Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., Oct. 16, 2021, with an exciting women’s Featherweight bout that will see No. 3-ranked Bantamweight contender, Aspen Ladd, step in for injured Holly Holm to face Norma Dumont. In UFC Vegas 40’s co-main event, former UFC Heavyweight champion, Andrei Arlovski, will take on rising prospect Carlos Felipe.

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

Turman was able to tap into his own gameplan early and back Silva up along the cage with some good grappling and takedown attempts. Silva remained calm and worked his way into top control during a transition to the ground. At that point, the Brazilian newcomer unloaded powerful and precise punches to put Turman to sleep.

This is exactly what fight fans were expecting to see when Silva’s long-awaited UFC debut was finally booked. The talented middleweight clearly has power for days and didn’t even get to throw strikes on his feet. We can only imagine what that will look like when “Blindado” steps back inside of the Octagon.
