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!

Ontiveros was dropping down from middleweight and his power really shined early as he clipped Garcia multiple times. Luckily for Garcia, he was able to utilize his wrestling to regain momentum and break Ontiveros down with heavy ground-and-pound. Garcia finished his efforts in the second round from full mount with a barrage of punches that forced the referee to step in and save a bloodied Ontiveros.
