Erosa vs. Ishihara Added to UFC 196 Card

The Ultimate Fighter 22 semifinalist Julian Erosa will be back in Las Vegas on Saturday, March 5, as he welcomes rising Japanese star Teruto "Yashabo" Ishihara to the United States in a UFC 196 featherweight bout at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

UFC 196 is headlined by the lightweight title fight between Rafael Dos Anjos and Conor McGregor and the women's bantamweight title bout between Holly Holm and Miesha Tate. Tickets are on sale now and may be purchased by clicking here.

Washington's Erosa, winner of five of his last six, got his UFC career off to a successful start when he scored a split decision win over TUF 22 cast mate Marcin Wrzosek in December. In March, he meets up with Road to UFC Japan finalist Ishihara, a charismatic competitor who made plenty of fans in his exciting three-round draw against Mizuto Hirota last September.
