Yves Jabouin rocks Brandon Visher WEC 52The UFC has been working diligently on filling up the UFC 158 fight card slated for March 16 in Montreal.

The latest addition is a bantamweight bout pitting Montreal based fighter Yves Jabouin against Brazilian Johnny Eduardo.

Jabouin (18-8) is a teammate of UFC champion Georges St-Pierre, training alongside him at the TriStar Gym in Montreal. He has been on the Zuffa roster since emerging in the WEC more than three years ago.

Jabouin has gone 3-2 since making the jump over to the Octagon with the rest of the WEC roster, but recently had a three-fight winning streak derailed by Brad Pickett at UFC on Fuel TV 5 in England.

He’ll face no easy task trying to get back on track when he steps in with Johnny Eduardo (26-9).

The Brazilian is 12-1 in his last 13 bouts, losing only to Raphael Assuncao by decision more than a year ago. Eduardo has since rebounded with a victory over Jeff Curran at UFC on Fuel TV 3 last spring.

Jabouin’s teammate, Georges St-Pierre, squares off with Nick Diaz with the UFC welterweight belt on the line in the UFC 158 main event on March 16 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.
