The UFC  announced two additional matchups for the evening's preliminary card, including a previously unreported featherweight bout of Raphael Assuncao vs. Manny Gamburyan.

Additionally, a matchup previously reported by MMAjunkie.com, Luiz Cane vs. Karlos Vemola, was also confirmed for the evening's preliminary portion.

Assuncao makes his UFC debut after a five-fight stint for the company's now-shuttered sister-promotion, the WEC. Gamburyan returns to the UFC after dropping to featherweight and racking up a 3-1 record in the WEC.

UFC 128 takes place March 19 at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., and features a light-heavyweight headliner between champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua and former champ Rashad Evans.

Lets go Hafael!!!!!

 Great fight I'd give Manny a slight edge.

This card is looking sick, so glad the UFC is back to my hood :-D Phone Post

Raphael trains here in Atl with his brother Junior at Ascension MMA , They have several undefeated fighters to train with including the lima brothers , Raphael should have this.

War Manvel!

My brother is gonna bring the W home.

 Raphael is one of the best in the world at 145. Great matchup

Raphael wins via being more well rounded. He is a great striker and a world class BJJ black belt. His wrestling isn't bad either.

Looking forward to it
