Fernand Yves Jabouin (born May 30, 1979) is a Haitian-Canadian mixed martial artist who competes in the Bantamweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. A professional competitor since 2001, Jabouin has also formerly competed for the WEC.
Jabouin was born in Haiti, where he lived until he fled the war-torn country with his mother and two siblings, relocating in Canada. Jabouin began practicing the martial arts from a young age, as his father was a fan of Chuck Norris and the young Jabouin would often go to his local movie theatre to watch Kung Fu films. Jabouin attended college and graduated with a degree in Graphic Design, and used to work as an animator for television commercials.
Mixed martial arts career
Jabouin made his professional debut in 2001 on the regional circuit, fighting mostly in his native Canada and holding a professional record of 14-4 with 11 wins via knockout before being signed by the WEC.

Jabouin was expected to face Mike Easton on May 15, 2012 at UFC on Fuel TV: Korean Zombie vs. Poirier. However, Easton was forced out of the bout with an injury and replaced by Jeff Hougland. Jabouin showed superior striking and was able to drop Hougland multiple times with a variety of strikes en route to a unanimous decision victory.
Jabouin was expected to face Johnny Eduardo on March 16, 2013 at UFC 158. However, on March 6, Eduardo was forced to pull out of the bout citing a shoulder injury. Jabouin was then pulled from the card as a suitable replacement could not be found on short notice.
