TUF 12 Winner Jonathan Brookins to Face Erik Koch

Sherdog reports that The Ultimate Fighter season 12 winner Jonathan Brookins will make his much awaited return to the Octagon this September when he faces off against Erik Koch at UFC Fight Night 25: Battle on the Bayou.

Koch (12-1) is coming off of his promotional debut at UFC 128 this past March, where he defeated Raphael Assuncao with a quick snap of the wrist, tossing out a sharp counter-punch in the first round which sent the Brazilian to the ground and ended the fight, earning Koch Knockout of the Night honors in the process.

Brookins (12-3), who will be returning to featherweight for the bout after joining the UFC as a lightweight, is making his first appearance in the UFC following his unanimous decision victory over Michael Johnson last December at The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale. Following the bout he was forced to pull out of two subsequent matches: one with John Makdessi in April and most recently against Jeremy Stephens a week ago at The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale.

Battle on the Bayou, which will also feature matches between Alan Belcher (15-5) and Jason MacDonald (26-14) & Dongi Yang (10-1) and Court McGee (13-1), is scheduled to take place September 17 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA.
