Mike Easton vs. Yves Jabouin Official for UFC on Fuel TV 3

Easton, Jabouin face off in Virginia in May

A bantamweight tilt between Mike Easton and Yves Jabouin has been confirmed for UFC on Fuel TV 3.

The promotion announced the bout earlier this week.

Easton, who exploded onto the UFC scene just recently in his debut with the promotion, defeated Jared Papazian via narrow majority decision at UFC on FX: Guillard vs. Miller last month. Prior to that, in his debut under the Zuffa banner, he declared himself one of the promotion’s top prospects with a vicious technical knockout win against Byron Bloodworth.

Meanwhile, Jabouin also finds himself geared for a title run after back-to-back wins, no matter how close they were. The Canadian fighter earned both of those wins via split decision against Ian Loveland and Walel Watson at UFC 134 and UFC 140, respectively.

UFC on Fuel TV 3 is set for Fairfax, Va., on May 15 and features a main event featherweight bout between contenders Dustin Poirier and Chan Sung Jung, better known as “The Korean Zombie.”
