BLOCKBUSTER BANTAMWEIGHT BATTLE! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Newark, N.J., for the first time in more than three years on Sat., May 6, 2023, with a blockbuster Bantamweight collision inside Prudential Center that will see Aljamain Sterling attempt another successful title defense against returning two-division titleholder and former gold medal-winning Olympic wrestler, Henry Cejudo. In UFC 288’s last-minute pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event, former Welterweight title challenger, Gilbert Burns, locks horns with No. 4-seeded contender, Belal Muhammad, in a five-round, 170-pound No. 1 contender eliminator match.

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

Gomez Juarez possessed the larger frame and reach and she used it early to land some solid leg kicks and long strikes from distance. Out of nowhere she launched a brutal right hand that smashed into Demopoulos’ face and knocked her down to the canvas in a heap. Gomez Juarez rushed in and landed some serious ground-and-pound to nearly end the fight, but she left her arm in danger and Demopoulos took full advantage to find the comeback submission finish.
