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!

Pereira had to show a little more than just his striking in early going as Michailidis pinned him up against the cage and tried to take him down. “Poatan” didn’t easily keep Michailidis off of him, but he did good enough to limit any damage. At the start of Round 2 Pereira launched a devastating flying knee that caught Michailidis flush on the chin. Michailidis fell to the canvas and Pereira followed for a few extra shots before the official stoppage.
