The Long Island native, Dennis Bermudez (15-5) is set to face off with Rony Jason (14-5-1) at UFC Fight Night 92. The event will take place in Salt Lake City, Utah, on August 6, 2016, at the Vivint Smart Home Arena.

Bermudez is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over Tatsuya Kawajiri at UFC Fight Night 83 in a fight that snapped a two-fight losing streak. Before two back-to-back losses against top fighters Jeremy Stephens and Ricardo Lamas, Bermudez was on a 7-fight winning streak with his only loss being his debut in the UFC against Diego Brandao on the TUF 14 finale.

“The Menace” is looking to get back to his winning ways and a victory over Jason will create another winning streak.
Jason has been sidelined from action dating back to May of 2015 due to testing positive for a diuretic. In his last bout, he impressivly submitted Damon Jackson in the first round with a triangle choke, but due to the fight being changed to a No Contest, his last victory in the Octagon was against Steven Siler which dates all the way back to March of 2014.

Jason’s current UFC record is 4-2-1 and with an unimpressive loss, I wouldn’t be surprised if he received a pink slip from the promotion. This is the type of matchup that has all the ingredients to be a very fun fight for the fans and both fighters will be stepping into the Octagon with something to prove.

 

Stay tuned for the latest news and updates revolving around UFC Fight Night 92.
