LIGHTWEIGHT CONTENDER COLLISION! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns home to its APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., Nov. 18, 2023, with a Middleweight main event showdown between top-ranked division contenders, Brendan Allen (No. 10) and Paul Craig (No. 13), both of whom are looking to inch closer to the 185-pound Top 5. In UFC Vegas 82’s co-main event, Michael Morales vs. Jake Matthews will lock horns in an exciting Welterweight collision.

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

Peek didn’t make it look pretty, but the Contender Series standout put on an absolute show. Gonzalez worked in some good takedowns, but Peek unloaded heavy offense from the opening bell. Gonzalez was able to survive multiple shots before Peek caught him flush with a massive right hand. Gonzalez fell against the cage and Peek followed up with insurance shots to secure the stoppage as the first round came to a close.

Peek, 27, is now 8-0 in his young professional career with all wins coming by way of knockout. The Mississippi native is a real entertainer and someone who can certainly deliver highlight-reel finishes, but he’ll need to tighten up his striking and takedown defense moving forward if he wants to make a real impact at 155 pounds.
