George Roop fights Brian Bowles at UFC 160

http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2013/3/28...bowles-ufc-160


Quote:
Former WEC bantamweight champion Brian Bowles last fought in November 2011, losing to Urijah Faber by submission. Bowles was out of action for all of last year, and wasn't even booked for any fights. Having neared Abe Vigoda levels of "Is he still alive?", UFC matchmaker Sean Shelby dusted off the cobwebs and pitted Bowles against George Roop for UFC 160. MMA Junkie confirmed the bout earlier this morning.

Bowles (10-2) famously took the WEC title away from Miguel Torres in August 2009, but he lost his only defense against Dominick Cruz after suffering a broken hand. He didn't fight again in the WEC, but when he entered the UFC he notched consecutive wins over Damacio Page and Takeya Mizugaki. The Faber defeat marked the first time Bowles had ever been finished.

Roop (13-9-1) recently won his bantamweight return against Reuben Duran at UFC 158, bringing his overall record at 135 lbs to 1-1. The TUF 8 alum previously went 1-3 (all at featherweight) in his UFC return. The career highlight for Roop is a head kick KO of Chan Sung Jung at WEC 51.
UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Silva II is on May 25th in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is likely that this fight will wind up on the preliminary card.
Damn Brian Bowles is still going?!! Always wondered what happened to that guy, almost drafted him on my FFL but thought he'd quietly retired!

Bowles via whatever the hell he wants! Great to see him back!

I think Roop is better standing but I think despite his size advantage he is alot like Struve and easy to hit. And against someone who hits like Bowles that may cost him. I see Brian winning by KO.

Glad to see Bowles back. Always a fan.
He takes this by KO in the second, if he doesn't break his hand that is.

I'm pleased he's back too, I thought the bad performance against Faber made him rethink his career but he needs to be in there as he is definitely top 10 in the world at 135 in my opinion.

I think Bowles has a really good shot at stopping Roop.

I agree, I put it down to his concrete hands.

Finally he's back. Been waiting to see this guy forever. Hopefully the time off doesn't effect him too much.

Go Roop! The guy won me over in his last fight. Showed he wasn't just a freakishly tall/skinny dude because he definitely demonstrated some skill in his last fight.

Jesus, where has Bowles been? I wonder if he's finally got a haircut that doesn't make him look like an 8 year old boy.
