Report: Robbie Peralta to Fight Estevan Payan at UFC 168
By FCF Staff
It looks like the UFC’s year end show on December 28th has 12 bouts confirmed, as according to multiple reports, Estevan Payan will battle featherweight Robbie Peralta at the Las Vegas bound event. UFC 168 will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena and will feature middleweight champ Chris Weidman taking on Anderson Silva in the main event.
Payan (14-4) is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Jeremy Stephens in his Octagon debut, which took place at UFC 160 this past May. Prior to the loss the Arizona fighter had gone undefeated in 8 straight bouts, which included two wins with Strikeforce.
Peralta (16-4) is also looking to get back on track, as the California vet dropped a UD to Akira Corassani at UFC on FUEL TV 9 in April. Afterwards, Peralta also picked up a six month suspension for testing positive for marijuana. The loss to Corassani snapped Peralta’s 10 fight undefeated streak.
UFC 168 will also feature bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey taking on Miesha Tate for a second time.
