LIGHTWEIGHT CONTENDERS COLLIDE! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., July 9, 2022, with a must-watch Lightweight contender showdown that will see No. 7-ranked Rafael dos Anjos battle No. 10-seeded Rafael Fiziev. In UFC Vegas 58’s co-main event, Caio Borralho locks horns with Armen Petrosyan in a Middleweight clash of Contender Series signees.

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

Adashev is a really good striker, but Osbourne entertained a standup battle in the early going given his reach and size advantage. It only took a few moments for Osbourne to land a crisp counter right hook that sent Adashev crashing to the canvas. Osbourne instantly jumped on top for smashing punches from top position that put Adashev out for the count.

Osbourne, 30, has now won his last two trips to the Octagon and looks like a completely different fighter since hooking up with head coach John Wood at Syndicate MMA. With considerable size and finishing ability Osbourne should be fun to watch as he pushes his way towards the flyweight top 15.
