Welterweights Mike Perry and Yancy Medeiros to square off at UFC 226

Welterweights Mike Perry and Yancy Medeiros to square off at UFC 226”

The UFC has booked another can't miss fight for its summer schedule, as the promotion's announced that Mike Perry and Yancy Medeiros are going to throw down.

Officials confirmed the matchup on Tuesday.

Medeiros (15-5, 1 NC) had a three-fight winning streak cut short when he came up against Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone in the main event of UFC Fight Night 126 in February 18 in Austin, Texas.

Perry (11-3) has suffered back-to-back defeats, after getting off to a 4-1 start in the UFC. Medeiros then bulked up to welterweight, and rattled off three straight victories (all stoppages), including what some consider last year's fight of the year against the larger Alex Oliveira.

Facing off against Perry, who is as game as Medeiros is for a brawl, this could easily be a "Fight of the Night" contender on a card headlined by heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic and light heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier, . The pair will collide at UFC 226, which goes down on July 7 in the MMA epicenter of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Perry will enter this fight on a tough, two-fight skid, having recently given up decisions to Max Griffin and Santiago Ponzinibbio.

The Hawaiian welterweight has gone the distance only four times in his career.
