LAS VEGAS — Three Iridium Sports Agency clients return to the Octagon on Saturday at UFC 290 in Las Vegas.
In Saturday’s Co-Main Event, Brandon “The Assassin Baby” Moreno defends his UFC World Flyweight Championship for the first time against Alexandre Pantoja. Brandon’s UFC record is 9-3-2 after back-to-back stoppage victories. The former Legacy Fighting Alliance champ’s overall record is 21-6-2 (11 submissions, five knockouts). Brandon – the first Mexican champ in UFC history – is hunting for his seventh Performance Bonus check, which would be the new record for UFC flyweights.
Edgar “Pitbull” Chairez and Tatsuro Taira collide in another must-see flyweight matchup. Edgar is entering the UFC's Octagon for the first time after winning the Fury FC flyweight title in March. His 10-4 record is comprised of six submissions and four knockouts. Tatsuro tries to climb to 4-0 in the UFC, and 14-0 overall. He's brought home Performance Bonuses in back-to-back bouts. The former Shooto FC champ’s resume includes seven submissions and three KOs.
