Six Team Iridium hammers ready to ring in the new year Saturday at UFC Vegas 46
LAS VEGAS — Six Iridium Sports Agency clients are ready to turn heads at the first UFC event of 2022 at Saturday’s UFC Vegas 46 card in Las Vegas.
TJ “Downtown” Brown goes for his second straight UFC victory against Gabriel Benitez in the featherweight division. A win will propel TJ’s record to 16-8. Thirteen of the Contender Series alumni's 15 victories are by stoppage.
Joseph “Uglyman” Holmes makes his highly anticipated UFC debut against Jamie Pickett in the middleweight division. Joseph was awarded his UFC contract by Dana White immediately following his most recent victory for Fury FC. Joseph is undefeated in seven fights – all stoppages – since dropping his 2019 pro debut at Bellator 218.
Saidyokub Kakhramonov makes his hotly anticipated return to the UFC’s Octagon to battle Brian Kelleher in the bantamweight division. Saidyokub improved to 9-2 in his triumphant Octagon debut, which was his third straight stoppage victory. Seven of Saidyokub’s nine wins are by finish.
Brandon “Raw Dawg” Royval takes aim at his third UFC victory against Rogerio Bontorin in the flyweight division. Both of Brandon’s previous UFC wins came by submission and netted him $50,000 fight night bonuses. A victory will propel the former Legacy Fighting Alliance flyweight champion’s record to 13-6, with all but one of his wins coming by stoppage.
Vanessa “Lil Monster” Demopoulos and Silvana “La Malvada” Juárez meet in a battle of top strawweight prospects. Vanessa hunts for her first UFC victory, bringing a 6-4 record into battle. Four of her victories are by stoppage, including a 37-second KO that punched her ticket to the UFC. Silvana, meanwhile, is ready to make a statement in her second trip to the Octagon. She boasts an impressive 10-3 record, with eight wins by stoppage.
