HIGH STAKES FLYWEIGHT MATCHUP! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns home to UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., June 3, 2023, with No. 3-seeded contender, Kai Kara-France, face rising No. 7-ranked Amir Albazi. In UFC Vegas 74’s ESPN+-streamed co-main event, an exciting Featherweight bout sees No. 15-ranked contender, Alex Caceres, lock horns with all-action Daniel Pineda.

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

Whitmire was in control in the early going after scoring two sweeping takedowns. Goldy was able to keep Whitmire off her back and regained full mount. That’s when Goldy was able to throw up the armbar attempt and start cranking on Whitmire’s arm. Whitmire tried to defend, but she eventually gave up.

Goldy, who came into this matchup riding a two-fight losing streak, now has her first win since 2019. She also nabs her first UFC victory and finish. The 29-year-old prospect is pretty talented so it will be interesting to see if she can use this performance to find some sort of consistency inside of the Octagon.
