Even though UFC on Fuel 5 is still three months away the UFC has wasted little time in putting together the lineup for their September 29 offering in Nottingham, England. Following their trend of booking Brits for the show, a featherweight bout between Jason Young and Robert Peralta was confirmed earlier today. Young joins fellow Englanders Brad Pickett, Che Mills, Paul Sass, and Dan Hardy on the card.
The 25-year old Young picked up his first win inside the Octagon this past April after losing a pair of hard-fought decisions to Michihiro Omigawa and Dustin Poirier. He holds an overall record of 9-5 with four finishes.
The 15-3 Peralta has been out of action since an accidental headbutt took Mackens Semerzier in late 2011, suffering an injury in training before his follow-up fight in February. He had won eight straight prior to the No Contest against Semerzier.
