An exciting bout between Eddie Wineland and Yves Jabouin has been booked in the bantamweight division, which is expected to go down on UFC on Fox 10. This news was confirmed by the Chicago Sun-Times today. This is a huge fight for both fighters, both of whom are looking to move up the bantamweight ranks.
Wineland comes into this bout ready to make a statement. His last fight was against Renan Barao for the interim bantamweight title. Wineland looked good early, winning the first round. But it was Barao who was able to uncork a dynamic kick, which ended Wineland’s chance of becoming a UFC champion. He will be looking to prove he still has what it takes to compete for a belt, and Yves is a good opponent for him, as he has an exciting style just like Wineland.
Yves comes into this bout off a win over Dustin Pague. It was a closely contested fight, but ultimately, the judges gave Yves the split decision. He will be looking to build off this win and get a streak going. Yves is a very good kick boxer, who has recently shown some improvements in terms of his grappling game. Wineland will be a huge fight for him, so he will be looking to take full advantage of picking up a win over a big name.
It should be a great fight for the fans, as both are known to keep the fight standing in hopes of putting on a show for everyone in the crowd.
