UFC Mackens Semerzier

Mackens Semerzier vs. Robert Peralta: Take two. On Thursday night, the UFC announced the featherweights will do battle once again when the Octagon makes its return to Australia.

At “UFC on FOX” this past November, Semerzier (Pictured) was rocked in the 3rdRound with what appeared to be a right hand. The fight was called after Peralta unleashed numerous shots to his dazed opponent’s dome.

However, the replay showed Semerzier took the brunt end of an accidental and illegal headbutt and that’s what caused him to drop.

Last month, the California State Athletic Commission overturned Semerzier’s controversial TKO loss to a no contest.

The Allphones Arena in Sydney hosts “UFC on FX: Alves vs. Kampmann.” FX will broadcast the card’s main bouts.

Here is the event’s current roster:

James Te Huna vs. Aaron Rosa

Oli Thompson vs. Shawn Jordan

Jake Hecht vs. TJ Waldburger

Mackens Semerzier vs. Robert Peralta

Kyle Noke vs. Jared Hamman

Nick Penner vs. Anthony Perosh

Cole Miller vs. Steven Siler

Constantinos Philippou vs. Court McGee

Joseph Benavidez vs. Yasuhiro Urushitani

Ian McCall vs. Demetrious Johnson

Thiago Alves vs. Martin Kampmann
