Yves EdwardsFollowing his non-fight at UFC on FX 5, Yves Edwards has received a new bout as promised by UFC President Dana White.

Edwards’ last scheduled fight against Jeremy Stephens was scrapped when the latter was arrested on an outstanding warrant for assault charges, and could not be released prior to the fight taking place.

After the event was over, White pledged to get Edwards another fight as pick as possible, and he’ll do just that placing the veteran fighter on the UFC on Fox 5 card in December.

Facing Edwards in Seattle will be Renzo Gracie student John Cholish, who makes his return to action for the first time since suffering a loss to Danny Castillo at UFC on Fox 3 in May.

The stock broker by day, fighter by night has gone 1-1 through two fights in the UFC, and looks to up that record when he faces Yves Edwards in December.

The Edwards vs. Cholish fight was first reported by MMAFighting.com.
