Jussier Formiga

Jussier Formiga and Alex Perez added to UFC 250

Flyweights Jussier Formiga and Alex Perez are the latest addition to UFC 250 on June 6.

Combate first reported the match up, although the UFC has yet to make an official announcement. 

Formiga is making a quick turnaround after suffering the first losing streak of his career. The 35-year-old lost by unanimous decision to Brandon Moreno at UFC on ESPN+ 28 on March 14. 

Previously, Jussier Formiga had a four-fight win streak snapped with a TKO loss to Joseph Benavidez at UFC on ESPN 3 in June 2019. 

Perez is on the other side of the spectrum after winning two-consecutive bouts. He most recently choked out Jordan Espinosa in the first round at UFC on ESPN+ 24 on Jan. 25. Before, Perez picked up a unanimous decision against Mark De La Rosa at UFC on ESPN 2 in March 2019. 

Perez is 5-1 inside the octagon with a lone TKO loss to Benavidez at The Ultimate Fighter 28 Finale in November 2018. 

UFC 250 is still without an official location. The UFC recently announced the May 23 card is slated for Las Vegas, Nevada. UFC 249 takes place this Saturday, May 9 in Jacksonville, Fla. It is the first of three events this month scheduled for the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena. 

The main card will be available on pay-per-view, while the prelims will likely air on ESPN and ESPN+.

The card also includes a women’s featherweight title fight between champion Amanda Nunes and challenger Felicia Spencer.
