PIVOTAL BANTAMWEIGHT CLASH! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to San Diego, Calif., on Sat., Aug. 13, 2022, for the first time since 2015 with a pivotal battle between top-ranked Bantamweight contenders that will see No. 5-ranked Marlon Vera take on former champion and No. 8-seeded Dominick Cruz. In San Diego’s co-main event, Nate Landwehr and David Onama will collide in a Featherweight showdown between dynamic 145-pound hopefuls.

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

Simon controlled this bantamweight clash from the opening bell. He was able to use his strength and low center of gravity to get inside on Shore and keep him along the cage. In Round 2, Simon let his hands go a little more and caught Shore with a crisp right hand. Shore wobbled and fell to the canvas. That’s when Simon jumped on top and worked his way towards the fight-ending submission.

Simon, 29, has now won his last five trips to the Octagon and looks ready to test his luck at the bantamweight top 10. Shore was as touted as they come and Simon made him look like a fish out of water. Very impressive to say the least.
