Ecuadorian Marlon Chito Vera has been asking since 2021 for the opportunity to face former bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz. That moment has come, as this Saturday, August 13, he will risk his rise in the 135-pound ranking when he faces The Dominator in the main event of UFC San Diego, in the cage installed at Pechanga Arena.

David Onama against Nate Landwehr in the co-main event, as well as Yazmín Jauregui and Iasmin Lucindo in the minimum weight, promise to leave the octagon warm so that Vera and Cruz can do their thing.

The UFC San Diego card will be broadcast from 3:00 p.m. (Ecuadorian time) with the preliminary stage for Star +, ESPN2 and UFC Fight Pass subscribers and from 6:00 p.m. the stellar stage for Star +, ESPN2 and UFC subscribers Fight Pass.

For this Wednesday, Vera and Cruz are scheduled to participate in Media Day at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina. The official weigh-in will take place on Friday morning and the ceremonial weigh-in will take place in the afternoon at the Pechanga Arena.

“I want to be (UFC bantamweight) world champion, so I’m going to win this fight, I’m going to finish Cruz… I’m getting to the point of the road to the title. But first things first: finish off Cruz, beat him up, show my level and take the belt to Ecuador one day,” the Chone fighter said defiantly at the UFC Español microphone.
