Semerzier vs. Peralta Rematch Among Six Bouts Confirmed for UFC on FX 2

Mackens SemerzierA rematch between featherweights Mackens Semerzier and Robert Peralta was announced for UFC on FX 2 on Thursday along with five other matchups previously reported for the March 3 event in Sydney, Australia.

Peralta knocked out Semerzier in their first meeting at UFC on Fox 1 in November, but the result was changed to a no contest after replays showed an accidental headbutt dropped Semerzier and led to the finish.

Peralta (15-3) previously topped Hiroyuki Takaya in Strikeforce and Mike Lullo in his UFC debut to push his win streak to eight, while Semerzier (6-3) submitted Alex Caceres for his first UFC win after dropping his final three WEC bouts.

Also confirmed for UFC on FX 2 were Anthony Perosh vs. Nick Penner, Kyle Noke vs. Jared Hamman, Cole Miller vs. Steven Siler, Jake Hecht vs. TJ Waldburger, and Shawn Jordan vs. Oli Thompson.

UFC on FX 2, which airs live in the U.S. on Friday, March 2 on FX (main card) and Fuel TV (prelims), is headlined by welterweights Thiago Alves and Martin Kampmann and flyweight semifinals Demetrious Johnson vs. Ian McCall and Joseph Benavidez vs. Yasuhiro Urushitani.
