Louisiana Favorites Jordan, Lewis, and Jouban Head Home in June

 
Three Octagon favorites with ties to Louisiana will be heading home for bouts on the June 6 UFC Fight Night card at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans.

In a heavyweight bout, New Orleans native Derrick Lewis, fresh from a finish of Ruan Potts last weekend, will take on former LSU fullback Shawn Jordan in what promises to be an explosive contest.

Plus, another winner from UFC 184, Lafayette native Alan Jouban, will return home and look to follow up his win over Richard Walsh with a victory over seasoned welterweight veteran Brian Ebersole.

Tickets for UFC Fight Night, which is headlined by the light heavyweight matchup between Daniel Cormier and Ryan Bader, go on sale on Friday, April 10. The card will air live on FOX Sports 1.
