Edwards vs. Cholish set for UFC on FOX 5

by Luke Thomas | source: mmafighting.com

Yves Edwards has a new fight. After his scheduled bout at UFC on FX 5 with Jeremy Stephens fell out, UFC President Dana White promised to get the ATT-trained lightweight a new fight. Edwards will now face John Cholish at UFC on FOX 5 on Dec. 8th.

MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani confirmed the news Wednesday with event sources.

The Bahamian fighter was scheduled to face Stephens on the preliminary portion of last Friday's card, but Stephens was arrested the morning of the fight on an outstanding warrant for a 2011 assault committed in Iowa. Attempts by the UFC to free Stephens on Friday to give him enough time to compete were unsuccessful.

I work for a very solid regional promotion called CFFC (Cage Fury Fighting Championships) and Cholish was our LW Champ before being picked up by the UFC! I always like seeing our guys do well! Old school vs. the new breed! I hope it's a good 1!

Cholish is a stud but Yves really is the man. This is a great match up and will definitely be an awesome fight. Can't wait.

I'll be happy to see Yves fight, but I was hoping for bigger names to be added to that undercard.
