Gunnar Nelson vs. Alan Jouban set for UFC Fight Night 107 co-main event
Nelson (15-2-1) began his career on an impressive thirteen-fight winning streak. Most recently, the Icelandic native is coming off a nasty neck crank victory over the always dangerous Albert Tumenov in May 2016. Nelson is 6-2 under the UFC banner.
Jouban (15-4) is riding a three-fight winning streak, dating back to October 2015, when he lost to the aforementioned Tumenov. His three victories come over Brendan O’Reilly, Belal Muhammad and Mike Perry. A ‘Fight of the Night’ bonus also sits on his rap sheet during that streak.
