A few months ago, we predicted that Alex Perez was going to beat Matheus Nicolau at +145 odds. Guess what? Our betting pick won! Fast-forward to June 15, 2024, and Perez is fighting against Tatsuro Taira at UFC Fight Night 242 in Las Vegas. And once again, he’s seen as an underdog.

Will Perez upset the odds one more time? Read our Perez vs. Taira prediction to see what our top pick is for the UFC Vegas 93 main event.  

Before Betting on Alex Perez vs. Tatsuro Taira UFC Fight

As we correctly predicted, Alex Perez ended his three-fight losing streak last April with a Ko win over Matheus Nicolau. As a result, the former UFC Flyweight title challenger is now 25-8 overall. Given that he’s still in his early 30s, Perez still has every right to hope to get another shot at the championship belt in the future.

For that to happen, he needs to keep on winning. The bad news for him is that the Perez vs. Taira odds suggest that he’s not going to do it at UFC Fight Night 242. He’s seen as a +145 underdog in the eyes of bookies.

The reason is that his Japanese rival is undefeated in his professional career. Taira is 15-0 with five wins since joining the UFC.

Tatsuro Taira’s portfolio is impressive, but he’s never fought against a ranked opponent. Meanwhile, each of Alex Perez’s four opponents was in the Top 15 Flyweight when he fought them. That’s why we expect him to derail the Taira hype train on June 15.

Pick: Alex Perez (+150)
