BANTAMWEIGHT BASH! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., Sept. 17, 2022, with a meaningful 135-pound showdown between top-ranked division contender, Cory Sandhagen, looking to blunt the rise of surging prospect, Song Yadong. In UFC Vegas 60’s co-main event, hard-hitting Middleweight strikers, Chidi Njokuani and Gregory Rodrigues, will hook ‘em up in a potential “Fight of the Night” contender.

As promised, Egger started off the fight strong, showing her Judo expertise. She threw Perez around and hunted for the arm from top position, pinning Perez for a majority of the opening round. When Perez did return to her feet, she landed some solid punches, but she continually stymied her own momentum by clinching back up.

In the second, Egger once again gained top position after a clinch takedown. Taking her opponent’s back late in the round, it seemed like Perez would survive to the third. Instead, Egger wrapped an arm around the neck in the closing seconds, returning to the win column in style.
