LIGHTWEIGHT CONTENDERS CLASH! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., June 25, 2022, with a thrilling Lightweight contenders’ bout featuring No. 11-ranked Arman Tsarukyan taking on No. 12-seeded Mateusz Gamrot. In UFC Vegas 57’s co-main event, No. 10-ranked Welterweight, Neil Magny, will attempt to halt the momentum of undefeated Shakvat Rakhmonov (No. 15).

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

It didn’t take Almeida long to move inside and score a powerful slamming takedown along the cage. From there, Almeida sliced through Porter with heavy ground-and-pound. Porter did fairly well to survive before turning over onto his stomach. That allowed Almeida to sink in the rear-naked choke and force the tap.

Alemida, 30, made a big Octagon debut this past February when he stopped Danilo Marques via first-round TKO. This was the Brazilian’s sophomore appearance and he didn’t disappoint. Almeida was a heavy favorite, but he gave up a ton of weight to Porter and was still able to show off his insane power and knack for finishing fights.
