Return to UFC
When Ben Rothwell was forced out of his UFC fight with Croatian striker Mirko Filipovic on February 20, 2010 at UFC 110: Nogueira vs. Velasquez, in Australia, only two days before the fight, Perosh, an Australian native replaced him in a heavyweight batte.
Doctors called an end to the fight with Crocop at the end of the second round, as Perosh was bleeding from a cut sustained midway through the 2nd round by a vicious elbow from his opponent. Although he lost, Perosh was given a four-fight contract with 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 2010.
In his UFC light-heavyweight debut at UFC 127: Penn vs. Fitch, Perosh quickly defeated Tom Blackledge to finally capture his first win in the UFC. He won the fight by rear-naked choke at 2:45 of the first round in front of his home town crowd in Sydney.
Perosh was expected to face Joey Beltran on December 15, 2012 at UFC on FX 6: Sotiropoulos vs. Pearson in Australia. Perosh was forced from the bout, however, with a toe injury and replaced by Igor Pokrajac.
