Fights on Tap is a weekly roundup of all the fights booked in the UFC, Bellator and other promotions.

A ten-week stretch of nonstop action is upon us after a rare week off. The UFC continues to add to its upcoming schedule, with thirteen fights either announced or finalized this week and there are quite a few to get excited about.

A light heavyweight fight between surging prospects Jimmy Crute and Jamahal Hill has been moved to a Fight Night event in December. Crute and Hill find themselves in similar situations as they enter the Octagon for the first time since suffering gruesome injuries in their respective fights against Anthony Smith and Paul Craig earlier this year. A former Cage Warriors champion in Ian Garry has joined the roster and will make his promotional debut against Jordan Williams at UFC 268. Garry boasts an undefeated record of 7-0, with five of those coming by way of stoppage.

Bellator revealed the final additions to its lineups of Bellator 266 and 268. Among those additions is a lightweight fight between Benson Henderson and Brett Primus in October.
