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!

Much like his other UFC appearances Pimblett had to overcome some early adversity before finding his chance to finish the fight. Leavitt’s grappling and wrestling attacks looked strong in the early going, but Pimblett patiently waited for the second round before launching his attack. A knee inside put Leavitt to the ground and allowed Pimblett to secure his submission finish, drop a quick teabag, and put the UFC London crowd in an absolute craze.

As expected, the mixed martial arts (MMA) community was on high alert and wasted little time offering their reaction to Pimblett’s third-straight UFC finish. Check out some of the feedback below from MMA’s finest:
