Alex Caceres looks to get things moving in the right direction again, while local product Sean Woodson aims to give the Missouri faithful something to cheer about early in the main card.

Year 14 on the roster commences for Caceres with the TUF alum looking to bounce back after suffering a unanimous decision defeat in an entertaining, competitive bout with Giga Chikadze last August in Singapore. He had won seven of eight before that contest and remains a formidable test for anyone looking to break into the Top 15 in the featherweight division.

After punching his ticket to the UFC roster with a knockout win over Terrance McKinney on Season 3 of Dana White’s Contender Series, Woodson has built a 5-1-1 record through his first seven UFC starts. He enters off a split decision win over Charles Jourdain in January, and could potentially break into the rankings with another big effort on Saturday.

This is going to be a fascinating battle between two men that like to use their range, but attack with different weapons. Caceres throws a lot more kicks than Woodson, who prefers to box, so it will be interesting to see who is able to set the tone early and how the other adjusts over the course of the contest.
