Filipino UFC fighter CJ de Tomas has been booked for UFC Fresno.

UFC Fight Night 123 is set for Fresno, California on December 9 and is slowly coming together. UFC officials confirmed today with DojoDrifter.com that CJ de Tomas (6-1) would take on Alex Perez (18-4) on the said card.

De Tomas is coming off a loss in his UFC debut at UFC Fight Night Singapore last June, falling to Naoki Inoue via unanimous decision. The former Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC) flyweight champion will look to bounce back in his second UFC fight.

Perez, on the other hand, is riding a five-fight win streak and will make his UFC debut against De Tomas in Fresno. He boasts three wins via TKO/ KO and five via submission.

Additionally, according to MMAJunkie.com, a lightweight bout between Scott Holtzman and Darrell Horcher and a middleweight bout between Eryk Anders and John Phillips have also been added to the Fresno card.
