Two more fights have been added to September's UFC Nottingham card, with Tom Watson v Brad Tavares and John Maguire v John Hathaway being confirmed.

Tom "Kong" Watson recently signed with the UFC having beaten the likes of Murilo Rua and Jack Marshman, and the Britsh middleweight, who has won 11 of his last 12 bouts, is set to do battle with former TUF competitor Tavares.

Top British welterweights Maguire and Hathaway will go toe-to-toe in a mouth-watering all-English affair at the event on September 29.

Maguire has quickly established himself as a fans' favourite with his all-action style, while Hathaway (15-1) returned after over a year's absence to take a decision win against Pascal Krauss at UFC on Fox 3 in May.
