Flyweight Louis Gaudinot (6-3) looks set to make his UFC return against the highly touted Kyoji Horiguchi (14-1) at UFC 182.
The TUF season 14 contestant who currently has a UFC record of 1-2-1 makes his return to action after being suspended for six months for testing positive for a banned diuretic after his bout with Phil Harris at UFC Fight Night 38.
Gaudinot was originally scheduled to make his return to action earlier this month against Paddy “Hooligan” Holohan but was forced to pull-out after picking up an injury and will now look to get back to winning ways with a win over Japanese fighter Horiguchi.
Former Shooto champion Horiguchi who is ranked at No. 10 in the UFC flyweight rankings has gone 3-0 so far during his time with the worlds No.1 mixed martial arts promotion, will look to make the man nicknamed “Goodnight” victim number 4 after defeating Dustin Pague, Darrell Montague and Jon Delos Reyes a long the way.
UFC 182 takes place on 3 January 2015 Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena and MMA Plus will bring you more news on this event as well get it.
