UFC Fight Night: Rodríguez vs. Caceres (also known as UFC Fight Night 92) was a mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship held on August 6, 2016, at Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah.[2][3]



The event was the first that the organization has hosted in Utah.[2]

The promotion previously scheduled an event for Salt Lake City in August 2010 for UFC Live: Jones vs. Matyushenko. However, the event was moved to San Diego, California due to lower than anticipated ticket sales in the Utah market.[4]

A featherweight bout between The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America featherweight winner Yair Rodríguez and Alex Caceres served as the event headliner.[5][6]

Brad Tavares was very briefly linked to a bout with Thales Leites at the event. However, Tavares was forced out of the fight with a rib injury and was replaced by Chris Camozzi.[7]

Justine Kish was expected to face Maryna Moroz at the event. However, Kish pulled out of the bout on July 22 due to a spiral fracture of her finger.[8] She was replaced six days later by promotion newcomer Danielle Taylor.[9]

This was the last UFC event to be promoted by Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta.
