Main Event:

  • 5 ranked UFC flyweight Alex Perez and No. 13 Tatsuro Taira collide in the main event. Perez (25-8), who currently holds the second shortest average UFC fight time among active flyweights (6:10), steps into his third UFC main event looking to continue the trend and add to his 10 career first-round finishes. Taira, 15-0 overall and 5-0 in his UFC career, aims to move up in the rankings and remain undefeated with an emphatic win.

Co-Main Event:

  • Middleweights go head-to-head in the co-main event as Ikram Aliskerov squares off with Antonio Trocoli. Aliskerov (15-1), a Dana White’s Contender Series alum who hasn’t lost a fight since his only defeat in 2019, intends to keep his streak intact with an eighth consecutive victory overall and his third in UFC. Trocoli (12-3), making his UFC debut, aims for a strong performance in the Octagon hoping to add Aliskerov’s name to his resume.
