HIGH STAKES LIGHTWEIGHT MATCHUP! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC APEX on Sat., Sept. 23, 2023, with a high stakes 155-pound showdown as No. 6-ranked contender, Rafael Fiziev, takes on No. 7-seeded Mateusz Gamrot. In UFC Vegas 79’s co-main event, No. 12-ranked Featherweight contender, Bryce Mitchell, steps back into the Octagon against No. 13-seeded Dan Ige.

Austin Lingo recently bailed on his David Onama bout at 145 pounds, according to MMA Junkie, the second straight fight in which “Lights Out” has withdrawn. The 27-year-old Texan also pulled himself from the UFC Vegas 48 card back in February.

Onama will now battle promotional newcomer, Garrett Armfield, on super short notice. Onama and Armfield both competed for a KCFA amateur mixed martial arts (MMA) title back in 2018, with Onama winning the contest via unanimous decision. Armfield is riding a three-fight win streak headed into his Octagon debut, most recently scoring a first round knockout over Steven Graham at Fighting Alliance Championship (FAC) 13 back in May.

Meanwhile, getting removed from UFC Vegas 58’s “Prelims” is the middleweight mashup between Jamie Pickett and Denis Tiuliulin, first reported by Twitter account ProdiigyDFS. The promotion is expected to rebook that contest for a card in September.

No reason was provided for either cancelation.

UFC Vegas 58 will be headlined by the lightweight showdown between former champion Rafael dos Anjos and surging contender Rafael Fiziev. The middleweight co-main event will feature the 185-pound contest between Caio Borralho and Armen Petrosyan, not long after Said Nurmagomedov and Douglas Silva de Andrade hook ‘em up at 135 pounds.
