Former Ultimate Fighter competitor Alex Caceres will look to bounce back from a loss as he faces WEC veteran Damacio Page at UFC on Fuel 4 in July.

UFC officials confirmed the fight on Thursday.

Since exiting TUF 12, Caceres has yet to find his true footing in the UFC going 1-3 through his first four fights so a win in July might be crucial to his long term future in the Octagon.

Caceres has looked stronger since dropping down to 135lbs, but when he returns at UFC on Fuel 4 it might be win or go home.

The same could be said for his opponent Damacio Page as he looks to rebound from three losses in a row between the WEC and UFC.

Page has dealt with a series of injuries over the last couple of years that have kept him out of consistent fights, but now that he’s healthy he’s looking to get back into the deep end of the UFC’s bantamweight division.

Caceres vs. Page will be on the undercard of the UFC on Fuel 4 show taking place on July 11 in San Jose.

Also confirmed for the July 11 card is a previously reported bout between Anthony Njokuani and Rafael Dos Anjos, who steps in after Paul Taylor dropped out due to injury.
