Yves Jabouin and Mike Easton UFC on Fuel TV 3A bantamweight match-up between Yves Jabouin and Mike Easton has been added to the UFC 174 fight card in Vancouver. UFC officials confirmed the bout on Wednesday.

Jabouin (19-9) transitioned to the bantamweight division from the 145-pound weight class in 2011 and strung together three consecutive wins before losing to Brad Pickett in September 2012.

He’s coming off a knockout loss to Eddie Wineland on Jan. 25.

Easton (13-4) may be fighting for his job when he meets Jabouin on June 14. He made his UFC debut in October 2011 on a five-fight winning streak. He won his first three fights in the organization, but has lost by decision in his last three outings.

UFC 174 takes place on June 14 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. The main attraction for the fight card has not been announced yet.
