Undefeated welterweight prospect Mike Perry has signed with the UFC and he will be replacing Sultan Aliev against Hyun Gyu Lim next weekend at UFC 202.
The fight change was recently announced by the UFC.
UFC 202 will come from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on August 20 and will be headlined by a rematch in the welterweight division as Nate Diaz meets current UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor.
Perry (6-0) has won all of his fights by TKO/KO and four of those wins have come in the first round. His most recent win came in May as he defeated David Mundell by knockout in the second round. Lim (13-5-1) is coming off a lost against Neil Magny at UFC Fight Night 66 last year and is 3-2 in the UFC. His last win came nearly two years ago as he defeated Takenori Sato at UFC Fight Night 52.
