles Jury will also meet Ramsey Nijem.

In addition, a pivotal featherweight matchup between Brad Pickett and Mike Easton has been signed as well as a 145 pound meeting between Marcus Brimage, who remains undefeated in the UFC, and newcomer Conor McGregor, who currently holds titles in the featherweight and lightweight division in the Cage Warriors promotion.

UFC on FOX 7 takes place on April 20 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California and is headlined by Ben Henderson's latest UFC lightweight title defense in a unification bout against Strikeforce lightweight king Gilbert Melendez. Undefeated heavyweight sensation Daniel Cormier will also make his UFC debut against Frank Mir.

The UFC will return to Sweden for UFC on Fuel TV 9 on April 6 at the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm. Light heavyweight title contender Alexander Gustafsson will welcome longtime veteran Gegard Mousasi to the UFC in the show's main event.
