The stage is set for Yair Rodriguez to headline his first ever Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) card tomorrow (Sat., Aug. 6, 2016) at UFC Fight Night 92 live from Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah. His opponent, former TUF standout Alex Caceres, will attempt to overthrow one of the quickest rising prospects in mixed martial arts (MMA) today.
For Rodriguez, 23, this is a huge opportunity to showcase his magnificent striking skills on the grand stage. Caceres isn't the type of fighter to dodge a standup battle so Rodriguez should have ample time to land heavy offense and impress in his first main event billing.
But before the action unravels tomorrow at UFC Fight Night 92, the promotion has opened up its vault, released throwback footage of Rodriguez smashing Andre Fili at UFC 197 and given fight fans something to watch before "El Pantera" meets "Bruce Leeroy" in one of the most underrated headliners of 2016.
The full fight video can be seen above (courtesy of UFC).
