    Yair Rodriguez vs. Dan Hooker added to UFC 192 slate

    By Dave Doyle @davedoylemma on Aug 3, 2015, 6:51p



    The hottest prospect to come out of The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America series is ready to make his U.S. debut.

    Featherweight Yair Rodriguez will meet Dan Hooker at UFC 192 in Houston on Oct. 3, three days before Rodriguez's 23rd birthday. La Aficion originally reported the news.

    Rodriguez (6-1), of Chihuahua, Mexico, won the debut season of TUF: Latin America, by defeating Leonardo Morales at UFC 180. He followed that up with a thrilling victory via split decision over Charles Rosa in a dynamic bout which took Fight of the Night honors.

    Hooker, from New Zealand, has compiled a record of 12-5 with 11 wins via finish. The New Zealander is 2-1 in the UFC and earned a Performance of the Night bonus for his head-kick KO finish of Hatsu Hioki on May 10.

    Great fight for Yair. Hooker looked pretty good against Hioki, and fights fairly offensively too.......should be an exciting fight.

    This fight happens after the IV Ban so im assuming it will be at 170 Pounds

    I have to favor Abel Trujillo in this Fight he is so explosive and athletic i think he will land a shot and eventually KO Glesion Tibua

    Julianna Pena vs. Jessica Eye added to UFC 192

    By Shaun Al-Shatti @shaunalshatti on Aug 4, 2015, 7:54p



    A meeting between women's bantamweight contenders Julianna Pena and Jessica Eye is slated for Oct. 3 at UFC 192. The UFC confirmed the bout Tuesday following an initial report by ESPN.

    Pena (6-2), the former underdog winner of The Ultimate Fighter 18, persevered through one of the grisliest knee injuries the sport has seen in recent memory to make her triumphant return with a first-round stoppage of Milana Dudieva at UFC Fight Night 63.

    The 25-year-old is currently ranked No. 11 on the UFC's media-generated women's bantamweight rankings. Known as "The Venezuelan Vixen," Pena finished Team Rousey No. 1 pick Shayna Baszler, Sarah Moras, and former champion boxer Jessica Rakoczy in 2013 to become the first female TUF winner in the series' history.

    She now faces a giant leap towards contendership, but only if she gets past Eye (11-3, 1 NC).

    The 29-year-old native of Cleveland lost a hard-fought decision to Miesha Tate in a bantamweight title eliminator at UFC on FOX 16, halting a run to the belt that began with a bloody victory over Leslie Smith.

    Regardless of the loss, Eye remains the No. 6 ranked female bantamweight in the UFC. She dropped a split decision to Alexis Davis and fought to a no contest against Sarah Kaufman due to a failed drug test for marijuana metabolites in her two other Octagon appearances.

    UFC 192 takes place at the Toyota Center in Houston, TX. Light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier looks to defend his title against Alexander Gustafsson in the night's main event.

    An updated UFC 192 fight card can be seen below.

    A very good test for Pena to see where she really is at
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Agreed, should let us all know how close she is to being a contender. Good thing for Pena is that her training partner just fought Jessica too, she'll already know a lot about her.(I think Pena still trains with Tate anyway)
