UFC on FOX 8: Albert vs. Meza Announced

Yaotzin Mesa

The UFC on FOX 8 has added another bout as John Albert takes on Yaotzin Meza. The bantamweight bout will take place on the Seattle card’s preliminary lineup.

Both fighters head into the bout in need of a win in a big way. Albert dropped of a “Fight of the Night” performance in his last fight against Scott Jorgensen. Albert has lost three straight since winning his UFC debut.

Yaotzin Meza is 1-2 in his last three fights but only one of those happened in the UFC. Meza stepped in on extreme short notice to take on Chad Mendes prior to UFC on FX 6, where he was crushed by the former featherweight contender in the first round.

UFC on FOX 8 marks the UFC’s return to Seattle after successful cards each of the last two years. UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson will face John Moraga in the evening’s headlining bout. A welterweight bout between Jake Ellenberger and Rory MacDonald will serve as the evening’s co-main event.
