UFC officials recently announced the news via the Houston Chronicle.
Alan Jouban (12-3 MMA) will be looking to extend his current win streak to three in a row when he squares off with Tumenov in Texas. “Brahma” was most recently seen in action at last month’s UFC Fight Night 71 event, where he scored a unanimous decision win over Matt Dwyer. Jouban has gone 3-1 thus far in his UFC career, earning two “performance of the night” bonuses in that time.
Meanwhile, Albert Tumenov (15-2 MMA) will fight for the first time since January’s UFC on FOX 14 event, where he earned a unanimous decision victory over Nicholas Musoke. That victory made it three in a row for “Einstein”, as he had previously scored victories over Matt Dwyer and Anthony Lapsley.
UFC 192 takes place October 3 live from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. The event is headlined by a light heavyweight title fight featuring champion Daniel Cormier taking on challenger Alexander Gustafsson.
