The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s upcoming event in New Orleans has picked up an interesting, bantamweight match-up, as the promotion has announced that Alex Caceres will battle Francisco Rivera.

UFC Fight Night 68 will be hosted by the city’s Smoothie King Center on June 6th.

Caceres (10-7) is looking to get back on track, as he’s coming off a decision loss to Masanori Kanehara and a submission defeat to Urijah Faber. Prior to the defeats, Caceres had gone undefeated in five straight bouts.

Rivera (10-4) is looking to get back on track after he suffered a controversial, submission loss to Faber in December. Rivera was poked in the eye shortly before Faber secured a fight ending, Bulldog Choke. The heavy handed fighter is 2-2, with 1 no contest, in his last 5 scraps.

UFC FN 68 will be headlined by a light-heavyweight bout between Ryan Bader and Daniel Cormier in the headliner.
