Yves Edwards returns to the Octagon
Once considered the top lightweight in the UFC, Yves Edwards is headed back to the Octagon as the master of Thug-jitsu himself will face John Gunderson at UFC Fight Night in Austin, TX on September 15.
The bout was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources close to the fight on Wednesday, stating that the fight has been offered and accepted by both parties.
A multi-time veteran of the UFC, Yves Edwards (38-16-1) has always been considered one of the top lightweights, and toughest match-ups in the sport. Spending the last few years fighting in different organizations, Edwards is coming off a win over Luis Palomino in Bellator Fighting Championships just last week.
