Team Iridium Preview for UFC Vegas 91



LAS VEGAS — Five Iridium Sports Agency clients, including former UFC World Flyweight Championship challenger Alex Perez in the Main Event, are eager to showcase their skills Saturday at UFC Vegas 91 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.


Alex is hunting for his seventh UFC victory against Matheus Nicolau in Saturday’s headliner. Alex is the No. 8 contender in the UFC flyweight division, while Nicolau occupies the fifth spot on the rankings. The former Tachi Palace flyweight champ’s record of 24-8 includes seven submissions, five knockouts and a pair of $50,000 Performance Bonuses.


Maheshate Hayisaer is ready to bring home his second UFC victory and second Performance Bonus against Gabriel Benítez in their lightweight showdown. The Contender Series vet is 9-3, with four KOs and a submission on his resume.


Austin "Thud" Hubbard has his sights set on his fourth UFC win as he takes on Michal Figlak in the lightweight division. Austin is 15-7 (five KOs, two submissions). He was a runner-up on the most recent season of The Ultimate Fighter and previously held championships with Legacy Fighting Alliance, Caged Aggression and Hoosier FC.


James "Goku" Llontop makes his hotly anticipated UFC debut against Chris Padilla in lightweight action. James is going for his 13th straight victory. The former Fusion FC champ is 14-2 (seven KOs, one submission) after earning a UFC contract in his most recent fight at Contender Series.


David "Silent Assassin" Onama looks to improve to 4-2 in the UFC with a second straight knockout victory over Jonathan Pearce in the featherweight division. His 11-2 record is comprised entirely of stoppages (seven KOs, four submissions). He's looking to pocket his fourth Performance Bonus.
