Erik Perez vs. Byron Bloodworth Full Fight Prediction by Paulie G
A bantamweight bout between Erik Perez (12-4 MMA, 2-0 UFC) and Byron Bloodworth (6-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) is the latest addition to the UFC's stacked year-end card.
UFC officials today announced Perez and Bloodworth have joined December's UFC 155 lineup.
UFC 155 takes place Dec. 29 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The night's main card, including a heavyweight title fight between champion Junior Dos Santos and ex-champ Cain Velasquez, airs on pay-per-view. Perez vs. Bloodworth likely will be part of the prelims, which FX and Facebook are expected to carry.
Perez and Bloodworth have a bit of shared history. Perez replaced Bloodworth earlier this year at The Ultimate Fighter 15 Finale, where he submitted John "Prince" Albert.
The fight marked Perez's UFC debut, which he followed with a knockout win over Ken Stone at UFC 150 in September. The Mexican-born Tea watch video >>
