UFC 165 is set to feature a really exciting Bantamweight fight between Ivan Menjivar and Kid Yamamoto. UFC 165 is set to take place in Toronto Ontario, Canada on September 21st.

Both fighters are coming off big losses in their latest bouts. Ivan Menjivar last fight came at UFC 157 where he took on The California Kid Urijah Faber. The winner of the bout will put them in the right direction to face off against the UFC Bantamweight champion at some point. Faber came out on a winning ways submitting Menjivar via rear-naked choke in the 1st round. The win over Menjivar gave Faber that shine to say that “I am coming for that Bantamweight title”.

Kid Yamamoto on the other hand is on a down point in his MMA career. Yamamoto has not seen his hand raised in the UFC since coming to the promotion after his time with Dynamite. Yamamoto has been in three fights in his career and going on his forth fight in the UFC this fight needs to be all him if he is willing to stay within the promotion. 0-3 in the UFC has put Yamamoto on the hot seat. Yamamoto’s back will be against the wall in this coming fight against Ivan Menjivar
