Alex Caceres

“I knew I hurt him, but I didn’t want to get antsy. I didn’t want to rush because he is good on the ground. He’s a talented guy and he has a lot of moves and locks on the ground, so I wanted to take my time and make sure I was in good position. 

“Once I escaped that heel hook and took his back, I slipped my hand under his throat and knew I had him good, and was able to submit him.”

Sergio Pettis

“I am very disappointed with myself. I stuck to the game plan, but I couldn’t finish him. I promise my fans that I am going back to the gym to improve my game and get back and reload.”

    Exposed!!! Baby Pettis will have a hard career, Caceres is lower mid-tier fighter.

    • Jonathan Parsons

      calling bruce leeroy a lower mid-tier fighter you are iggnorant. Anyone in the UFC is elite. MMA universe is much bigger than just the UFC. It takes a lot to even make it into the ufc. Fighting is very dynamic anything can happen each fighter always has a chance to win.

        In the UFC Caceres is a lower mid-tier fighter. Not everyone in the UFC is elite, if that were the case once fighters leave the UFC they would dominate in other organizations. Which isn’t the case for the most part. If you put Caceres in Bellator he doesn’t win the tournament and beat Dantas.
