Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., Nov. 20, 2021, with a showcase match up in the women’s Bantamweight division as No. 7-ranked contender, Ketlen Vieira, takes on No. 8-seeded Miesha Tate. In UFC Vegas 43’s co-main event, Welterweight grappling specialists lock horns as No. 6-ranked contender Michael Chiesa looks to derail the up-and-coming Sean Brady (No. 13).

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

Avila came out guns blazing like usual and rushed in for flurries of offense. Stoliarenko was game to exchange and landed some good punches of her own, but she started to get busted up pretty quickly. Avila would stay in control heading into the third and final frame when Stoliarenko tried to take the action to the ground. “Raging Panda” would end up in back control which is where she worked for the submission finish.

This is a major win for Avila who was coming off a decision loss to Sijara Eubanks back in Sept. 2020. The hard-nosed contender seems ready to make her push towards the top 10 as she digs her heels in as a full-time fighter.
