The UFC 250 card is starting to take shape, as three more bouts were recently confirmed for the June 6 event.

The following contests were announced by the promotion on Saturday: Alonzo Menifield vs. Devin Clark at light heavyweight, Ian Heinisch vs. Gerald Meerschaert at middleweight and Charles Byrd vs. Maki Pitolo at middleweight.

UFC 250 takes place at an as yet to be announced location and will feature a women’s featherweight title tilt between Amanda Nunes and Felicia Spencer. A bantamweight scrap pitting Cody Garbrandt against Raphael Assuncao is also slated for the card.

A two-time competitor on Dana White’s Contender Series, Menifield has kicked off his UFC tenure with first-round stoppages of Vinicius Moreira Castro and Paul Craig to run his professional record to 9-0. Clark, meanwhile, is coming off a unanimous decision triumph against Dequan Townsend at UFC Fight Night 167 and is 5-4 in the Octagon overall.

Another Contender Series alum, Heinisch has dropped back-to-back contests at the hands of Derek Brunson and Omari Akhmedov within the Las Vegas-based promotion. A veteran of 43 pro bouts, Meerschaert has won two of his last three Octagon appearances, including a submission of Deron Winn in his last outing at UFC 248.

Byrd will look to snap a two-bout skid after suffering TKO losses to Edmen Shahbazyan and Darren Stewart. Pitolo was outpointed by Callan Potter in his promotional debut at UFC 243 after earning a contract on Season 3 of the Contender Series.
