Ryo Chonan is set to face Brazilian Roan "Jucao" Carneiro at UFC 88. The news comes directly from Jucao's manager Alex Davis courtesy of our good friends over at Tatame.com:

"This is an important fight for the Jucão," said Davis. "It is a fight he wanted for a long time and it didn’t happen at UFC 85 because Chonan got injured. He is now training hard and will be very well prepared for this fight."

Should be a competitive match up. Don't know who I like. I assume Chonan will be a favorite. Roan is getting better and better.

i wouldn't say it's a lock, but i think chonan controls the fight wherever it goes and picks up a ud. nice to see this fight finally happening.

I hate to see Ryo lose ever. He has such heart. I'll be betting on Roan though.

That's exactly why I am going with Chonan. Before Burns, I would've went with Carneiro.

I'm pretty excited to see Chonan back, he looked good against Karo even in defeat, I think he takes this fight.

Problem with Chonan is he doesn't always show up to fight. I really like him as a fighter but sometimes he can look B class to me.
