Perez (25-8 MMA) recently returned to the win column in emphatic fashion back in April, where he scored a sensational knockout victory over Matheus Nicola (see that here). That loss snapped a three-fight losing skid for the former flyweight title challenger, as Perez had previously suffered defeats at the hands of Deiveson Figueiredo, Alexandre Pantoja and Muhammad Mokaev.

Tatsuro Taira (15-0 MMA) currently boasts a perfect 5-0 record inside of the Octagon, his most recent win being a TKO victory over Carlos Hernandez this past December. The Japanese standout will be looking to enter title contention with a win over Perez this evening in Sin City.

UFC Vegas 93 is co-headlined by a bantamweight bout between Douglas Silva de Andrade (29-5 MMA) and Miles Johns (14-2 MMA).

‘D’Silva’ last fought and defeated Cody Stamann (21-7 MMA) by unanimous decision in May of last year.

‘Chapo’ is hot off a unanimous decision win over Cody Gibson (19-10 MMA) this past March.
