The action delivered in waves last night (Sat., Aug. 29, 2020) at UFC Vegas 8 live on ESPN+ from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, as Aleksandar Rakic led the way with a main event beatdown of former light heavyweight title challenger Anthony Smith (highlights HERE).
In addition to Rakic’s main event victory, undefeated welterweight prospect Sean Brady captured his third-straight UFC win with a scary guillotine choke, and a new-look Alex Caceres kept his winning ways going with a first-round submission stoppage. Fight fans also got to see women’s strawweight Polyana Viana score a slick first-round armbar to keep her career finish rate at 100 percent.
Not to mention the come-from-behind submission finish by Mallory Martin and the brutal slugfest between veteran featherweight Ricardo Lamas and Octagon newcomer Bill Algeo.
