Two of the UFC’s best flyweights will meet in a pivotal battle this summer.
Askarov (14-0-1) is the UFC’s No. 2-ranked flyweight. Following a run as ACB champion, the 28-year-old has continued his winning ways inside the octagon, scoring victories over Joseph Benavidez, Alexandre Pantoja, and Tim Elliott. Notably, he fought to a draw with current UFC champion Brandon Moreno in his 2019 UFC debut.
Perez (24-6) returns for the first time since his failed title challenge against Deiveson Figueiredo at UFC 255, which he lost via first-round submission. Currently ranked No. 4 in the UFC’s flyweight division, Perez has won six of his eight octagon appearances, highlighted by victories over Jussier Formiga, Jordan Espinosa, and Mark De La Rosa.
