UFC officials have been busy filling out the fight cards for the company’s spring schedule. The latest announced bout is a bantamweight showdown between Yves Jabouin and Mike Easton at UFC on Fuel TV 3 on May 15 in Fairfax, Va.
Jabouin (17-7) had a difficult time ramping things up as a featherweight on the Zuffa roster, going 1-3 in his four 145-pound bouts from the company, but he hit the ground running when he dropped down a weight class.
In his bantamweight debut, Jabouin defeated Ian Loveland at UFC 134 in Rio and followed that up by notching a win over Walel Watson at UFC 140 in Toronto.
Easton (12-1) defeated fighters like former WEC champion Chase Beebe and TUF 14 winner John Dodson in his pre-Zuffa days, immediately adding two more victories since emerging in the Octagon late last year. Easton is currently riding a seven-fight winning streak.
