Alex Caceres has quietly won three straight inside the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Octagon and four of five overall since mid-2018. Now, “Bruce Leeroy” will look to go for his fourth straight as he is in line to face Kevin Croom in his next outing.
Indeed, MMA Junkie reports that the two Featherweights are targeted to face off at an upcoming “Fight Night” event on Feb. 27, 2021, at a location that has yet-to-be determined, though Las Vegas, Nevada, seems to be the likely destination.
Croom is also currently riding a three-fight win streak, though it would have been four straight had he not tested positive for marijuana following his win over Roosevelt Roberts in his Octagon debut back in Sept. 2019. As a result, the victory was overturned to a “No Contest” by Nevada State Athletic Commissions (NSAC).
The ESPN+-streamed event is set to feature a pivotal Light Heavyweight bout between Dominick Reyes vs. Jiri Prochazka. Also on the card, Alex Oliveira will face Randy Brown while Raphael Assuncao takes on Raoni Barcelos.
