UFC is looking to book a fight between Mike Perry and Daniel Rodriguez for their upcoming April 10th event. The matchup was first reported by Sergio Pineiro of FighterPath.
The location for the event is not confirmed at the moment.
Rodriguez had a busy 2020, joining the UFC and competing under their banner four times. He was able to win his first three bouts, including a submission win against Tim Means and a first-round stoppage against Dwight Grant.
Rodriguez’s momentum was stopped late in the year, as Nicolas Dalby took a unanimous decision win over him at UFC 255.
