The UFC announced a ton of fights on Tuesday night, so let's get right to it.

-- Benson Henderson will defend his belt in Milwaukee at the end of August against T.J. Grant at UFC 164. Previously announced fights on that card include Clay Guida vs. Chad Mendes and Frank Mir vs. Josh Barnett.

-- As expected, Chael Sonnen vs. Mauricio "Shogun" Rua's bout will happen. Their fight will be the main event of the first UFC on Fox Sports 1 show on August 17. Urijah Faber will fight Yuri Alcantara on the same card.

-- Former Strikeforce champion Sarah Kaufman will make her UFC debut against Sara McMann at UFC on Fox Sports 1 - 2. Yes, that's an awkward name for an event, but it's a great match-up. Robert "Bubba" McDaniel will also fight Brad Tavares on August 28.

August will be a really busy time for MMA fans. Want to make some early fight predictions? Speak up on Facebook or Twitter.
