Easton Injured | Jabouin Now Faces Hougland, Menjivar Steps In Opposite Barao

That injury bug just won’t leave the UFC alone.

This time it has hit the UFC on FUEL TV 3 card and forced bantamweight Mike Easton out of his scheduled bout with Yves Jabouin.  In his place comes Jeff Hougland who has originally scheduled to face Renan Barao. With Renan Barao losing his UFC 148 opponent, Ivan Menjivar has accepted the call to service and will fill the vacancy.

UFC on FUEL TV 3 is set to take place from the Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA on May 15. A featherweight bout between Dustin Poirier and Chang Sung Jung headlines the event.

UFC 148 is expected to go down on July 7 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV. In the headlining fight UFC champion Dominick Cruz will attempt to defend his title for a second time against Urijah Faber.

    GOOD!!!!!! Renan has the best pro record in the business and they give him some no name to face…….. For Ivan Menjivar to step up against Renan says a lot, pure balls lol I hope he does well but Renan is on another level with regards to every aspect of the game, i’m glad this injury happen, now we get to see a real fight!
