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.

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

Wilson tried to use his length to land some shots from range early on, but Brito’s explosiveness and quick footwork allowed him to moved inside and start landing heavy leather. Wilson was able to utilize his grappling skills during a transition to the ground and tried to lock up one of Brito’s legs. Brito remained calm and eventually defended long enough to launch powerful punches. Wilson’s head started to clang off the canvas and the referee was forced to step in.

Brito, 28, is now 3-1 inside of the Octagon and has finished all three of those wins by knockout or submission. The Brazilian fighter looks to be a serious contender heading into the second half of 2023 even in a fully-stacked division like featherweight.
