A bantamweight bout has just been added to the fast growing UFC 148 card in the form of Renan Barao vs. Jeff Hougland.

UFC officials just confirmed the fight moments ago.

Barao and Hougland join the likes of Franklin vs. Le and Bisping vs. Boetsch who have all been added to the card in the past 24-hours.

UFC 148 is expected to go down on July 7 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV.

Renan Barao is being promoted by the UFC as the fighter with the longest unbeaten streak in the sport, 31 straight fights. He last saw action at UFC 143 taking out former title challenger Scott Jorgensen via decision.

Hougland also brings an impressive win-streak into the match. Having not tasted defeat since 2003, he is riding high on a nine-fight win streak. He last saw action making his UFC debut last July in a bout he won via unanimous decision against Donny Walker.
