Scott Jorgenson vs. John Albert added to FOX 5


Recommended Posts



Stacked card is stacked :cool:


A bantamweight bout between Scott Jorgensen (13-6 MMA, 2-2 UFC) and John "Prince" Albert (7-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC) is the latest addition to December's UFC on FOX 5 fight card.


Sources close to the event today confirmed with MMAjunkie.com (http://www.mmajunkie.com) that verbal agreements are in place for the fight.


UFC on FOX 5 takes place Dec. 8 at KeyArena in Seattle. The main card airs on FOX following prelims on FUEL TV.


Jorgensen vs. Albert is slated for the prelims.


Jorgensen, a former WEC title challenger, finds himself in a must-win situation. The Utah-based fighter won his first two UFC fights (over Ken Stone and Jeff Curran) as part of an overall 7-1 run. But in 2012, he's suffered a decision loss to Renan Barao and a knockout defeat to Eddie Wineland. The latter, though, did earn Jorgensen a "Fight of the Night" bonus.


He now takes on Albert, who's also in desperate need of a win. After a quarterfinal-round finish on "The Ultimate Fighter 14," Albert secured a UFC contract with a dominant TKO victory over Dustin Pague on the undercard of the show's live finale. However, he's since suffered back-to-back submission losses to Ivan Menjivar and Erik Perez.


The latest UFC on FOX 5 lineup includes:

Champ Benson Henderson vs. Nate Diaz (for lightweight title)

Alexander Gustafsson vs. Mauricio "Shogun" Rua

Rory MacDonald vs. B.J. Penn

Lavar Johnson vs. Brendan Schaub

Dennis Siver vs. Eddie Yagin

Matt Brown vs. Mike Swick

John Albert vs. Scott Jorgensen*

Ramsey Nijem vs. Joe Proctor

Daron Cruickshank vs. Henry Martinez

Tim Means vs. Abel Trujillo
