Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., Dec 4, 2021, with a thrilling Bantamweight contenders’ bout that will see No. 4-ranked Rob Font battle No. 5-seeded Jose Aldo. In UFC Vegas 44’s co-main event, No. 12-ranked Lightweight contender, Brad Riddell, squares off with No. 14-seeded Rafael Fiziev in a striking fan’s dream fight.

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

This was not an easy win for Prachnio by any stretch of the imagination. Villanueva landed a brutal upper cut in the early going that stunned Prachnio and left him with a badly bruised left eye. Prachnio kept busy, though, landing leg kicks in bunches and combinations from range on a slowed Villanueva. In the second, Prachnio switched stances and launched a perfectly-timed body kick that caught Villanueva right in the liver. Villanueva fell to the canvas like a sack of potatoes and the finish followed.

After losing his first three trips to the Octagon Prachnio has now won his last two UFC appearances. This was his first finish as a member of the roster, but Prachnio was ending fights like this way before he ever came to the UFC. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come and the Polish fighter can finally settle in at light heavyweight.
