Sergio Pettis vs. Alex Caceres booked for UFC on Fox 10

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sp

A great Bantamweight match-up is set for UFC on Fox 10 in Chicago, as Sergio Pettis takes on Alex Caceres on January 25th.

It will be several more months before we see UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis defend his title, but in the mean time his little brother is lined up for a great fight on the upcoming Fox card next month in Chicago. As confirmed by the UFC (per the Milwaukee Sentinel-Journal) Sergio Pettis' 2nd fight in the UFC will be against Alex Caceres:

Pettis (10-0) is the youngest fighter in the UFC at just 20 years old. He made his much anticipated debut at UFC 167 against late replacement Will Campuzano, winning a unanimous decision. Pettis has flipped between flyweight and bantamweight throughout his brief career, but it looks like he's staying at 135 lbs in the UFC.

Caceres (9-5, 1 NC) is unbeaten in his last 4 fights (note that his win over Kyung Ho Kang is now a no contest after he tested positive for marijuana), and rallied from an early knockdown against Roland Delorme to win a split decision. "Bruce Leeroy" was scheduled to fight Mitch Gagnon in Australia, but Visa problems forced the Canadian off the card and ultimately Caceres.

This has high potential to be the most entertaining fight of the evening, and it's excellent matchmaking by Sean Shelby. With the main card already finalized, this bout will likely air on the Fox Sports 1 prelims. UFC on Fox 10 features a five round main event between Ben Henderson and Josh Thomson, with Gabriel Gonzaga and Stipe Miocic in the co-main.
