Jeka Saragih has another new opponent for UFC Fight Night 232. This is the third fighter that the Indonesian has been booked to face Lucas Alexander at the Apex Centre on November 18th.
Alexander (8-3) is the man stepping in to replace Charlie Campbell, who was a replacement for Jesse Butler. The Brazilian earned a decision win on his UFC debut earlier this year.
Saragih (13-3) reached the final of the Road to UFC tournament. He was beaten by Anshul Jubli but did enough to earn himself a contract with the promotion.
On November 18th he will be competing as a contracted UFC fighter for the very first time. The Indonesian will be dropping down to featherweight for this fight.
