“The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America” Season 1 winner Alejandro Perez will lock horns with Andre Soukhamthath at UFC Fight Night 114 in Mexico City.
The Las Vegas-based promotion recently confirmed the bantamweight pairing. UFC Fight Night 114 takes place at Mexico City Arena on Aug. 5 and is headlined by a flyweight clash pitting Sergio Pettis against Brandon Moreno.
Perez is 3-1-1 thus far during his Octagon tenure. “El Diablito” last appeared at UFC Fight Night 94, where he battled Alberto Morales to a majority draw on Sept. 17. Prior to that, Perez had scored back-to-back TKO wins over Ian Entwistle and Scott Jorgensen.
A longtime CES MMA veteran, Soukhamthath came up short in his promotional debut, falling to Morales via split decision at UFC 209 on March 4. “The Asian Sensation” is 11-4 as a professional, with 10 triumphs by knockout, technical knockout or submission.
