Winner of three of his four UFC bouts, Japanese veteran Tatsuya "The Crusher" Kawajiri will seek another Octagon victory on Feb. 21, when he faces top ten-ranked Dennis "The Menace" Bermudez in an important featherweight bout at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh.
In the UFC Fight Night main event, which airs live on FOX Sports 1, Donald Cerrone moves up to the welterweight division to face Tim Means. Tickets go on sale on January 22.
A longtime lightweight standout who has competed around the globe since debuting in 2000, Kawajiri's move to featherweight division in 2011 has paid dividends, as he's won seven of eight bouts. Fresh from a December win over Jason Knight, Kawajiri will be in tough again with New York's Bermudez, who has won seven of his last nine bouts, including victories over Max Holloway, Jimy Hettes and Clay Guida.
