Steve Erceg silenced any doubters about his ability to compete with the UFC’s elite flyweights on Saturday, by pushing champion Alexandre Pantoja to his limits at UFC 301.

The challenger, who was tapped for a title shot in just his fourth UFC appearance, outscored and bloodied Pantoja in multiple exchanges on the feet. But, Pantoja controlled more of the action via nine takedowns and his top game and was awarded the unanimous decision victory.

In the co-main event, Jose Aldo demonstrated that he remains a significant threat at bantamweight, by outscoring rising contender, Jonathan Martinez. The 37-year-old Aldo, who retired from MMA competition in 2022, outstruck Martinez throughout the fight and was awarded the bout by all three judges.

Martinez had won six-straight heading into the card.

Here are the complete results for UFC 301, which took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
