Menjivar in #1 Contender Match; Jabouin Gets New Opponent
There was quite the UFC Bantamweight shakeup today that involved two Canadians due to an injury to Mike Easton (12-1), as reported by Showdown Joe Ferraro,
Easton was to fight on the UFC on Fuel 3 against Yves Jabouin (17-7). Now, Jeff Hougland (10-4) will step in to fight The Tiger.
Hougland was to fight Renan Berao (28-1) but now Ivan Menjivar (24-8) replaces Houghland on the UFC 148 card. Menjivar vs Berao could be for the #1 contender to the Bantamweight title. Both fighters are 3-0 in their UFC careers and are in a division with few obvious contenders.
