UFC on FX 5 Debacle Over, Yves Edwards Now Draws John Cholish at UFC on Fox 5 Instead

Posted on by Damon Martin

Yves EdwardsFollowing his non-fight at UFC on FX 5, Yves Edwards has received a new bout as promised by UFC President Dana White.

Edwards’ last scheduled fight against Jeremy Stephens was scrapped when the latter was arrested on an outstanding warrant for assault charges, and could not be released prior to the fight taking place.

After the event was over, White pledged to get Edwards another fight as pick as possible, and he’ll do just that placing the veteran fighter on the UFC on Fox 5 card in December.

Facing Edwards in Seattle will be Renzo Gracie student John Cholish, who makes his return to action for the first time since suffering a loss to Danny Castillo at UFC on Fox 3 in May.

The stock broker by day, fighter by night has gone 1-1 through two fights in the UFC, and looks to up that record when he faces Yves Edwards in December.

The Edwards vs. Cholish fight was first reported by MMAFighting.com.

    Good for him. Say what you want about Dana White but the man is honest as hell and will fix something that he feels is wrong. Yves got a crappy deal with the whole Stephens fight but kept his composure and trusted his company to do right by him. Ya know he could have made comments about Stephens or the situation but he didn’t… class act Yves
