MASSIVE MIDDLEWEIGHT MATCH! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) makes its highly anticipated return to Sydney, Australia, for the first time in five years on Sat., Sept. 9, 2023, with a 185-pound world title fight inside Qudos Bank Arena. In the ESPN+-streamed pay-per-view (PPV) main event, Middleweight roost-ruler, Israel Adesanya, plans to silence No. 5-seeded contender, Sean Strickland. In UFC 293’s hard-hitting Heavyweight co-main event, No-6-ranked fan favorite, Tai Tuivasa, locks horns with towering Russian, Alexander Volkov (No. 8).

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

Abdurakhimov seemed to be getting comfortable in the first round as he landed some good counter shots from the outside. That was until Daukaus snuck inside with a crisp left hook that dropped the Russian with about 30 seconds left in the round. Abdurakhimov survived, but Daukaus caught him again in the second with a monstrous right hand. Daukaus swarmed a badly hurt Abdurakhimov and finished the fight with nasty elbows.
