A new fighter will make his way in the Octagon, as Robert Peralta faces Mike Lullo at UFC Fight Night 25 on September 17.

Featherweight fighter, Robert Peralta, has inked a deal with UFC and will make his debut at UFC Fight Night 25 against Mike Lullo. He will step in for the injured Mackens Semerzier, who was forced to withdraw due to hand injury.

A former Gladiator Challenge 145-pound title holder, Robert Peralta is known for spoiling Hiroyuki Takaya’s Strikeforce debut via split decision. That victory extended to seven-fight win streak, with six of those coming via knockout or submission. Mike Lullo, on the other hand, went down a scale after losing to Edson Barboza last November. The said defeat snapped his eight-fight win streak.

UFC Fight Night 25: Battle on the Bayou will go down on September 17 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. Spike TV will broadcast the main card which will feature a welterweight battle between Jake Shields and Jake Ellenberger.
