Tiger Jabouin Added to UFC Winnipeg Card
Tristar MMA’s Yves Jabouin (18-8) was to face Johnny Eduardo at UFC 158 in Montreal earlier this year, but Jabouin was dropped from the card after Eduardo pulled out due to injury. Jabouin has won three of his last four fights, having won three consecutive before getting knocked out by Brad Pickett September 29, 2012.
Dustin Pague (11-7) graduated to the UFC via The Ultimate Fighter, where Pague lost to T.J. Dillashaw in the semi-finals. He’s lost his last two bouts in the UFC and is 1-3 overall with the big show.
Pague and Jabouin join a packed event that features a Bantamweight title main event and a fight card that already includes Rashad Evans, Dan Henderson, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, Shogun Rua, and more.
