Manel Kape delivered yet again in his return to the Octagon earlier tonight (Sat., Dec. 4, 2021) at UFC Vegas 44 live on ESPN/ESPN+ from inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, when “Starboy” dismantled Zhalgas Zhumagulov via first-round TKO (punches).

TOP RANKED MIDDLEWEIGHT STANDOUTS COLLIDE! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) kicks off 2023 with another exciting event inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., Jan. 14, 2023, headlined by No. 7-ranked Middleweight contender, Sean Strickland, who steps up on super short notice to lock horns with No. 12-seeded Nassourdine Imavov. In UFC Vegas 67’s co-main event, Bantamweight bangers Umar Nurmagomedov and Raoni Barcelos hook ‘em up for a spot in the 135-pound title chase.

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

Both flyweights came out on fire and exchanged at an incredible rate. Zhumagulov seemed to gain the upper hand early with some really nice straight punches, but Kape ended up catching him with a slick left-right combo. Zhumagulov fell to the canvas in a heap and when he returned to his feet Kape unloaded an insane barrage of punches along the cage. Kape’s output was so quick that it looked like the fight was playing in fast forward. Zhumagulov eventually fell to the ground and the fight was stopped.

Kape, who is a former RIZIN bantamweight champion, has now captured two impressive finishes in a row, having stopped Ode’ Osbourne with a flying knee knockout this past August. “Superboy” is as talented as any flyweight in the world so it will be interesting to see how long he can keep this hot streak up as he pushes his way into the top 15.
