Despite offering just seven total fights amidst a flurry of positive COVID-19 tests, UFC Vegas 9 still delivered the goods last night (Sat., Sept. 5, 2020) live on ESPN+ from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, as MMA legend Alistair Overeem earned a fifth-round TKO win over streaking contender Augusto Sakai (highlights HERE).
In addition to Overeem’s main event finish, former UFC title challenger Ovince Saint Preux scored a fabulous one-punch knockout over Alonzo Menifield (see it again HERE), veteran fighter Brian Kelleher ended his late-notice opponent with a 39-second guillotine (highlights HERE), and welterweight striker Michel Pereira looked tremendous in a third-round submission win over Zelim Imadaev (watch that HERE).
Not to mention the first-round submission finish by Andre Muniz over veteran Bartosz Fabinski. That can be seen HERE.
