The Men's Flyweight Champion
A Natural Fit
It is with great excitement that we announce another UFC champion has joined our ranks. Hailing from Rio de Janeiro and with an enviable MMA record of 27 wins from 32 fights, Alexandre Pantoja is a wonderful addition to our roster. In 2023, he displayed all the courage, skill and determination we admire to defeat Brandon Moreno in a thrilling, five round battle at UFC 290 and took home the flyweight championship belt.
Having overcome Manel Kape, Brandon Royval, and Alex Perez in his three prior fights, ‘The Cannibal’ had more than earned his title shot and he gained it in magnificent style against a man he’d already beaten once in UFC. At UFC 296, our man delivered an equally impressive performance in his first title defence as he once again defeated Royval in an epic, five-round war. We anticipate even more fireworks from our man in 2024.
Heart of a Champion
Having never been finished in his MMA career, it’s clear that our man has the heart of a champion and a never-say-die attitude. As one of two Brazilian champions currently in the organisation, he is carrying the torch for a nation that has a proud history in UFC, and we can’t wait to continue that journey with him.
Pantoja comes into this partnership off the back of three straight performance bonuses and it is that exciting style that makes him a great match for Stake. We deliver the biggest and best UFC promotions, and we look forward to welcoming new players and fight fans alike to enjoy all the action.
