UFC 301 takes place on May 4 at Rio Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Those concerns were put to rest when the UFC announced the main event for that card. UFC flyweight champion Alexandre Pantoja puts his title on the line in his home country against Western Australia’s Steve Erceg at the top of the UFC 301 card.

Start time: 10 p.m. ET (Main card)

Pantoja won the UFC 135-pound belt in July with a split-decision victory over Brandon Moreno. The 33-year-old Brazilian defended his crown in December with a unanimous decision victory over Brandon Royval.

Earlier this month, Pantoja made it clear that he wanted to compete at UFC 301 and that his opponent was a secondary concern.

“Royval ruptured a ligament (beating Moreno in February). and I just beat him. Manel Kape missed weight for his fight against (Matheus) Nicolau. (Amir) Albazi has just had surgery,” said Pantoja. “In fact, my division is one of the most competitive. If you put me against the 20th ranked guy, he has a good chance of giving me a hard fight.”

The UFC did not have to go too far down the rankings to find a foe for the champion. Erceg is the No. 10 fighter in the official UFC flyweight rankings.

The 28-year-old Erceg is 12-1 in his career. He is coming off a March 2 knockout win over Matt Schnell.

Earlier this week, Erceg said he expected the UFC to go another route for the UFC 301 main event, but that he would be ready if the promotion gave him the nod.

“It is super fast (the turnaround), but I told you I wanted to get to the title as fast as I can,” Erceg told MMA Junkie. “I assume they’re probably going to give it to (Muhammad) Mokaev, even off of his poor performance just because that’s what Pantoja asked for. But if they call me, I’m going to step up. I’m here to show that I’m the best fighter in the world, so two days, eight days, five weeks, whichever it is, I’ll show up and put on a show.

UFC 301 takes place at Rio Arena on May 4, 2024. The main card streams on ESPN+ pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and early prelims on ESPN+. A middleweight bout between Michel Pereira and Makhmud Muradov is currently listed as the evening’s co-main event.
