The sparks will fly tomorrow night (Sat., Nov. 7, 2020) at UFC Vegas 13 live on ESPN+ from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, as No. 1 ranked light heavyweight contender Thiago Santos makes his long-awaited Octagon return against former title challenger Glover Teixeira in a crucial main event.
While current UFC light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz is expected to fight Israel Adesanya early next year this weekend’s matchup between Santos and Teixeira could still produce the next 205-pound title challenger. Both have championship fight experience and are eager to get another crack at UFC gold.
Adding to the UFC Vegas 13 mix will be a co-main event heavyweight clash between former UFC champion Andrei Arlovski and rising contender Tanner Boser. Fight fans will also get to see promising up-and-coming talent like Brendan Allen, Yan Xiaonan, Raoni Barcelos, Trevin Giles, and Alexander Romanov.
In preparation for the action the promotion has unveiled some of the best finishes from UFC Vegas 13’s fighters. This includes Teixeira’s one-punch knockout over Rashad Evans, Barcelos’ UFC debut finish over Kurt Holobaugh, Arlovski’s history submission of Tim Sylvia, and Santos’ lethal destruction of Jimi Manuwa.
All of these and more can be seen in the above video player.
Fight fans will have to wait and see if any additional finishes will be added to this highlight reel following the conclusion of Saturday’s event.
