Legacy Fighting Alliance champion Markus Perez has received the call, as he’ll face Eryk Anders at UFC Fight Night 123.
Perez replaces John Phillips, who was forced out of his Octagon debut with Anders for December. Anders (9-0) announced the change on social media.
Anders picked up a win over Rafael Natal earlier this year in his UFC debut, as the former University of Alabama football player scored his seventh career stoppage victory.
Perez (9-0) won the LFA middleweight title when he defeated Ian Heinisch this past September.
