Trevin Jones found a new opponent in the form of a promotional newcomer Said Yokub for his second octagon appearance in 2021 at UFC Vegas 34.
Earlier, MMA Junkie reported that Mana Martinez is out of his debut UFC match against Trevin Jones. It is scheduled to take place this Saturday at UFC Vegas 34. But, the plans have been changed for some unknown reasons.
Now, MMA Island is reporting that UFC has found the replacement for Mana in the form of Said Yokub. At UFC Vegas 34, Said will also make his UFC debut and face Trevin Jones who will finally have his second UFC bout.
Trevin Jones won his first UFC match of 2021 against Mario Bautista at UFC 259. He won this match in the second round by TKO. After that, Jones was booked to face Tony Kelley and Ronnie Lawrence. However, these fights never happened due to the cancellation from the opponent’s side.
Said Yokub will head into his UFC debut with a lot of confidence as he recently had two straight victories. He also captured the CFFC bantamweight title in his most recent match in March.
Now, Trevin Jones and Said Yokub are all set to collide this Saturday, on August 21, at UFC Vegas 34. This event will be headlined by a middleweight bout between Jared Cannonier and Kelvin Gastelum.
