The UFC on FX 3 card is now official with 12 ratified contests, promotion officials announced Saturday.

Three of the announced bouts have already been added to the main draw, which airs live on FX. Headlining the June 8 event will be a flyweight tournament rematch between Demetrious Johnson and Ian McCall. Additionally, welterweights Charlie Brenneman and Erick Silva(pictured) will square off at the BankAtlantic Center in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., as will veterans Mike Pyle and Josh Neer.

Bout order has not yet been revealed, but the remaining portion of the bill will feature a trio of welterweight contests pitting Seth Baczynski against Lance Benoist, Jake Hecht against Sean Pierson and Mike Pierce against Carlos Eduardo Rocha.

Meanwhile, bantamweights Dustin Pague and Scott Jorgensen will meet Jared Papazian and Eddie Wineland, respectively. Also showcased will be a featherweight clash between Leonard Garcia and Matt Grice, as well as a middleweight confrontation between Caio Magalhaes and Buddy Roberts. Two lightweight pairings round out the card, as Tim Means faces Justin Salas and Bernardo Magalhaes meets Henry Martinez.

Also known as the Harley-Davison Hometown Throwdown, UFC on FX 3 has featured an unusual amount of fan interaction. The event’s location was partially determined by fan voting, and the UFC faithful may currently vote for one swing bout to make the main draw broadcast at HometownThrowdown.UFC.com.
