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!

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.
