On Saturday, Aug. 6, the UFC hosted UFC Fight Night 92: Rodriguez vs. Caceres from the Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City.
In the night’s main event, The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America featherweight winner Yair Rodriguez battled fellow TUF alum Alex Caceres. The 23-year-old Rodriguez entered the bout having won six straight, including four in a row inside the Octagon. He was most recently in action at UFC 197, where he knocked out Andre Fili by second-round head kick. Caceres, meanwhile, looked to build off the momentum of his most complete performance to date. “Bruce Leeroy” dominated veteran Cole Miller at UFC 199 in June, running his winning streak to two.
The co-main event also featured action in the 145-pound division as TUF 14 runner-up Dennis Bermudez took on TUF Brazil winner Rony Jason. Bermudez snapped a two-fight skid in February with a decision win over Tatsuya Kawajiri, whereas Jason had been out of action since 2015 following a failed post-fight drug test.
The 12-fight event kicked off Saturday with two preliminary card bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 7 p.m. ET. Four additional preliminary card bouts followed on Fox Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET, with the six-fight main card taking place at 10 p.m. ET, also on Fox Sports 1.
