BANTAMWEIGHT BASH! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., Sept. 17, 2022, with a meaningful 135-pound showdown between top-ranked division contender, Cory Sandhagen, looking to blunt the rise of surging prospect, Song Yadong.

Coming off a disappointing loss to Shana Dobson it was key that Agapova showed improvements in her game against Mazo. Agapova was able to do just that by controlling her aggression, picking her shots, and peppering Mazo with strikes in bunches. Agapova did this for 10-straight minutes before finding a home for a brutal right hand in Round 3. Mazo fell to the canvas and Agapova jumped on her back for the quick submission finish.
