The UFC Fight Night 92 event in Salt Lake City, Utah, now has a significant portion of its fight card set, as six fights for the Aug. 6 event were confirmed during Wednesday’s latest episode of UFC Tonight on Fox Sports 1.

Headlining the event in a five round featherweight matchup is a bout between Alex Caceres and Yair Rodrigues, while the previously announced bout between Cub Swanson and Tatsuya Kawajiri will serve as the co-main event.

Caceres, who entered the UFC in 2011 out of The Ultimate Fighter 14, gets his first main event fight in the UFC in his 15th fight in the organization. He’s riding a two fight winning streak, and looked especially impressive on short notice earlier this month in a decision win over Cole Miller. Rodrigues, winner of The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America, has been increasingly impressive throughout his four fight UFC run, most recently taking out Andre Fili in April with a “Knockout of the Year” candidate off a flying head kick at UFC 197.

The other four fights confirmed for the event – the UFC’s first ever trip to the state of Utah – see Utah’s own Court McGee take on Dominique Steele, while Zak Cummings faces Santiago Ponzinibbio, Marcin Tybura meets Victor Pesta, and Chris Camozzi fights Thales Leites.
