PIVOTAL BANTAMWEIGHT CLASH! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to San Diego, Calif., on Sat., Aug. 13, 2022, for the first time since 2015 with a pivotal battle between top-ranked Bantamweight contenders that will see No. 5-ranked Marlon Vera take on former champion and No. 8-seeded Dominick Cruz. In San Diego’s co-main event, Nate Landwehr and David Onama will collide in a Featherweight showdown between dynamic 145-pound hopefuls.

Don’t miss a single second of face-punching action!

Egger was in control of this “Prelims” fight from the opening bell. Young wasn’t able to defend the takedowns and did little to push Egger off of her when the action hit the ground. Egger kept the pressure up in the second, smacked Young up with a ton of punches, and earned the impressive finish.

Egger came up short in her UFC debut against rising contender Tracy Cortez one year ago so this victory was much needed for the 33-year-old prospect. With striking and grappling to boot Egger may be one to watch heading into 2022.
