UFC: Nicolau vs. Perez Time Date Venue

The main event of the most recent UFC Fight Night at the Apex is a flyweight match. Alex Perez and Matheus Nicolau will square off in an attempt for a resurgence as champions.

Nicolau lost to Brandon Royval in his flyweight debut, and since the Brazilian is currently ranked fifth, a victory would help him resume his pursuit of a UFC championship.

Perez will be hoping that this bad run of results inside the Octagon can end on Saturday night. Perez has already experienced what it is like to challenge for a UFC title after losing to Deiveson Figueiredo in 2020. Perez also lost his next two fights.
