Jabouin (18-8) is currently 3-2 inside the octagon. While the Tristar Gym member is coming off of a brutal knockout loss to Brad Pickett at UFC: Nottingham, “Tiger” had put together an impressive three-fight run prior to the loss. The hometown fighter has taken victories over Jeff Houghland, Walel Watson, and Ian Loveland under the UFC banner.
The man across the cage, Johnny Eduardo (26-9), is 1-1 inside the octagon. While the Brazilian suffered a loss at the hands of Raphael Assuncao in his 2011 UFC debut, he bounced back in may of last year, earning a unanimous decision victory Jeff Curran in his sole 2012 appearance.
This bantamweight tilt is likely to be part of the evening’s preliminary card.
