There is live action from the UFC Apex tonight.

A flyweight contest headlines the latest UFC Fight Night at the Apex tonight. 

It will put Matheus Nicolau against Alex Perez with both men looking to get back into title contention. 

Nicolau has not fought since losing to Brandon Royval last year, and with the Brazilian fifth in the flyweight rankings, a win would get his UFC title aspirations back on track. 

Perez has already tasted what it is like to challenge for a UFC title after losing to Deiveson Figueiredo in 2020, and after losing his following two contests, Perez will be hoping this poor run of form inside the Octagon can come to an end on Saturday night.
