Bantamweight action added to already stacked UFC 140 event


UFC officials have booked a bantamweight bout between Yves Jabouin and Walel Watson for their upcoming December 10 card.

UFC officials took to twitter yesterday with the announcement.

UFC 140 is set to take place in Toronto on December 10 from the Air Canada Centre. A light-heavyweight title fight between current champ Jon Jones and former champ, Lyoto Machida will serve as the evening’s main event, live on pay-per-view.
