Former UFC Bantamweight Erik Perez Signs With Combate Americas Promotion

According to MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani, former UFC Bantamweight contender Erik “El Goyito” Perez has signed with Combate Americas Promotion.

For the past five years, Erik Perez has been fighting under the UFC banner. During his run, Erik Perez accumulated a 7-2 record with notable victories over John Albert, Edwin Figueroa, Francisco Rivera and his most recent fight against Felipe Arantes. Despite an impressive 7-2 octagon record and riding a two-fight winning streak, Erik Perez decided to not re-sign with the UFC following his split-decision win over Felipe Arantes last November.

Upon signing with the promotion, Ariel Helwani also mentioned that the winner of the upcoming $100,000 Bantamweight Tournament could face Erik Perez at some point in 2018.
