TOP 15-RANKED BANTAMWEIGHT BATTLE! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns home to “Sin City” on Sat., Dec. 9, 2023, with a 135-pound main event showdown between top-seeded division contenders, Yadong Song (No. 7) and Chris Gutierrez (No. 15), with the winner looking to make a potential run at the Bantamweight belt in 2024. In UFC Vegas 83’s co-main event, former Light Heavyweight title challenger, Anthony Smith, steps up on short notice to lock horns with the surging Khalil Rountree Jr.

This co-main event was a firefight from the opening bell. Magny’s persistence and constant pressure caused some issues for Rodriguez, but “D-Rod” was too precise with his power punches and the tide began to turn after two rounds. In the third frame, Magny turned things up to regain momentum and pinned Rodriguez along the cage. From there, he was able to secure a brief takedown and eventually the fight-ending choke.

Magny, 35, was coming off a lopsided submission loss to undefeated welterweight contender Shavkat Rakhmonov this past June so he needed this win to stay afloat in an aggressive 170-pound class. This was Magny’s 20th career victory inside of the Octagon which is a new UFC welterweight record, and a performance that should land him a top 10 matchup early into 2023.
