Two featherweight bouts have been added to UFC 223 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on April 7.

Alex Caceres will face Artem Lobov, and Renato Moicano meets No. 15 ranked Calvin Kattar.

Caceres (13-11) has lost three of his last four bouts, most recently against Guan Wang by split decision last November.

Lobov (13-14-1), a training partner of Conor McGregor, has lost his last two fights by unanimous decision to Andre Fili and Cub Swanson.

Moicano (11-1-1) won his first three bouts in the UFC before losing to Brian Ortega by third-round submission last July.

Kattar (18-2) is 2-0 in the UFC with wins over Fili and most recently against Shane Burgos in January.

UFC 223 at the Barclays Center is headlined by a pair of title fights, with interim champion Tony Ferguson against Khabib Nurmagomedov for the lightweight title, and Rose Namajunas defending her strawweight title against Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
