A featherweight tilt pitting Alex Caceres against Jason Knight has been added to the UFC on Fox 23 lineup, promotion officials announced Tuesday.
UFC on Fox 23 takes place at the Pepsi Center in Denver on Jan. 28 and is headlined by a women’s bantamweight tilt between Valentina Shevchenko and Julianna Pena. The evening’s main card will be televised on the Fox Network.
Caceres had a two-fight winning streak snapped in his last outing, as he dropped a split-verdict to rising Mexican star Yair Rodriguez in the UFC Fight Night 92 headliner. The 28-year-old MMA Lab representative is 7-7 with one no contest during his promotion tenure and owns wins over the likes of Cole Miller, Sergio Pettis and Damacio Page.
Knight established himself as a featherweight to watch by going 2-0 in the Octagon in 2016. The Mississippi native took a split verdict over Jim Alers at UFC on Fox 20 in July before outpointing Dan Hooker at UFC Fight Night 101 in November. The 24-year-old known as “The Kid” is 15-2 as a pro, with nine wins via submission and two by KO/TKO.
