Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., Oct. 2, 2021, with a thrilling Light Heavyweight contenders’ bout that will see No. 5-ranked Thiago Santos battle No. 10-seeded Johnny Walker.

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

Both middleweights moved around well to begin the fight. Gastelum landed a few good inside leg kicks on the go while Cannonier timed some outside leg attacks. Cannonier also landed a big left hand along the way. In Round 3, Cannonier landed a huge right hand that nearly took Gastelum’s head off, but the veteran kept his composure.

Gastelum recovered and went toe-to-toe with Cannonier in the fourth, although “Killa Gorilla” seemed to score a brief knockdown in the center of the cage. Cannonier kept busy in the fifth as Gastelum had a hard time figuring out his movement. Gastelum did land a quick takedown but nothing that really separated him in the fight. In the end, it was Cannonier who did more damage and walked away with the win.
