A switch has been made to a couple of bantamweight bouts on upcoming UFC cards after an injury forced Mike Easton off the UFC on Fuel 3 show in May. With Easton out, UFC officials have moved Jeff Hougland from UFC 148 over to UFC on Fuel 3 to face Yves Jabouin. Since Hougland has been moved over to UFC on Fuel 3, veteran fighter Ivan Menjivar will now shift into his spot and face Renan Barao at UFC 148 . “Menjivar is my new opponent at UFC 148,” wrote Barao via his Twitter account. view original article >>
