Bowles vs. Mizugaky booked for UFC 132
Cruz vs. Faber 2 won’t be the only high-octane 135-pound bout inside the Octagon on July 2, as another battle of WEC vets has been verbally agreed upon for the event. “Brian Bowles looks to regain the bantamweight championship title, but first he’ll have to take on hard-hitting perennial top-10 contender Takeya Mizugaki at UFC 132,” said Dana White.
A win for Bowles would make him a serious contender to face the winner of Cruz and Faber’s bantamweight title fight, the main event at UFC 132. Bowles lost the title to Cruz in March of 2009.
