UFC Vegas 93: Full card, start time and where to watch as Tatsuro Taira defends perfect record

Tatsuro Taira has made a perfect start to his UFC career, and he will be looking to continue his fine run against Alex Perez this Saturday night.

Since arriving at the UFC in May 2022, Taira has demolished his opposition, winning all five fights for the organisation – three of them by stoppage.

Most recently, the Japanese mixed martial artist knocked out Carlos Hernandez last December in Las Vegas.

Taira returns to Sin City as he prepares to take on the experienced Alex Perez.

The American was last in action last April as he snapped a three-fight losing run with a knockout victory over Matheus Nicolau.

Perez’s three defeats came against top class opposition. His losing run began back in November 2020 when he challenged for the UFC Flyweight championship against Deiveson Figueiredo.

Losses to Alexandre Pantoja and Muhammad Mokaev followed during a tough period for Perez.

Despite this, the 32-year-old is now looking for his second straight victory as he looks to forge his way forward in the division.
