NEW SCHOOL VS. OLD SCHOOL LIGHTWEIGHT SHOWDOWN! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC APEX on Sat., Oct. 7, 2023, with surging 155-pound contender, Grant Dawson, taking on inimitable Octagon veteran, Bobby Green, in the ESPN+-streamed main event. In UFC Vegas 80’s co-main event, Joe Pyfer looks to continue his meteoric Middleweight rise at the expense of Abdul Razak Alhassan’s expense.

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

Giagos was able to gain top control in the early going but that was short lived. Tsarukyan returned to his feet and clipped Giagos with a crisp left hook. Giagos stumbled back into the cage and Tsarukyan unloaded all hell until Giagos went limp and the referee waved the fight off.

Tsarukyan continues to improve and now holds a 4-1 record inside of the Octagon. His only loss was to current lightweight contender Islam Makhachev. If things go as planned the 24-year-old Tsarukyan should land a top 10 opponent after this performance. Next year might be a huge campaign for the Russian talent if he keeps this up.
