Alex Caceres has been booked to fight Kevin Croom in a featherweight bout at UFC Fight Night on Feb. 27. Location for the event has yet to be announced. This was first reported at MMAJunkie.com.
Croom was scheduled to fight Caceres for his promotional debut at UFC Fight Night 175 back in August, but was forced to withdraw from the bout. Croom did make his UFC debut in back in September defeating Roosevelt Roberts with a guillotine choke at UFC Fight Night: Waterson vs. Hill. This win was later overturned to a no contest by the Nevada Athletic Commission after he tested positive for marijuana. Caceres is riding a three-fight wining streak with his last win against Austin Springer via Rear Naked Choke at UFC Fight Night: Smith vs. Rakic.
