UFC on Fox 1’s Semerzier vs. Peralta Changed to No Contest

Mackens SemerzierLast month’s UFC on Fox 1 bout between featherweights Mackens Semerzier and Robert Peralta has been changed to a no contest by the California State Athletic Commission, which ruled Tuesday that an accidental headbutt led to Peralta’s third-round stoppage of Semerzier.

The decision effectively removes the fight from both fighters’ records. Semerzier (6-3) previously won his UFC debut over Alex Caceres via first-round TKO after three-straight WEC losses, while Peralta (16-3), who edged Hiroyuki Takaya in his lone Strikeforce fight, topped Mike Lullo in his first UFC bout.

The UFC is expected to put together a rematch between Peralta and Semerzier in 2012.
