It's about to get all National Geographic up in Canada this winter.
The promotion brought word of the pending match-up earlier today, saying:
"Jabouin is looking to stay undefeated since moving into the weight division and Watson is coming off a spectacular KO win," said UFC president Dana White today. Both fighters have verbally agreed to the bout.
He had lost three of four before that win, so it's not like he's been lighting on the Octagon on fire. He's as talented as they come, though, and those heavy hands have mesmerized all the right people.
Despite having a fight under the UFC banner, Walel Watson (9-2) is probably a name you don't recognize and that's fine. He only scored a first round knockout in his debut with the world's largest fight promotion.
Still, he's 27-years-old and has just 11 fights under his belt. Will that relative inexperience rear its ugly head against a veteran of the game like Jabouin?
