Medeiros (15-5, 6-5) is coming off a second-round TKO loss to Donald Cerrone in his first main event fight in February.
Perry (11-3, 4-3) has lost his last two fights by unanimous decision.
Medeiros was 3-0 at 170 pounds before the loss to Cerrone.
UFC 226 will be held as part of International Fight Week in Las Vegas and will take place at T-Mobile Arena.

Current UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway is a possibility for the card as well. Holloway will defend his title against Brian Ortega in his next bout that hasn’t been scheduled yet.
