Team Iridium Preview for UFC Vegas 90



LAS VEGAS — Seven Iridium Sports Agency clients, including Chris “The Action Man” Curtis in the Main Event, enter the Octagon at UFC Vegas 90 on Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.


Chris is hunting for his second straight UFC victory against Brendan Allen in a highly anticipated rematch in the middleweight division. Chris is the No. 14 contender at 185 pounds, while Allen holds the No. 6 spot. Chris defeated Allen via second-round KO in 2021 – one of his six victories in the UFC’s Octagon. The former CES MMA champ’s 31-10, 1 NC record is comprised of 15 KOs, three submissions and three Performance Bonuses.


In Saturday’s Co-Main Event, Alexander “The Great Ape” Hernandez and Damon “The Leech” Jackson meet in a must-see showdown in the UFC’s featherweight division. Alexander is hunting for his seventh UFC victory and fourth Performance Bonus, while Damon is looking to score his sixth win in the Octagon and third Performance Bonus. Alexander is 14-7 (six KOs, two submissions). A former champ with Legacy Fighting Alliance and Legacy Fighting Championship, Damon boasts a record of 22-6-1, 1 NC (15 submissions, four KOs).


The unbeaten César "Cesinha" Almeida is ready to make a killer first impression in his highly anticipated UFC debut against Dylan Budka in the middleweight division. César's 4-0 record includes three first-round KOs. He was a world champion professional kickboxer before transitioning to MMA, with a notable victory over former UFC champ Alex Pereira.


Pedro "Pedrinho" Falcão makes his hotly anticipated UFC debut on short-notice against Victor Hugo in the bantamweight division. Pedro is 16-3 on the strength of five straight victories. His resume includes six KOs and five submissions.


Christos "The Spartan" Giagos is primed to bring home his seventh UFC victory and third Performance Bonus against Ignacio Bahamondes in lightweight action. The former Tachi Palace Fights champion’s 20-11 record includes eight knockouts and four submissions.


Chepe "Machine Gun" Mariscal is eager to up his UFC record to 3-0 against Morgan Charriere in the featherweight division. Chepe is 15-6, 1 NC on the strength of five straight wins. His body of work includes seven KOs, three submissions and a title reign with Hoosier FC.
