UFC action returns this weekend, with the iconic moments of UFC 300 still reverberating across the sport. UFC Fight Night: Nicolau vs. Perez will be live from the UFC APEX in Las Vegas on Saturday, April 27, with the main card beginning at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN+, ESPN, ESPN Deportes & SiriusXM Fight Nation. The prelims start the action at 4 p.m., available on ESPN+, ESPN2 & SiriusXM Fight Nation.

Main Event:

Top ten flyweights face off as No. 5 Matheus Nicolau takes on No. 8 Alex Perez in an electric bout between The Ultimate Fighter and Dana White’s Contender Series alumni. Nicolau (19-4-1), a member of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil, a powerful striker and current flyweight co-record holder for most knockdowns in a single fight, looks to make his case for a title shot. Perez (24-8), who was awarded a UFC contract on the inaugural season of Dana White’s Contender Series, currently holds the shortest average UFC fight time among active flyweights alongside 10 first-round finishes, both of which he looks to improve on with a statement win.

Co-Main Event:

Hard-hitting light heavyweights No. 11 Ryan Spann and rising contender Bogdan Guskov collide in a thrilling battle. Spann (21-9), who has appeared on two seasons of Dana White’s Contender Series being awarded a UFC contract in 2018, aims to add to his 15 first-round finishes and derail Guskov’s momentum. Guskov (15-3) currently holds a perfect 100% finish rate as he enters Saturday with a chance to secure the biggest win of his career.
