Jeremy Horn vs Wilson Gouveia UFC Fight Night 15 fight confirmed

jeremy horn vs wilson gouveia

Jeremy Horn (80-18-5) and Wilson Gouveia (10-5) have been booked to go toe-to-toe at UFC Fight Night 15 from the Omaha Civic Auditorium in Omaha, Neb., on September 17, according to

There's currently no confirmation under which weight class the two will compete -- Horn has most recently seen action at middleweight and Gouveia typically takes care of business at light heavyweight. However, it's likely that this will take place at 185 pounds.

And if that's the case, Gouveia is a fine addition to a category that needs talented and experienced fighters. The American Top Team-trained product has a five-fight win streak snapped vie technical knockout when he last stepped inside the Octagon against Goran Reljic at UFC 84: "Ill Will" back in May.

It was the first loss for Gouveia under the UFC banner since his debut against Keith Jardine back in 2006. His UFC record stands at 4-2.

Horn is on a two fight skid since returning to the promotion, losing to Dean Lister and Nate Marquardt, respectively, via submission (guillotine chokes). In fact, "Gumby" has won just two of his last six fights. He's a journeyman and a legend in the sport at just 32-years-old, however, which means that he has the ability to win a fight every time he competes.

It's not going to be easy -- Gouveia is very well-versed in submissions and can hit hard.
