TOP 15 BANTAMWEIGHT BATTLE! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to “The Lone Star State” on Sat., Dec. 2, 2023, with a 155-pound main event showdown between top-ranked division contenders, Beneil Dariush (No. 4) vs. Arman Tsarukyan (No. 8), both of whom are looking to inch closer to a division title shot in 2024. In UFC Austin’s co-main event, Bobby Green will looks to continue his resurgence against short-notice “Tarantula,” Jalin Turner.

Motta did well to close the distance early and started to tag VanCamp at will. VanCamp did a poor job at covering up his chin and left it in the air almost asking to be hit. It was only a matter of time before Motta found his opening and slammed a counter left hook into VanCamp’s chin. VanCamp fell to the canvas and Motta jumped on top for the finish.

Motta, 29, lost his Octagon debut this past February on the heels of a Jim Miller knockout so this finish was certainly needed. The Brazilian prospect is one of the more promising new names at 155 pounds and will be an interesting fighter to watch entering 2023, especially if he can continue to land his hands.
