Derek Brunson pushed his current win streak to four last night (Sat., Mar. 20, 2021) at UFC Vegas 22 live on ESPN/ESPN+ from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nev., when the middleweight contender outlasted rising star Kevin Holland for a unanimous decision win (highlights HERE).

In addition to the middleweight headliner, a slew of main card and “Prelims” fighters turned in solid performances inside of the Octagon. Check them out below:

  • Bruno Silva cashed in on his first UFC victory with a second-round TKO finish over Octagon newcomer J.P. Buys
  • Bantamweight contender Montel Jackson made quick work of Jesse Strader with a first-round TKO win (see it HERE)
  • Rising prospect Grant Dawson made good on his lightweight debut with a last-second knockout win over Brazilian veteran Leonardo Santos
  • Heavyweight knockout specialist Tai Tuivasa welcomed Harry Hunsucker to the Octagon with an impressive first-round TKO (watch it HERE)
  • Adrian Yanez impressed yet again in his sophomore appearance as the rising bantamweight contender stopped Gustavo Lopez with a one-punch knockout
