Kevin Borjas vs. Edgar Chairez added to Noche UFC at Sphere

Noche UFC at Sphere in Las Vegas continues to take shape with the addition of a fun flyweight matchup.

On Sept. 14, Kevin Borjas will meet Edgar Chairez at UFC 306, the event also known as Riyadh Season Noche UFC. The one-off event at the unique venue in Las Vegas will be a celebration of Mexican Independence Day. MMA Junkie confirmed the matchup with multiple sources, although the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.

Peru’s Borjas (9-3 MMA, 0-2 UFC) will look for his first victory under the UFC banner. After his unanimous decision win on Dana White’s Contender Series, Borjas was signed to the UFC but has struggled in his first two appearances, losing a unanimous decision to Joshua Van at UFC 295 in November and a TKO loss to Alessandro Costa at UFC 301 in May.

Mexico’s Chairez (11-5 MMA, 1-1 UFC) aims to keep the momentum going after his first win in the promotion. In his first outing of the year in February, Chairez submitted Daniel Lacerda with a triangle choke. It was the second meeting between the two after the first was declared a no contest in September due to a premature referee stoppage.

With the addition, current Noche UFC lineup includes:

  • Irene Aldana vs. Norma Dumont
  • Anthony Hernandez vs. Michel Pereira
  • Yazmin Jauregui vs. Ketlen Souza
  • Kevin Borjas vs. Edgar Chairez
