Omigawa vs. Young Official For UFC 138

Jason Young

Omigawa, Young meet in Great Britain

A 145 lb. bout between Michihiro Omigawa and Jason Young has been made official for UFC 138 in England.

UFC officials announced the news earlier today.

This fight will be the fifth in the UFC for Omigawa, who is still winless in the Octagon. He returned to the promotion last year against Chad Mendes at UFC 126, losing via unanimous decision, and then was defeated by Darren Elkins at UFC 131, though that decision was highly controversial.

Young debuted in the promotion at UFC 131, losing to Dustin Poirier via unanimous decision. Likely facing a must-win scenario, the 12-fight veteran looks to better his record to 9-4.

UFC 138 is set for Birmingham, England on November 5. The event will feature a headliner between Chris Leben and Mark Munoz.
