LFA Champion Markus Perez to replace John Phillips for UFC Fight Night 123

Current LFA Middleweight champion Markus Perez is slated to make his UFC Debut against Eryk Anders at UFC 123.

Eryk Anders made the announcement on his Twitter account after he previously stated on Sunday that John Phillips was pulling out of the bout.


Both prospects will be looking to extend their undefeated record of 9 wins and no losses. Anders made his UFC debut in July, in which he knocked out longtime veteran Rafael Natal in the 1st round. On the other hand, Perez, who is coming off a 1st round submission win against Ian Heinisch will be looking to make a statement on 4 weeks notice.

UFC Fight Night 123 will be taking place on the 9th of December in Fresno, California. It will be headlined by FW contenders Cub Swanson (5th) and Brian Ortega (10th).
