Less than 24 hours after announcing the event, the UFC has added three fights to the UFC Fight Night card in Cincinnati.

On Wednesday, the UFC added Ed Herman vs. Rafael Natal, Soa Palelei vs. Ruan Potts and Ben Wall vs. Justin Salas. It is unknown where the fights will take place on the card at this time but the main card will air live on FOX Sports 1.

The UFC Fight Night event in Cincinnati will take place on May 10 at the US Bank Arena. Tickets for the event will go on sale March 21.

Herman is coming off a decision loss to Thales Leites in November at UFC 167. The “TUF 3” runner-up is 8-6-1 in the UFC.

Like Herman, Natal is coming off a loss in November. The 31-year-old was knocked out in the first round by Tim Kennedy at the Fight for the Troops event in Kentucky.

Ridding a ten-fight winning streak in which he has finished all ten opponents by knockout, Palelei will be looking to earn his third UFC win in Cincinnati. The 36-year-old Australian’s last loss was to Daniel Cormier in 2010.

Potts is a highly touted prospect out of South Africa. The reigning EFC champ is on a three-fight winning streak and has finished his opponent in all eight of his wins.

Wall will be looking for his first UFC win against Salas. The 24-year-old Australian lost his UFC debut to Alex Garcia in December.

Coming off a first round submission loss to Thiago Tavares in November, Salas has now alternated wins and losses in his UFC career. The Colorado native is 2-2 in the UFC.

More fights are expected to announced over the coming days.
