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!

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.
