One Octagon debutant has been replaced by another at
UFC on Fuel TV 6
, as Motonobu
steps in for an injured Kyung Ho
to face Alex
Promotion officials announced the change on Saturday. UFC on Fuel
TV 6 marks the UFC’s first effort on Chinese soil and takes place
Nov. 10 at the CotaiArena in Cotai, Macau. Headlined by a
middleweight confrontation between former UFC champion Rich
Franklin and ex-Strikeforce ruler Cung Le, the
evening’s main draw airs live on Fuel TV.
Tezuka has lost just once in his last 16 fights, falling via split
decision last year to Shintaro
Ishiwatari. A veteran of both Pancrase and Deep competition,
the 25-year-old has been perfect through 2012 thus far, earning a
March 11 technical knockout over Tatsuya So
before outpointing Shunichi
Shimizu on April 28 at Pancrase “Progress Tour 5.”
Known to fans of “The Ultimate Fighter” as “Bruce Leeroy,” Caceres,
24, has taken significant strides in his last three fights,
outpointing veteran Cole
Escovedo one year ago before acquitting himself well in a
February split decision defeat to Edwin
Figueroa. The American last competed on July 11 at UFC on Fuel
TV 4, submitting Jackson’s MMA representative Damacio
Page with a second-round triangle choke.
