Dolidze Vs. Pereira Added To UFC Louisville

Michel Pereira is getting his step up in competition.

MMA Fighting confirmed today that a Middleweight contender bout between No. 11-ranked, Roman Dolidze (12-3), and No. 13-ranked Pereira (31-11, 2 no contests) has been added to UFC Louisville on June 8, 2024. Eurosport was first to report the match up.

The fight will be pivotal for each fighter for different reasons. Brazil’s Pereira extended his winning streak to eight when he scored a 54-second guillotine choke victory (watch highlights) over Ihor Potieria at UFC 301 this past weekend (May 4, 2024). Dolidze, on the other hand, will look to snap a two-fight losing skid against Pereira after setbacks to Marvin Vettori and Nassourdine Imavov.

UFC Louisville will be a big night for Middleweight contenders as the main event features the higher-ranked pairing of Imavov and one-time title challenger, Jared Cannonier. Two other bouts are currently on tap at 185 pounds.
