Jason Reinhardt vs. Edwin Figueroa at UFC on Versus 5 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Now the oldest fighter on the UFC roster, veteran, Jason Reinhardt will face Brazilian, Edwin Figueroa in a bantamweight bout at UFC on Versus 5 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on August 14th, 2011.

UFC President, Dana White, speaking via UFC.com, said:

“Jason Reinhardt and Edwin Figueroa have verbally agreed to face each other in a bantamweight bout, August 14th in Milwaukee. With 20 wins, Reinhardt has never gone the distance and Figueroa is coming off a sensational “Fight of The Night” performance against Michael McDonald.”

Reinhardt, he will be making his bantamweight debut after falling short against Tiequan Zhang at UFC 127 in February in just 47 seconds. He had amassed an impressive 20-1 record prior to that but a string of injuries had kept him out of action. Figueroa made his octagon debut stepping up short to take on top prospect, Michael McDonald on the UFC Fight Night 24 card in March. He came up short on the judges scorecards but his performance did secure the “Fight of the Night” bonus.
