Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., Oct. 23, 2021, with a highly-anticipated match up in the Middleweight division, as No. 2-ranked contender Paulo Costa returns to action against No. 5-seeded Marvin Vettori. In UFC Vegas 41’s Lightweight co-main event, Grant Dawson looks to remain undefeated in UFC when he locks horns with Ricky Glenn

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.
