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!

Miller was a solid betting favorite for this fight and for good reason. He’s one of the longest lasting veterans in UFC history and Butler was making his debut on just a few days notice. Miller was patient in the opening seconds before leaping in for a straight left hand. Butler buckled and fell back into the cage as Miller leveled him again with a left upper cut. The fight was more than over at that point.

Miller, 39, is back in the win column after suffering a decision loss to Alexander Hernandez this past February. The UFC veteran also extended his record for most fights inside of the Octagon with 42 and earns the quickest stoppage of his memorable UFC career.
