STRAWWEIGHT CONTENDERS COLLIDE! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns home to UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., May 20, 2023, with No. 7-ranked women’s Strawweight contender, Mackenzie Dern, testing her high-powered submission skills against No. 13-seeded Angela Hill.

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

Hawes was in control from the opening bell. With a large reach advantage the powerful middleweight was able to time his shots, land at an incredible clip, lean on his jab, and score short elbows inside. Winn was hurt multiple times, but he simply wouldn’t go away. In the second round, Hawes started to piece Winn up at will and badly bloodied the middleweight fighter. Referee Herb Dean eventually saw enough and stepped in to stop the action.

Hawes, 33, is now 4-1 inside of the Octagon with his only loss coming at the hands of Chris Curtis back in Nov. 2021. Winn isn’t the most well-rounded fighter at 185 pounds, but “Megatron” made this look easy and seems ready for a big step up in competition his next time out.
