A match-up with definite implications in the UFC bantamweight division has been booked for the organization’s August 28 event in Indianapolis. Though not officially announced, it appears Erik Perez will take on Takeya Mizugaki at UFC on FS 2 with each hoping to extend a winning streak and ultimately secure a shot at top contendership.
MMAWeekly was first to report the rumble.
The 13-4 Perez has finished all but two of his opponents and is currently on an eight-fight winning streak. All three of his victories inside the Octagon have occurred in the opening round of action.
Mizugaki holds a career mark of 17-7-2. He was last seen outpointing Bryan Caraway in March.
UFC on FS 2 is headlined by a bout between welterweights Martin Kampmann-Carlos Condit with other scheduled scraps including Sara McMann-Sarah Kaufman, Kelvin Gastelum-Paulo Thiago, and Rafael dos Anjos-Donald Cerrone.
