Four months after his famous victory over Ken Stone at UFC 150, VFD Sports athlete Erik Perez will step inside the Octagon for the third time in his career, this time facing Byron Bloodworth at the super-stacked UFC 155 fight card on December 29th.

Bloodworth is coming off a loss to Mike Easton, and will definitely try to prove his worth as a fighter against Perez.

Erik “El Goyito” Perez is currently on a two-fight win streak in the UFC, after making his promotional debut back in June with a submission victory over John Albert at The Ultimate Fighter 15 Finale. Victory over Byron Bloodworth would take Erik Perez one step closer towards his ultimate goal of becoming a champion in the UFC.


Goyito is currently the only fighter Mexican fighter competing in the UFC. Perez’s 17-second knockout over Ken Stone at UFC 150 was the fastest KO/TKO finish in both UFC and WEC Bantamweight division history.

UFC 155 takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event is headlined by the UFC Heavyweight title fight between Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez.
