Roman Dolidze vs Michel Pereira joins UFC Louisville card in June

Middleweights Roman Dolidze & Michel Pereira clash at UFC Fight Night: Cannonier vs Imavov

The bout between Roman Dolidze and Michel Pereira has been reportedly added to UFC Fight Night: Cannonier vs Imavov. The MMA event takes place at KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, KY on June 8. The pair squares off at middleweight.

Dolidze (12-3) was originally scheduled to face Anthony Hernandez at UFC 302 in Newark, NJ on June 1. The bout fell off due to hand injury suffered by the latter. The 35-year-old native of Georgia looks to return to winning ways after suffering a pair of defeats by decision against Nassourdine Imavov and Marvin Vettori.

Pereira (31-11, 2 NC) is riding an eight-fight winning streak. Brazil’s 30-year-old won a pair of fights in 2024 via first-round submission against Ihor Potieria and Michal Oleksiejczuk.

The fight was reported by Eurosport’s Marcel Dorff via post on X. The promotion is yet to confirm the matchup.
