ERIK PEREZ DEFEATS BYRON BLOODWORTH AT UFC 155
Three UFC appearances, three first round victories for VFD Sports star Erik Perez. The Monterrey, Mexico native won his most impressive fight to date last night at UFC 155 in Las Vegas. Cheered on by thousands of his fellow countrymen, Perez dominated the fight from the beginning, scoring a takedown of Bloodworth and never letting his opponent recover.
Perez's undefeated run to open his UFC career is beginning to get major attention. Fighting at 135 pounds, many fighters simply do not have the power to be able to deliver first-round knockouts, yet this has proven to be a staple of Perez's game.
As the only Mexican-born fighter in the UFC, look for Perez to continue to carry the UFC hopes of millions into what is priming to be an explosive 2013.
