A middleweight bout between Ryan Jensen (14-6) and Jesse Forbes (11-4) has been signed for UFC 114, which is scheduled to go down at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 29, according to MMAFighting.com.
Both fighters are coming off losses, meaning that this could very well end up being a good 'ole loser leaves town match.
Jensen was last seen in action earlier this year at UFC 108 where he was defeated by Mark Munoz in the first round. Coming into that contest, Jensen had only won three of his previous seven fights and has only tasted victory once in five tries under the UFC banner.
Jesse "Kid Hercules" Forbes, a member of the third season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF), has had a bit of a better run lately than his counterpart at UFC 114. Despite dropping his last contest at UFC Fight Night 20 against Nick Catone, Forbes has only lost twice in his last nine fights.
After getting cut from the UFC following his defeat at the hands of Matt Hamill at the TUF 3 Finale, Forbes enjoyed great success in smaller regional shows, but just hasn't been able to put it all together on the sport's biggest stage.
He'll look for his first win in the UFC come Memorial Day weekend.
UFC 114 is expected to be headlined by TUF 10 coaches and now mortal enemies "Suga" Rashad Evans and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. The card is also expected to feature an interesting battle between Forrest Griffin and Antonio Rogerio Noguiera. It's all set to go down on May 29 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
