SINGAPORE - Mixed martial arts (MMA) fans have more to rejoice over as the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) added another bout on Monday (May 8) to the already stacked Singapore fight card.

Chinese veteran Li "The Leech" Jing Liang (12-4-0) will face off against Canadian striker Jonathan "The French Spider" Meunier (8-1-0) in the welterweight category on June 17 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Li is the second Chinese UFC fighter to join the Singapore fight card, after "The Dongbei Tiger" Wang Guan (19-1-1), who will be fighting Alex "Bruce Leeroy" Caceres (12-10-0) in the UFC's featherweight division.

The latest addition would mean that 11 confirmed bouts will take place as UFC returns to Singapore after its first live event here in 2014.
