BLOCKBUSTER BANTAMWEIGHT BATTLE! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Newark, N.J., for the first time in more than three years on Sat., May 6, 2023, with a blockbuster Bantamweight collision inside Prudential Center that will see Aljamain Sterling attempt another successful title defense against returning two-division titleholder and former gold medal-winning Olympic wrestler, Henry Cejudo. In UFC 288’s last-minute pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event, former Welterweight title challenger, Gilbert Burns, locks horns with No. 4-seeded contender, Belal Muhammad, in a five-round, 170-pound No. 1 contender eliminator match.

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

It was all Amirkhani in the early going as the grappler was able to take Murphy down and score some valuable top time. Murphy told his corner after the first round that he was just getting started and boy did he change things up in the second. The moment Amirkhani shot in for another takedown Murphy connected with a beautiful knee. Amirkhani toppled to the canvas and Murphy landed a few insurance shots before the referee stepped in.
