Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., Oct. 1, 2022, with an exciting women’s sStrawweight contenders’ bout that will see No. 5-ranked Mackenzie Dern clash with No. 6-seeded Yan Xiaonan. In UFC Vegas 61’s action-packed co-main event, exciting Welterweight veterans Randy Brown and Francisco Trinaldo will hook ‘em up inside the Octagon.

Hernandez wasted little time getting going with his grappling. Barriault is a solid wrestler in his own right, but “Fluffy” was too strong and precise with his transitioning. Hernandez started to deplete “Power Bar” and take every position he wanted. In Round 3, Hernandez was able to find a home for an arm-triangle choke and put a tired Barriault to sleep.

Hernandez, 28, is now 4-2 as a member of the UFC’s middleweight division with three equally-impressive submission finishes. The former LFA champion is truly one of the best grapplers in the division today and could warrant a shot at the top 15 with this recent stoppage.
