UFC On Fuel TV: Ivan Menjivar Vs. John Albert Reportedly Set

According to a report by Sherdog, Canadian bantamweight Ivan Menjivar will John Albert, cast member from Spike TV's fourteenth season of 'The Ultimate Fighter'. The fight will be part of UFC on Fuel TV 1, the Ultimate Fighting Championship's inaugural live fighting event on Fuel TV.

Menjivar enters this bout on a two-fight win streak, having most recently won a unanimous decision against Nick Page at UFC 133 in August of this year. Albert, by contrast, most recently made his UFC debut at The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale. He stopped fellow castmate Dustin Pague with strikes in just over a minute in the first round.
