Casey Returns to Face Alcantara

Back in the Octagon for the first time since July of 2014, former Ultimate Fighter 17 competitor Kevin Casey faces Brazil’s Ildemar Alcantara in a middleweight bout at San Diego’s Valley View Casino Center on July 15.

Currently on a four-fight unbeaten streak, jiu-jitsu ace Casey will be making his first start since a no contest with Bubba Bush at UFC 175 last July. In Alcantara, he will meet up with a fighter who has won two of his last three bouts, defeating Albert Tumenov and Richardson Moreira.
