Sterling vs. Caraway Set for May 29

 


Unbeaten bantamweight contender Aljamain Sterling has been putting on the full court press to secure a fight with fellow 135-pound standout Bryan Caraway, and on May 29, he'll get it, as the two meet in a UFC Fight Night bout at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

The card, which airs on FOX Sports 1, is headlined by another highly-anticipated bantamweight showdown between unbeatens Thomas Almeida and Cody Garbrandt.

Currently ranked fourth in the bantamweight division, Long Island's Sterling sports a perfect 12-0 record that has seen him secure UFC wins over Cody Gibson, Hugo Viana, Takaeya Mizugaki and Johnny Eduardo. It's a formidable lineup, but the "Funk Master" will be put to the test by the eighth-ranked Caraway, whose 20-8 record includes victories over the likes of Eddie Wineland, Erik Perez and Mitch Gagnon.
