The UFC has located a last-minute replacement for injured Mackens Semerzier. Robert Peralta has agreed to make his big league debut against Mike Lullo at “UFC Fight Night 25: Battle on the Bayou,” which finalizes the card’s 12-bout roster exactly one week before showtime.
Semerzier was recently forced out of his featherweight contest against Lullo with an undisclosed injury.
The event takes place September 17th inside the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. A welterweight scrap between Jake Shields and Jake Ellenberger will headline the UFC’s second-to-last fight card on Spike TV.
A middleweight contest with “The Ultimate Fighter 11” winner Court McGee and Dongi Yang will serve as the night’s co-featured contest.
Spike will broadcast the event’s main card starting at 9PM ET/PT.
