Robert "Robbie" Peralta (born January 1, 1986) is an American mixed martial artist who is currently under contract with the UFC.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Peralta made his professional MMA debut in March 2007. He lost his debut by submission, but quickly amassed a record of 13 wins and 3 losses over the next few years. A majority of his fights have been in the California-based independent promotion Gladiator Challenge.

Strikeforce[edit]

In April 2011, Peralta made his Strikeforce debut by upsetting current DREAM featherweight champion Hiroyuki Takaya at Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley via split decision.

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

In early September 2011, Peralta signed with the UFC to replace Mackens Semerzier against Mike Lullo at UFC Fight Night: Shields vs. Ellenberger.[3] He won the fight via unanimous decision.

Peralta defeated Mackens Semerzier on November 12, 2011 at UFC on Fox 1.[4] It was officially recorded as a TKO victory for Peralta though replays later showed that an accidental headbutt dropped Semerzier and allowed Peralta to flurry and earn the stoppage. The fight was later ruled a no contest by the California State Athletic Commission.[5]

Peralta was linked to a bout with Charles Oliveira on January 20, 2012 at UFC on FX 1.[6] However, UFC officials scrapped the bout.

A rematch with Semerzier was expected to take place on March 3, 2012 at UFC on FX 2.[7] However, Peralta was forced out of the bout with a toe injury and replaced by Daniel Pineda.[8]

Peralta fought Jason Young on September 29, 2012 at UFC on Fuel TV 5.[9] Peralta won the fight via KO 23 seconds into the first round.

A bout with Akira Corassani, previously linked to UFC 156,[10] was moved April 6, 2013 at UFC on Fuel TV 9, after an illness sidelined Corassani for a time.[11] Peralta lost to Corassani via decision after three rounds. Peralta was suspended for six months after the fight for failing the post fight drug test and testing positive for marijuana.[12]

Peralta faced Estevan Payan on December 28, 2013 at UFC 168.[13] After a back-and-forth first two rounds, Peralta won via knockout early into the third round.

Peralta faced Rony Jason on May 31, 2014 at The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 Finale.[14] He won the back-and-forth fight via split decision.

Peralta faced Thiago Tavares on August 16, 2014 at UFC Fight Night 47.[15] He lost the fight via submission in the first round.
