Two Bantamweight Bouts Set for September

A pair of intriguing bantamweight battles have been added to the September schedule, as Hawaii's Dustin Kimura faces fellow submission specialist Ian Entwistle at UFC Fight Night in Connecticut on September 5, and longtime lightweight and featherweight standout Manny Gamburyan makes his 135-pound debut against Cody Gibson at UFC 178 in Las Vegas on September 27.

Both bouts have been verbally agreed to.

2-2 in the Octagon with finishes of Chico Camus and Jon De Los Reyes, Kimura will seek a return to the win column after a decision loss to George Roop in April against British leg lock specialist Entwistle, who gave a strong effort against Daniel Hooker in his June UFC debut before getting stopped.

Across the country in Las Vegas, UFC 178 will see Gamburyan try out his third UFC weight class against hungry prospect Gibson, who knows that a win over "The Anvil" would be a significant notch in his belt as he moves up the ranks.
