A longtime lightweight standout who has competed around the globe since debuting in 2000, Kawajiri's move to featherweight division in 2011 has paid dividends, as he's won seven of eight bouts. Fresh from a December win over Jason Knight, Kawajiri will be in tough again with New York's Bermudez, who has won seven of his last nine bouts, including victories over Max Holloway, Jimy Hettes and Clay Guida.
