Alex Caceres will lock horns with Martin Bravo in a featherweight fight at "The Ultimate Fighter 27” finale.
The promotion confirmed the pairing to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The “TUF 27” finale takes place at the Pearl Theater in Las Vegas on July 6 and is headline by a middleweight tilt between Brad Tavares and Israel Adesanya.
Caceres was supposed to fight Artem Lobov at UFC 223, but the bout was scrapped due to Lobov’s involvement in the Conor McGregor bus incident. “Bruce Leeroy” has lost three of his last four contests, including a split-decision defeat to Guan Wang at UFC Fight Night 122 on Nov. 25.
Bravo, meanwhile, suffered the first defeat of his pro career when he suffered a 26-second knockout loss to Humberto Bandenay at UFC Fight Night 114. The 24-year-old Mexico native begin his tenure with 11 straight victories, including a second-round stoppage of Claudio Puelles in his Octagon debut at UFC Fight Night 98.
