Jouban Debuts Against Baczynski in Maine

Welterweight prospect Alan "Brahma" Jouban will get a tough assignment for his UFC debut on August 16, when he faces off with veteran Seth Baczynski in UFC Fight Night action in Bangor, Maine.

Winner of eight of his last nine, Louisiana's Jouban may moonlight as an actor and model, but his wins over Chris Spang and Ricky Legere Jr. have shown him to be all-fighter when the bell rings. Entering his 10th UFC bout, Baczynski can appreciate that attitude, especially coming off a thrilling Fight of the Night battle with Thiago Alves in April.

Tickets for UFC Fight Night, which is headlined by the light heavyweight bout between Ryan Bader and Ovince Saint Preux, and which also features Tim Boetsch vs. Brad Tavares, are on sale now.
