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 26 wins from 31 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. Pantoja now looks forward to his first title defence in a rematch with Royval at UFC 296 and we anticipate more fireworks from our man as he looks to end the year in style.
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 the only Brazilian champion 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.
