FLYWEIGHT FRACAS! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., Oct. 15, 2022, with an intriguing women’s Flyweight contenders’ bout that will see No. 5-ranked Alexa Grasso and No. 6-seeded Viviane Araujo look to make a statement in their first-ever UFC main event. In UFC Vegas 62’s co-main event, all-action Bantamweight veterans collide as Cub Swanson faces Jonathan Martinez inside the Octagon.

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

Shevchenko did pretty good in the early going by defending some clinches and even gaining top control for a few hard shots of her own, but O’Neill wouldn’t be denied the entire fight. In Round 2, O’Neill scored a takedown and immediately started to unload heavy elbows and punches. She eventually moved into full mount and unloaded for about a minute before the referee finally stepped in.
