An intriguing match-up at featherweight has been added to the UFC on Versus 5 card in Milwaukee with former title contender Leonard Garcia taking on Alex ‘Bruce Leroy’ Caceres.

The bout was confirmed by the UFC on Wednesday.

Leonard Garcia (15-7-1) will look to get back to dominant form when he returns to the cage in August. Over his last several fights, Garcia has gone 2-2-1 with his wins coming by somewhat controversial fashion.

A long time disciple of Greg Jackson and Mike Winkeljohn, Garcia will try to turn things around when he faces Caceres at UFC on Versus 5.

Getting another shot to prove himself in the UFC, former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ competitor Alex Caceres (4-3) returns in what has to be a ‘win or go home’ fight for the young featherweight.

Caceres got overwhelmed in his first appearance in the Octagon as he was submitted by Mackens Semerzier at UFC Fight Night 24 in March. He’ll try to turn the corner when he faces Garcia at UFC on Versus 5.

The bout between Garcia and Caceres will occupy a slot on the night’s undercard.
