Tachi Palace champion, Eddie Yagin and octagin returnee, Junior Assuncao will meet in a featherweight bout at UFC 135 in Denver, Colorado on September 24th, 2011. Sources close to the fighters confirmed the news, adding verbal agreements were in place on both sides.

Yagin trains alongside UFC bantamweight champion, Dominick Cruz and was last seen in action when he picked up an ultra-impressive win over former Bellator champion, Joe Soto via submission.

Assuncao, brother of Raphael Assuncao, went 1-2 during his first spell with the UFC but has put together an impressive six-fight winning streak and returned to his more natural weight class.
