It is reported by Damon Martin that Dana White has said he is looking to book Mike Perry and Ben Saunders for UFC Fort Lauderdale on April 27th.
The card will be headlined by Jacaré Souza and Yoel Romero. Witch was originally supposed to be Yoel vs Paulo Costa until Yoel told Ariel Helwani that Costa had been popped by USADA.
Perry is currently 1-3 in his last 4. His last fight being a submission loss to Donald Cerrone back in November. He has a power striking fighting style and the ability to get the KO at any minute in the fight.
Saunders the Forth Lauderdale native , is 1-4 in his last 5 fights. Most recently being KO’d by Lyman Good at UFC 230. 17 out of Saunders’ 22 pro wins are all finishes.
Although Perry now trains at Jackson-Wink he once trained out in Florida as well. Making this somewhat of a homecoming for both fighters. An exciting scrap to look forward to on a stacked card.
Update: it’s being reported that both men are looking to be put on the card but not against each other.
