Undefeated Australian Stewart Nicoll to Debut Against Jesus Aguilar at UFC 305 in Perth

July 10, 2024
Flyweight prospect Stewart Nicoll (7-0) has been booked for his Ultimate Fighting Championship debut in August.

The undefeated Australian will make his promotional debut against Jesus Santos Aguilar (10-2) in front of a home crowd at UFC 305 on Aug. 17 at the RAC Arena in Perth, Australia. The matchup was first reported by MMAjunkie.com.

Nicoll’s UFC signing was initially announced by "From the Stands” and confirmed by Beatdown Promotions, where he has fought for most of his career.

“Stoked to see the man that has worked so hard and consistently for years to achieve a dream. Stayed the course. Well done [Stewart Nicoll],” wrote UFC alum and Beatdown Promotions owner Damien Brown on Instagram.

Nicoll has finished six of his career wins so far — four via technical knockout and two by way of submission. A former Xtreme Fighting Championships flyweight champion, Nicoll most recently scored a first-round TKO win over Japan’s Issei Kitano at Beatdown Promotions 6 this past March.

Meanwhile, Mexico’s Aguilar had an eight-fight winning streak snapped by a first-round submission loss against Taisuro Taira in his UFC debut in February 2023. The 28-year-old has since bounced back with a first-round knockout of Shannon Ross followed by a split-decision win over Mateus Mendonca.
