"Bruce Leroy" is coming to Seattle. UFC executives officially announced that "The Ultimate Fighter 12" cast member Alex Caceres is dropping to 145 pounds and faces WEC import Mackens Semerzier at "UFC Fight Night 24: Ortiz vs. Nogueira." The 22-year-old Caceres makes his official UFC debut after an often-controversial run on "The Ultimate Fighter 12: Team GSP vs. Team Koscheck." While the athletic Caceres looked impressive in two submission wins while in the house, his brash, cocky attitude often drew the ire of his housemates. Caceres ultimately was eliminated in the quarterfinals by eventual finalist Michael Johnson. Nevertheless, Caceres showed enough promise to warrant a return call from the UFC, and he was expected to face Nam Phan on the season's live finale, though an injury suffered in training forced him to delay his octagon debut. Meanwhile, Semerzier enters the UFC on a rare three-fight losing streak under the Zuffa banner.

I don't think Mackens and Caceres could put on a boring fight if they tried. I'd assume Mackens is taking the fight pretty serious with his job on the line. Might not be a fun introduction for Alex.

I hope Semerzier ruins Caceres' life. He was an annoying bastard on the show.
