Urijah Faber to clash with Alex Caceres at UFC 175 in Las Vegas
he'll be taking on one of the division's hotter fighters in Alex Cacares. They will square off at UFC 175 on July 5 in Las Vegas as part of the pay-per-view's main card. ESPN.com's Brett Okamoto broke the news on Wednesday afternoon, and the UFC confirmed it via Twitter a short time later.
The perennial contender Faber (30-7) is coming off a title bid against Renan Barao at UFC 169, in which "The California Kid" came up short for the third time (losing via first round TKO). Before then, though, he stormed back into contention under the tutelage of Duane Ludwig at Team Alpha Male, going a perfect 4-0 in 2013.
The 25-year old Caceres -- a.k.a. "Bruce Leeroy" -- is currently riding a five-fight unbeaten streak, and is coming off an impressive submission victory over Sergio Pettis in January.
