Another featherweight bout has been added to the UFC 156 card on February 2nd in Vegas. Robert Peralta will face off with Akira Corassani in a battle of 145ers that are currently undefeated in the UFC. Swedish MMA site MMAnytt.se broke news on the fight over the weekend.
Peralta (16-3, 1 NC) has picked up wins in two of his three UFC fights, with one overturned to a no contest after an accidental headbutt. His last bout, a 23-second knockout of Jason Young at UFC on Fuel 5, was undoubtedly his best performance to date. Corassani (10-3, 1 NC) was a TUF 14 contestant who picked up a split decision win over Andy Ogle in his only official UFC bout to date.
