Yves Jabouin vs. Walel Watson Slated for UFC 140

"The Tiger" will meet "The Gazelle" north of the border at UFC 140.

Yves Jabouin, nicknamed "The Tiger," will take on Walel Watson, nicknamed "The Gazelle," on the Dec. 10 card in Toronto, the organization announced Friday afternoon.

Jabouin (16-7) is 2-3 in Zuffa. The Montreal-native won his UFC debut at UFC 134 when he defeated Ian Loveland via unanimous decision. Prior to making his UFC debut in April, he fought for WEC.

The 5-foot-11 Watson looked impressive in his Octagon debut earlier in the month at UFC Live on Versus 6 when he defeated Joseph Sandoval in just 77 seconds via TKO.

UFC 140, headlined by Jon Jones vs. Lyoto Machida vs. UFC light heavyweight title, will air live on pay-per-view from Toronto's Air Canada Centre.
