HIGH STAKES LIGHTWEIGHT MATCHUP! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC APEX on Sat., Sept. 23, 2023, with a high stakes 155-pound showdown as No. 6-ranked contender, Rafael Fiziev, takes on No. 7-seeded Mateusz Gamrot. In UFC Vegas 79’s co-main event, No. 12-ranked Featherweight contender, Bryce Mitchell, steps back into the Octagon against No. 13-seeded Dan Ige.

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

Mokaev wasted no time as he landed a crisp flying knee that put Durden on his butt. That’s when Mokaev moved in for a tight guillotine choke. Durden did his best to wiggle free and fight the hands, but Mokaev’s grip was simply too much. Durden had nothing left to do except tap.

Mokaev, who now pushes his undefeated MMA record to 7-0, is one of the more exciting fighters to come into the UFC’s flyweight division in quite some time. His combination of wrestling and striking is downright dangerous and it’s crazy to think what this kid can be considering he’s only 21 years of age.
