The UFC on FOX 8 card continues to take shape as two more fights were added on Tuesday, FOXSports.com has learned.

Both lightweight fights, the Seattle card scheduled for July 27 will feature a clash between Reza Madadi and Ultimate Fighter Season 15 winner Michael Chiesa along with a bout between Spencer Fisher and Yves Edwards.

Madadi and Chiesa will be entering the Octagon on the heels of recent wins. Madadi defeated Michael Johnson by third-round submission at UFC on FUEL TV in Sweden on April 6, while Chiesa remains undefeated after securing a second-round submission over Anton Kuivanen at UFC 157 in February.

Fisher vs. Edwards is very much a battle of redemption.

At age 36, UFC veteran Spencer Fisher is looking to get back in the win column after a three-fight losing streak. His last win came in 2010 over Curt Warburton at UFC 120.

Also 36, Yves Edwards seeks victory after a tough split decision loss to Isaac Vallie-Flagg at UFC 156 in February.

The UFC announced last week that Germaine de Randamie would face Julie Kedzie at UFC on FOX 8.

The card is also scheduled to include Jake Ellenberger vs. Rory MacDonald; Robbie Lawler vs. Tarec Saffiedine; Mac Danzig vs. Melvin Guillard; Danny Castillo vs. Bobby Green.

UFC president Dana White said last week that a headliner for the card is expected to be announced shortly.
