Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., Sept. 18, 2021, with an exciting match up in the Light Heavyweight division, as No. 6-ranked contender, Anthony Smith, faces off with No. 11-seeded contemporary, Ryan Spann. In UFC Vegas 37’s co-main event, fellow 205-pound veterans Ion Cutelaba and Devin Clark aim to steal the show.  

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

Pimblett came out confident and launched crazy head kicks and spinning attacks to make his presence known. Vendramini fired back and landed a powerful counter that temporarily checked the English prospect. But that didn’t stop Pimblett as he kept pushing forward with combinations and caught Vendramini bad along the cage. A final flurry from “Baddy” put Vendramini down for the count.

This could not have gone any better for Pimblett who enters UFC as one of the hottest prospects in the sport. He looked dangerous, comfortable, and desperate to earn a memorable finish in his Octagon debut. Luckily for fight fans everywhere, Pimblett cashed in when it mattered most and walked away with a monster performance.
