Kevin Croom To Look For First UFC Win Against Alex Caceres on February 27th Card

Kevin Croom will look for his first UFC win on February 27th when fighting Alex Caceres on a “Fight Night” card. Danny Segura and Nolan King of MMA Junkie were the first to report the story.

The fight joins a card that does not have a confirmed location as of yet.

Croom had a quick UFC debut in September, stopping Roosevelt Roberts in less than a minute with a guillotine choke. That fight was later overturned after the Nevada Athletic Commission found marijuana in Croom’s drug test. Croom entered the fight on a three-fight win streak from 2019 to 2020 outside of the promotion.

Caceres had a strong 2020, picking up two wins in the year. He handed Chase Hooper his first loss as a pro in June, defeating him via decision at UFC 250.

Caceres defeated Austin Springer with a first-round rear naked choke finish in August. Springer stepped in for Giga Chikadze, who withdrew from the fight on short notice.

The featherweight bout joins a card that is currently scheduled to have a light heavyweight main event between Dominick Reyes and Jiri Prochakza. Here are the bouts that have been reported for the card.

Bout 7: Dominick Reyes (12-2) vs. Jiri Prochazka (27-3-1) (Light Heavyweight)
