Jussier Formiga takes on Alex Perez at UFC 250
It’s going to be a quick rebound for UFC flyweight contender Jussier Formiga. After dropping a unanimous decision back in March, the Brazilian jiu-jitsu blackbelt reportedly already has another bout lined up.
According to Combate, Jussier will now take on rising prospect Alex Perez at the new UFC 250 card, on June 6. Originally, the event was meant to happen in Brazil, on May 9, but it ended up postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic, which opened up the spot for UFC 249 to take its place on the calendar instead.
Now, Formiga is reportedly expected to meet Perez at UFC 250, on June 6, in a place yet to be determined. The card is scheduled to be headlined by a female featherweight title fight between the champion, Amanda Nunes, and chalenger Felicia Spencer.
