With official confirmation of a final preliminary-card bout, the lineup for next month’s UFC 143 event is now complete with 11 fights.

The final addition to the card is a welterweight bout between Dan Stittgen (7-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) and fellow newcomer/injury replacement Stephen Thompson (5-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC).

UFC 143 takes place Feb. 4 at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. Main-card action airs live on pay-per-view while FX carries the preliminary card.
