Alan Jouban


Drops close split decision to Dwight Grant
April 13, 2019
Jouban lost to Dwight Grant via split decision (28-29, 30-27, 28-29) at UFC 236 on Saturday in Atlanta.
Jouban may have very well deserved a better fate in his first fight in more than 14 months, but the truth of the matter is that neither man did much of anything. As a result, it's difficult to get overly upset about the judges' decision. Jouban landed just 25 total strikes over the course of the 15-minute bout and for a guy who relies on his striking to generate offense, that's not going to get the job done. The 36-year-old Jouban has won just once since December 2016.

Jouban is booked to fight Danny Roberts in a welterweight bout at UFC Hamburg on July 22.
Jouban most recently put an end to a two-fight losing streak when he defeated Ben Saunders via KO in Round 2 of their fight at UFC on FOX 28 back in February.

Hammers Ben Saunders Saturday in Orlando
February 24, 2018
Jouban defeated Ben Saunders via KO (punch) at 2:38 of Round 2 at UFC on FOX 28 on Saturday in Orlando.
Jouban gets hit far too much to be considered a true title contender in the UFC's welterweight division, but his power is undeniable. His aggressive style can work against him at times but that wasn't the case on Saturday. He continually pushed forward and threw countless kicks to keep the taller Saunders off balance. The game plan worked, and thus gave Jouban the opening to land the perfectly placed left hand that ended the fight. On the heels of back-to-back losses, it was a victory that the 36-year-old had to have. Now it's time for Jouban to string together some wins. A member of the UFC roster since August 2014, Jouban's longest win streak with the company is three fights. That's not going to get the job done.
Will fight at UFC Orlando
January 9, 2018
Jouban will take on Ben Saunders in a welterweight matchup at UFC Orlando on Feb. 24, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Jouban has been fighting with the UFC since 2014, but has recently hit a rough patch, dropping back-to-back bouts to Gunnar Nelson (Round 2 submission) and Niko Price (Round 1 TKO). He'll draw a fighter in Saunders that has been around the block, racking up 31 professional fights -- most of which have came under the UFC or Bellator banners. The two will help set the table for a main event featuring Yoel Romero and David Branch.
