Fight Card Notes:

The Ultimate Fighting Championship has added three more fights to the card for the February event in Halifax, including the headlining fight.

Heavyweights Junior Dos Santos and Stefan Struve will square off for the second time in their careers when UFC Fight Night 105 hits the Scotiabank Centre on Feb. 19.

The two met in 2009 at UFC 95, Dos Santos came out with a knockout victory in the first round.

Dos Santos (18-4, fighting out of Brazil) owns 13 wins by knockout and one by submission. He held the heavyweight champion belt for 413 days beginning in Nov. 2011.

Dos Santos is coming off a unanimous decision win over Ben Rothwell in April.

Struve (32-8, fighting out of The Netherlands) has won seven of his last 10 bouts.

He is coming off a second-round submission over Daniel Omielanczuk at UFC 204 in October.

The other two fights announced Wednesday include Nordine Taleb and Santiago Ponzinibbio at welterweight with Reginaldo Vieira facing Aiemann Zahabi at bantamweight in Zahabi’s UFC debut.

The three previously announced fights include Elias Theodorou and Cezar Ferreira at middleweight, Jack Marshman and Thiago Santos in the same weight class, along with Alessandro Ricci and Alvaro Herrera at lightweight.

Additional bouts for the event will be announced in the coming days and weeks, according to a UFC news release.

This will be the 23rd UFC event in Canada—and second in Halifax. More than 350,000 fans in total have visited Canadian UFC events.
