Alex Perez Asked for Fight Against Eric Shelton at UFC on FOX 28
After six years and over 20 fights into his MMA career, flyweight Alex Perez was finally able to make his breakthrough into the UFC in 2017.
“They told me basically Dana White picked the winner; it could be one, it could be none; and for the contract you need to go out there and look impressive,” Perez told MMAWeekly.com.
“I asked to fight (Shelton) because he’s one of the toughest guys in the division,” Perez said.
“My goal is to hopefully win three fights this year and hopefully make it to the Top 10.”
