Ultimate Fighting ChampionshipEdit
At UFC 110, the UFC's debut event in Australia on February 20, 2010, Perosh filled in as a late replacement for Ben Rothwell against famed fighter Mirko Filipovic. Perosh had only two days to prepare. A few high-profile fighters were asked to fill in, such as Randy Couture and Rampage Jackson, but Perosh took the fight in the understanding that he would gain a four-fight contract with the UFC if he was victorious. During the fight with Mirko Filipovic doctors called an end to the fight at the end of the second round, when Perosh was bleeding profusely from a cut sustained midway through the 2nd round by a vicious elbow from Mirko Filipovic. Although he lost Perosh was given a four-fight contract from the UFC. On March 27, 2010, Perosh announced he would be undergoing knee surgery in the coming weeks, and that his next fight in the UFC would take place some time in September.
