***image1***Two new fights have been added to the UFC on Fuel 4 event, as reports that light heavyweights Tom DeBlass and Nick Penner will square off on the card, while Rafael Natal revealed on Twitter Wednesday that he’s meeting Andrew Craig on the card.

The July 11 event is expected to come to the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., headlined by a middleweight bout between Mark Munoz and Chris Weidman.

DeBlass made his UFC debut on short notice last month, taking on Cyrille Diabate at UFC on Fuel 2 in Stockholm, Sweden. The 30-year-old won his first seven fights, but dropped a decision to Diabate on 12 day’s notice. Penner took on Anthony Perosh in his organizational debut back in March, losing by TKO at the end of the first round. That defeat was just the second of his career, and snapped an eight fight winning streak.

After suffering a decision loss and fighting to a draw in his first two fights in the UFC, Natal has since picked up consecutive wins inside the Octagon. Most recently, he defeated Michael Kuiper by decision at UFC 143 in February. Craig made an impressive debut in March at UFC on FX 3, keeping his undefeated record intact with a decision win over Kyle Noke.
