UFC 306 Update: Michel Pereira, Anthony Hernandez to Clash at The Sphere

July 3, 2024
A middleweight showdown pitting Michel Pereira against Anthony Hernandez is on tap for UFC 306.

Pereira initially announced the booking via social media on Tuesday. UFC 306 — also known as Noche UFC — takes place on Sept. 14 at The Sphere in Las Vegas. The card, which doesn’t yet have a headliner, is expected to be Mexican Independence Day-themed. UFC CEO Dana White has promised to provide a one-of-a-kind experience for the event.

One of the most flamboyant performers in the Las Vegas-based promotion, Pereira has won his last eight Octagon appearances. “Demolidor” is 2-0 thus far in 2024, with first-round submission victories against Michal Oleksiejczuk and Ihor Potieria to his credit.

Hernandez, meanwhile, will carry a five-bout UFC winning streak into the matchup with Pereira. Most recently, “Fluffy” secured a second-rouns submission triumph over Roman Kopylov at UFC 298 on Feb. 17. The Dana White’s Contender Series alum was supposed to face Roman Dolidze at UFC 302 but had to withdraw from the event due to a torn ligament in his hand.
