The UFC’s return to Pittsburgh in February is starting to fill up quick, as the UFC announced seven new fights for the card on Tuesday night.

The UFC Fight Night 82 event takes place from the Consol Energy Center on Feb. 21, airing live on Fox Sports 1. The UFC on Tuesday added the following matchups:

-Derek Brunson vs. Roan Carneiro (Middleweight)
-Joe Riggs vs. Chris Camozzi (Middleweight)
-Trevor Smith vs. Leonardo Augusto Guimaraes (Middleweight)
-Shane Campbell vs. James Krause (Lightweight)
-Brandon Thatch vs. Siyar Bahadurzada (Welterweight)
-Anthony Hamilton vs. Shamil Abdurakhimov (Heavyweight)
-Sean Strickland vs. Alex Garcia (Welterweight)

Those fights join the previously announced Cody Garbrandt vs. John Lineker and Sarah Moras vs. Lauren Murphy bouts, though a main event is not yet set for the card. It’s the second Sunday night event in as many months, and brings the UFC back to Pittsburgh for the first time in four and a half years.
