Post "Bruce LeRoy" vs. Mackens Semerzier officially added to UFC Fight Night 24 - 01-22-2011, 06:02 PM

"Bruce Leroy" is coming to Seattle.

UFC executives officially announced that "The Ultimate Fighter 12" cast member Alex "Bruce Leroy" Caceres (4-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) is dropping to 145 pounds and faces WEC import Mackens Semerzier (5-3 MMA, 1-3 WEC) at "UFC Fight Night 24: Ortiz vs. Nogueira."

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) initially reported the fight earlier this month.

Featuring a light heavyweight matchup between longtime veterans between Tito Ortiz and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, "UFC Fight Night 24: Ortiz vs. Nogueira" takes place March 29 at Seattle's KeyArena and airs on Spike TV.

The 22-year-old Caceres makes his official UFC debut after an often-controversial run on "The Ultimate Fighter 12: Team GSP vs. Team Koscheck." While the athletic Caceres looked impressive in two submission wins while in the house, his brash, cocky attitude often drew the ire of his housemates.

Caceres ultimately was eliminated in the quarterfinals by eventual finalist Michael Johnson. Nevertheless, Caceres showed enough promise to warrant a return call from the UFC, and he was expected to face Nam Phan on the season's live finale, though an injury suffered in training forced him to delay his octagon debut.

Meanwhile, Semerzier enters the UFC on a rare three-fight losing streak under the Zuffa banner. After shocking the MMA world in his WEC debut by submitting Wagnney Fabiano in October 2009, Semerzier since has suffered decision losses to Cub Swanson and Deividas Taurosevicius, as well as a submission loss to Javier Vazquez sandwiched in between.

However, the 30-year-old Virginian's efforts have been game in each contest, and he's been given a shot at redemption in the UFC's octagon. The bout is likely do or die for Semerzier.
