Jonathan Goulet offered fight at UFC 97 vs. Tamdan McCrory has learned that UFC welterweight competitor Jonathan Goulet has been offered a fight against Tamdan McCrory during a tentatively scheduled UFC 97 event that could take place on April 18 in Montreal, Canada.

A source close to Goulet confirmed the rumored matchup to on Tuesday night but was quick to add that the bout has not been finalized and that the Canadian fighter must receive medical clearance before he could accept the fight.

Goulet, 22-10, suffered multiple injuries last month during a first round TKO loss to Mike Swick during the UFC’s “UFC Fight for the Troops” event in Fayetteville, North Carolina. During the bout, Goulet not only suffered a knee injury but he required a brain scan that was conducted at a local hospital following the loss.

McCrory, 10-2, is also coming off a loss. The 22-year old fighter submitted to a reverse armbar by Dustin Hazelett at 3:59 of round 1 during UFC 91. The defeat reduced his record inside the Octagon to 2-2 and gave him two losses in his last three fights.

If finalized, UFC 97 would emanate from the Bell Centre in Montreal. However, published reports indicate that the date has not formally been booked by the UFC because the availablity of the venue is not yet certain as it also serves as the home for the NHL’s Montreal Canadians. If the Canadians make the playoffs, the Saturday date could cause a conflict.

While no bouts have been officially announced by the UFC for the proposed fight card, it is believed that matchups between UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva vs. Thales Leites and David Loiseau vs. Ed Herman could be signed for the show.

    Somebody needs to protect this kid. I love KO’s just like everyone else, but he has been KO in his last 100 fights. I would really like to see him out at least 6 months.

  • umm says:

    According to Sherdog he has 1 loss in his last 4 fights.

  • Alex Pelletier says:

    They could always use the Olympic Stadium if the Canadiens make the playoffs. There’s alot more seating though, i think its around 65000-70000 seats.

  • Yah but says:

    He’s lost 8 of his 10 losses by TKO or KO.

  • James says:
