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!

This fight only lasted 72 seconds as Ramos stalked Chavez along the cage and waited for his opening. Out of nowhere Ramos faked a straight jab before turning his body and launching a spinning back elbow. The strike caught Chavez directly on the side of the head and instantly put him out. As he was falling to the canvas Ramos delivered a follow-up punch for good measure.

Ramos, 26, now has two spinning back elbow knockouts to his name after stopping Aiemann Zahabi with the same move back in 2017. Coming off a decision loss to Zubaira Tukhugov back in Oct. 2021 this was a much-needed win for Ramos, who is now 3-2 since returning to 145 pounds nearly three years ago.
