MASSIVE MIDDLEWEIGHT MATCH! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) makes its highly anticipated return to Sydney, Australia, for the first time in five years on Sat., Sept. 9, 2023, with a 185-pound world title fight inside Qudos Bank Arena. In the ESPN+-streamed pay-per-view (PPV) main event, Middleweight roost-ruler, Israel Adesanya, plans to silence No. 5-seeded contender, Sean Strickland. In UFC 293’s hard-hitting Heavyweight co-main event, No-6-ranked fan favorite, Tai Tuivasa, locks horns with towering Russian, Alexander Volkov (No. 8).

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

This “Prelims” clash started out sort of slow as both fighters tried to find their range. Villante was more patient than usual, but he didn’t land much. It allowed Barnett to find his rhythm and launch a ridiculous spinning wheel kick in the second round. The kick caught Villante on the top of the head and the New York native fell to the canvas. Barnett followed up with a barrage of strikes before the referee stepped in for the TKO stoppage.
