Alex Caceres is known as “Bruce Leeroy” in the cage and this 31-year-old fighter came from Miami, Florida. He stands at five-foot-nine and holds a 15-12 professional MMA record with seven of those wins from decisions. Caceres made his mark in the UFC in March 2011 but it took him some time before coming up with wins. From July 2012 to January 2014, he won four straight fights but after that, Caceres lost three straight. He has struggled to stay afloat after that as his next nine matches was a see-saw ride. Caceres is coming off a win in UFC on ESPN 4 against Steven Peterson via unanimous decision and hopes to capitalize on that.
Chase Hooper is a very young fighter at 20-years-old and hails from Enumclaw, Washington. He trains at Combat Sports & Fitness and he is an undefeated fighter with a 9-0 record with four wins through submissions. Hooper is known as “The Teenage Dream” and stands at six-foot-one. He made his mark in multiple fight organizations such as CFFC, Square Ring Promotions, COGa and Cagesport among others. Upon getting discovered in Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series in July 2018, it took him a few years after making his debut in UFC 235 back in December 2019. He won his UFC debut fight against Daniel Teymur via first-round TKO.
