Mixed martial arts careerEdit
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.
Ultimate Fighting ChampionshipEdit
Peralta defeated Mackens Semerzier on November 12, 2011 at UFC on Fox 1. 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.
A bout with Akira Corassani, previously linked to UFC 156, was moved April 6, 2013 at UFC on Fuel TV 9, after an illness sidelined Corassani for a time. 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.
