The mid-afternoon action delivery earlier today (Sat., Apr. 10, 2021) at UFC Vegas 23 live on ABC/ESPN+, ESPN from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nev., as Marvin Vettori kept his middleweight win streak alive with a decision over Kevin Holland in the main event (highlights HERE).

In addition to the middleweight headliner, a long list of main card and “Prelims” matchups produced memorable action. Check them out below:

  • Mackenzie Dern pushed her current win streak to four with an impressive first-round armbar finish over veteran contender Nina Nunes
  • Lightweight contender Mateusz Gamrot cashed in on his massive hype with a slick knockout finish over battle-tested veteran Scott Holtzman (watch it HERE)
  • Heavyweight finisher Jarjis Danho returned after a near-five year absence to score an early upset knockout over Yorgan De Castro
  • Impa Kasanganay made good on his UFC welterweight debut with a dominant submission finish over Sasha Palatnikov (highlights HERE)
  • John Makdessi scored split-decision win over newcomer Ignacio Bahamondes in a lightweight matchup that saw both fighters land over 100 significant strikes
  • Rising middleweight contender Julian Marquez captured his second submission win of 2021 with a second-round finish over Sam Alvey
