For Dennis Bermudez, UFC Fight Night 92 is an opportunity to shine on the big stage.
Bermudez meets Rony Jason in the co-main event from Salt Lake City, Utah. The bout airs live as part of the FOX Sports 1 main card.
The 29-year-old Bermudez (15-5) picked up his eighth Octagon win when he bested Tatsuya Kawajiri recently, improving to 8-2 overall with the promotion. He views Jason as another challenge to pass in his quest.
“He likes to throw highlight reel strikes, knees, spins. I’m just not going to be there,” Bermudez said. “You’re going to see a different Dennis. Some of my weaknesses have been being too aggressive. I’ve got 15 minutes to torture a guy.”
Despite being one of the higher ranked fighters competing on the card, Bermudez isn’t upset about not being in the main event. That role goes to Yair Rodriguez and Alex Caceres.
“I don’t know how that happened. I guess because Alex has been a main event before and they’re trying to hype him up,” he said. “At the end of the day, the lights go on and I’ve got to show up. I don’t care if I’m first or last, as long as people are watching.”
