Brian Ebersole (50-15-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) and Rick Story (15-7 MMA, 8-5 UFC) will meet at UFC 167. UFC officials announced the 170-pound fight booking overnight.
UFC 167 takes place Nov. 16 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, and the main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and Facebook. Ebersole vs. Story is likely to be part of the preliminary card.
Ebersole will return to action after what will be 16 months on the sideline. Ebersole in 2011 finally made it to the UFC after more than 60 career fights, and he started 4-0 with wins over Chris Lytle, Dennis Hallman, Claude Patrick and T.J. Waldburger.http://www.mmajunkie.com/news/2013/0...7-in-las-vegasWith the addition, the latest UFC 167 card now includes:
Georges St-Pierre vs. Johny Hendricks - for welterweight title
Rashad Evans vs. Chael Sonnen
Frank Mir vs. Alistair Overeem
Robbie Lawler vs. Rory MacDonald
Josh Koscheck vs. Tyron Woodley
Donald Cerrone vs. Evan Dunham
Brian Ebersole vs. Rick Story
So happy to see Ebersole back in action. Anyone hear why he canceled his move to LW?
Overall, 167 looks to be a great card by star power and some fun matchups. I know I'll be alone, but I think Ebersole/Story is the fight I'm actually most excited for.
