LAS VEGAS – After a hot start to his professional MMA career, Miguel Baeza finds himself trying to snap a two-fight losing skid.
Baeza, a Dana White’s Contender Series alum, scored finishes of Hector Aldana, Matt Brown and Takashi Sato to kick off his UFC tenure but has since suffered back-to-back setbacks to Santiago Ponzinibbio and Khaos Williams.
Baeza (10-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) had his moments in those losses, but the 29-year-old knew he had to change things up in order to get back to winning ways.
“Just seeing some people for my health,” Baeza told MMA Junkie and other reporters at Wednesday’s media day. “Seeing some professionals to help me stay on the best possible track when it comes to my career and changing some things in my personal life as well.”
He continued, “Sports psychologist, it’s a laundry list of things. I changed a lot of my life in order to keep pursuing this dream because it really is a dream to be here, and I do believe that I’m one of the best fighters in the world, so I gotta go out there and show it Saturday.”
Baeza will look to rebound when he faces Andre Fialho (14-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) Saturday at UFC on ESPN 34, which takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The main card airs on ESPN and streams on ESPN+ following prelims on ESPN+.
