UFC Lightweight Rafael dos Anjos

With the recent addition of the lightweight scrap between Rafael dos Anjos (Pictured) and Mark Bocek, a handful of bouts have now been announced for UFC 154.

To date, five fights have been confirmed for the November 17th bash. However, the co-main event with Martin Kampmann and Johny Hendricks, as well as the featured attraction between interim welterweight champ Carlos Condit and 170-pound king Georges St-Pierre are all but a done deal.

Once those two tangos are made official, the show could certainly become one of the most anticipated of the year.

Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada hosts the festivities.

The main card airs live on pay-per-view beginning at 10PM ET/7PM PT.

Here are the athletes expected to perform up north:

Rodrigo Damm vs. Antonio Carvalho

Rafael dos Anjos vs. Mark Bocek

Pablo Garza vs. Mark Hominick

Francis Carmont vs. Tom Lawlor

Martin Kampmann and Johny Hendricks*

Carlos Condit (UFC interim welterweight champion) vs. Georges St-Pierre (UFC welterweight champion)*

* – Not yet confirmed
