What time is UFC 301 on today? Live stream, schedule, card & more for Pantoja vs. Erceg in Brazil | Sporting News United Kingdom

An underdog, Steve Erceg is ready to shock the world at UFC 301. “Astro Boy” challenges Alexandre Pantoja in Brazil for the UFC featherweight title.

Erceg had a 9-1 record before joining the UFC in June 2023. The Aussie is on an eleven-fight win streak and is 3-0 in the octagon, his last contest being a knockout win in March against Matt Schnell. It is a last-minute fight for Erceg, ranked tenth in the UFC’s flyweight rankings. 

Per Bet MGM, Erceg is the +190 underdog. He will be at a disadvantage in the fight, especially with it being in Pantoja’s backyard. However, he looks to make the most of the opportunity.  

“I feel like I’ve made a career of saying yes to anybody, anywhere, anytime, and I’m willing to back myself for this one,” Erceg told The Sporting News. “In a perfect world, of course, you’d like maybe 12 weeks or something to that degree just to watch tape, technically prepare for certain things, change some stuff in your game, and then eight weeks out, you really push hard.

“I know I’ve put in a lot of work for a long time, I know what I’m capable of, and I’m excited to show it.”

Pantoja lost the semifinals of The Ultimate Fighter in 2016 but earned a contract with the UFC. Since that loss, he has gone 11-3 and is on a five-fight win streak. “The Cannibal” has eight wins via knockout and ten via submission, last beating Brandon Royval for a second time to retain the UFC flyweight title.
