BLOCKBUSTER BANTAMWEIGHT CONTENDERS’ BOUT! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) departs APEX for a special “Fight Night” extravaganza at AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas, on Sat., March 25, 2023, featuring a pair of thrilling 135-pound bouts. Surging No. 4-ranked contender Marlon Vera goes for his fifth consecutive win when he takes on exciting finisher and No. 5-seeded Cory Sandhagen. In UFC San Antonio’s ESPN+streamed co-main event, former women’s 135-pound champion and current No. 3-ranked Holly Holm battles Yana Santos (No. 4).

Don’t miss a single second of face-punching action!

Lins wasted no time implementing his game plan as he launched a straight left that rocked Saint Preux. Lins proceeded to chase OSP around the cage looking for the finish. He eventually landed a brutal left hand that stopped Saint Preux in his tracks.

Lins, 37, is now 2-0 since returning to 205 pounds last year. The former Professional Fighters League (PFL) standout seems way more comfortable fighting outside of the heavyweight division and it could lead to good things in a light heavyweight class still looking for fresh talent.
