BLOCKBUSTER BANTAMWEIGHT BATTLE! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Newark, N.J., for the first time in more than three years on Sat., May 6, 2023, with a blockbuster Bantamweight collision inside Prudential Center that will see Aljamain Sterling attempt another successful title defense against returning two-division titleholder and former gold medal-winning Olympic wrestler, Henry Cejudo. In UFC 288’s last-minute pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event, former Welterweight title challenger, Gilbert Burns, locks horns with No. 4-seeded contender, Belal Muhammad, in a five-round, 170-pound No. 1 contender eliminator match.

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

The first round was a feeling out period for both men as Tuivasa plodded forward with jabs and Sakai countered with hard leg kicks. Things quickly heated up in the second when Tuivasa landed a beautiful combination that backed Sakai up along the cage. “Bam Bam” kept swinging and connected with a ferocious right hand. Sakai collapsed to the ground and the fight was over.
