LIVE! Stream UFC Vegas 79 On ESPN+

HIGH STAKES LIGHTWEIGHT MATCHUP! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC APEX on Sat., Sept. 23, 2023, with a high stakes 155-pound showdown as No. 6-ranked contender, Rafael Fiziev, takes on No. 7-seeded Mateusz Gamrot. In UFC Vegas 79’s co-main event, No. 12-ranked Featherweight contender, Bryce Mitchell, steps back into the Octagon against No. 13-seeded Dan Ige.

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

Saturday’s ABC card will be headlined by former UFC featherweight title challenger, Josh Emmett, and undefeated contender, Ilia Topuria. This is Emmett’s first action since losing to Yair Rodriguez via submission for the interim title back in February (highlights HERE). It may be his final chance to prove he’s still a top threat in the division and someone who can fight for a belt despite being 38 years old.

Topuria, on the other hand, is coming off a submission win over Bryce Mitchell at UFC 282 this past December. The Georgian fighter easily sports one of the best ground games in mixed martial arts (MMA) today and is hoping to use a memorable win over Emmett to lock down his shot at UFC featherweight champion, Alexander Volkanovski.

Check out Friday’s final staredown between Emmett and Topuria below:

Adding to UFC Jacksonville’s main card madness will be a co-headliner between women’s flyweight contenders Amanda Ribas and Maycee Barber. Ribas is trying to win her second straight at flyweight while Barber looks to capture her fifth-straight victory and put herself in title contention entering the final half of 2023.

Their final faceoff can be seen below: will deliver LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC Jacksonville fight card RIGHT HERE, starting with the ESPN/ESPN+ preliminary card bouts at 12 p.m. ET, followed by the ABC/ESPN+ main card start time at 3 p.m. ET.
