Background[edit]

Baeza first dabbled in mixed martial arts in 2011 as an amateur, compiling a record of 4–0 before turning professional in 2015. Baeza holds a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt.[2]

After going 6–0 on the regional circuit, Baeza was invited to compete on Dana White's Contender Series on week 3 of season 3. He faced Victor Reyna and won the bout via unanimous decision, a victory that earned him a UFC contract.[3]

Baeza made his UFC debut at UFC Fight Night 161 on October 12, 2019, facing Hector Aldana. Baeza was victorious via second round technical knockout.[4]

Baeza then faced veteran Matt Brown on May 16, 2020 at UFC on ESPN 8. Baeza rallied back after being dropped in the first round, finishing Brown via technical knockout in the second round.[5] This win earned Baeza his first Performance of the Night award.[6]

Baeza was set to face Mickey Gall at UFC Fight Night 178.[7] However on September 11, Gall pulled out due to an injury.[8] He was replaced by Jeremiah Wells.[9] On September 17, it was announced that the bout was canceled due to undisclosed reasons.[10]
