Koch vs. Brookins and Loveland vs. Jabouin Slated for Late Summer UFC Events

TUF 12 winner Jonathan Brookins will make his return to the featherweight division against Erik Koch at “Ultimate Fight Night 25: Battle on the Bayou” on Sept. 17 in New Orleans.

The fight, announced at MMAJunkie, will mark Brookins first fight since winning The Ultimate Fighter 12 at the TUF 12 Finale in December after struggling to recover from a broken orbital bone.

Brookins will look to continue his four fight win streak dating back to his WEC 36 loss to UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo, while Koch will be looking to run his “Knockout of the Night” streak to three when he faces the TUF 12 champion.

In other news, longtime featherweight fighter Yves Jabouin will drop to bantamweight to face Ian Loveland at UFC 134 on Aug. 27 in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.

Jabouin will be looking to get back in the win column after his loss at UFC 129 to Pablo Garza by flying triangle, while Loveland will also be looking to return to his winning ways after his seven fight winstreak came to an end against bantamweight contender Joseph Benavidez.
