Gagnon Goes Down Under to Face Caceres
The UFC has announced a Bantamweight bout between two rising fighters: Mitch Gagnon and Alex Caceres. The two will face off on December 6th in Brisbane, Australia on UFC Fight Night 33
Both fighters are coming off victories last month at UFC 165 in Toronto, Ontario. Mitch Gagnon (10-2) submitted the previous unbeaten Dustin Kimura to win a $50,000 Submission of the Night bonus on the card. It was Gagnon’s second UFC bonus and second consecutive victory. The Sudbury, Ontario native is 2-1 in the Octagon – defeating Walel Watson and losing to Bryan Caraway in a Fight of the Night.
Alex Caceres, better known as Bruce Leeroy from The Ultimate Fighter 12, has gone 4-3 (1 No Contest) in his UFC career. In his last fight at UFC 165, Caceres upset Canadian Roland Delorme with a split decision victory. After initial struggles in the UFC, Caceres has started winning regularly.
