After ending a two-fight skid and likely saving his UFC job, Jason Young (9-5 MMA, 1-2 UFC) next will fight in his home country.
The English fighter is scheduled to meet fellow 145-pounder Robert Peralta (15-3 MMA, 1-0 UFC) in September at UFC on FUEL TV 5.
Young today announced the fight via Twitter.
UFC on FUEL TV 5 takes place Sept. 29 at Capital FM Arena in Nottingham, England. The main card airs live on FUEL TV (Saturday afternoon in the U.S.) following prelims on Facebook. Young vs. Peralta likely will be part of the preliminary card.
Young signed with the UFC a year ago but then suffered decisions losses to Dustin Poirier and Michihiro Omigawa in his first two outings. Despite the defeats, he got a third UFC fight and made the most of it while defeating Eric Wisely via unanimous decision at UFC on FUEL TV 2. Link
