The Bad Boy is Back: Ebersole Meets Howard

Fighting for the first time since last November, welterweight veteran Brian "Bad Boy" Ebersole will square off against John "Doomsday" Howard in a UFC 178 bout on September 27 in Las Vegas.

This will be Ebersole's first start since a UFC 167 loss to Rick Story. He has won 11 of his last 13. Boston's Howard is 4-1 in his last five, with UFC wins over Uriah Hall and Siyar Bahadurzada.
