Welcome to FightLine’s live coverage of UFC Fight Night 92.
Tonight’s card comes to us from the Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah with bouts airing on UFC Fight Pass and FOX Sports 1.
This marks the first official UFC event in Utah, as a previous one set for 2010 was moved to San Diego due to poor ticket sales. That card ended up featuring Jon Jones defeating Vladimir Matyushenko in the main event.
As for our headline act tonight, featherweights Yair Rodriguez and Alex Caceres will meet in a scheduled five-round contest.
Rodriguez, a former winner of The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America, is 7-1 in his career and 4-0 with the UFC. He has scored wins over Andre Fili, Dan Hooker, Charles Rosa and Leonardo Morales.
Caceres (12-8) was a competitor on The Ultimate Fighter 12 and has spent the last five years fighting in the Octagon. He has gone 7-6 with a no-contest, but is on a two-fight win streak.
Along with that contest, Dennis Bermudez meets Rony Jason in another featherweight affair, along with Thales Leites vs. Chris Camozzi, Santiago Ponzinibbio vs. Zak Cummings, Trevor Smith vs. Joe Gigliotti and Maryna Moroz vs. Danielle Taylor.
Four other prelim bouts will air on FS1 including Court McGee-Dominique Steele, Viktor Pesta-Marcin Tybura, David Teymur-Jason Novelli and Teruto Ishihara-Horacio Gutierrez.
Comprising the early UFC Fight Pass prelims will be Cub Swanson-Tatsuya Kawajiri and Chase Sherman-Justin Ledet.
