Rivera vs. Caceres Set for June 6

 
Bantamweight contenders looking to return to the win column, number 11-ranked Francisco Rivera and 15th-ranked Alex Caceres will face off in UFC Fight Night action at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans on June 6.

Tickets for UFC Fight Night, which is headlined by the light heavyweight matchup between Daniel Cormier and Ryan Bader, go on sale on Friday, April 10. The card will air live on FOX Sports 1.

Unbeaten in six straight before hard-fought losses to Takeya Mizugaki and Urijah Faber, California's Rivera expects to start another winning streak this June, but the always-exciting Caceres, who saw his own hot streak snapped by defeats against Faber and Masanori Kanehara, is just as hungry for a return to top-notch form.
