Unbeaten Almeida Seeks Win against Jabouin in Montreal

Following a Fight of the Night victory over Tim Gorman in his UFC debut in Brazil last November, Sao Paulo bantamweight Thomas Almeida will take his show on the road on April 25, when he takes on Canada's own Yves Jabouin in a UFC 186 bout at Bell Centre in Montreal.
Almeida currently sports an 18-0 pro MMA record, but he will be pushed to the limit in defending that "0" by Montreal's Jabouin, an eight-fight UFC veteran coming off a UFC 174 win over Mike Easton last June.
Plus, Montrealers will have another local favorite to cheer for, as striking specialist John "The Bull" Makdessi returns to the Octagon to face off with hard-hitting Abel "Killa" Trujillo in a lightweight matchup.
