UFC officials announced the news via the Houston Chronicle.
Former UFC flyweight title challenger Chris Cariaso (17-7 MMA) will be looking to snap a two-fight losing skid when he meets Pettis in Texas this fall. “Kamikaze” is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Henry Cejudo, which he suffered at March’s UFC 185 event.
Meanwhile, Sergio Pettis (12-2 MMA) will also be looking to rebound, this after suffering a TKO loss to Ryan Benoit in his most recent performance at UFC 185. Prior to the setback, “The Phenom” had earned back-to-back decision wins in the UFC’s bantamweight division over opponents Yaotzin Meza and Matt Hobar.
UFC 192 takes place October 3 live from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. The event is headlined by a light heavyweight title fight featuring champion Daniel Cormier taking on challenger Alexander Gustafsson.
