The UFC is headed back to the APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, on June 15, 2024, for it's latest card, UFC Fight Night: Perez vs. Taira (also known as UFC Vegas 93).

Headlining the UFC Vegas 93 card will be a clash between flyweight contenders as the No.5-ranked Alex Perez takes on the undefeated Tatsuro Taira, who is ranked at No.13.

Alex Perez ended a three-fight skid with an emphatic second-round knockout of Matheus Nicolau back in April. He will hope to carry that momentum into this fight and put together another win streak to get back into title contention.

Tatsuro Taira will hope to extend his record to a perfect 16-0 when he headlines his first UFC card this weekend. The Japanese sensation is 5-0 under the promotion, with three of those victories coming via finish.

In his latest outing in December, Taira beat Carlos Hernandez via second-round TKO. He will now look to continue his climb up the divisional ladder with another statement-making performance.
