UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas to Feature Two Flyweight Bouts on June 15

So, guess what? Two flyweight matchups are making waves, set to light up the UFC Fight Night at the Apex in Las Vegas this June 15. It’s gonna be lit!

First off, we’ve got Alex Perez squaring off against Tagir Ulanbekov. And then, Nathan Maness is gearing up to throw down with Jimmy Flick. Talk about an action-packed lineup!

Now, here’s the scoop: Marcel Dorff of Eurosport NL spilled the beans on Perez vs. Ulanbekov over on X (you know, the artist formerly known as Twitter). Meanwhile, James Lynch was the one to drop the news about Maness facing Flick. Hot off the press, folks!

Perez? Well, he’s hit a bit of a rough patch, losing three straight. His last fight? A unanimous decision loss to Muhammad Mokaev back in March. Tough times, considering his earlier back-to-back Round 1 submission losses to Deiveson Figueiredo and Alexandre Pantoja. Ouch.

On the flip side, Ulanbekov’s coming in hot with back-to-back submission wins. He’s fresh off victories against Cody Durden and Nathan Maness. That win against Maness? It was a sweet comeback after a loss to Tim Elliott at UFC 272. Redemption, baby!

Now, about Maness. He’s stepping into the Octagon fresh off a Round 1 TKO win against Mateus Mendonca at UFC Fight Night 229. That victory was a much-needed comeback after a couple of losses. He’s been through the wringer, facing defeats against Ulanbekov and Umar Nurmagomedov. But hey, he’s back!

And then there’s Flick. This guy’s making a comeback after a Round 2 submission win over Malcolm Gordon at UFC 297 in January. A Dana White’s Contender Series alum, he’s had a mixed bag in the UFC, going 2-2. But remember his debut? A Round 1 flying triangle choke submission against Cody Durden. Epic.

So, there you have it. A quick rundown of what’s shaping up to be an explosive night at the UFC Fight Night. Can’t wait to see how it all goes down!
