MASSIVE MIDDLEWEIGHT MATCH! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) makes its highly anticipated return to Sydney, Australia, for the first time in five years on Sat., Sept. 9, 2023, with a 185-pound world title fight inside Qudos Bank Arena. In the ESPN+-streamed pay-per-view (PPV) main event, Middleweight roost-ruler, Israel Adesanya, plans to silence No. 5-seeded contender, Sean Strickland. In UFC 293’s hard-hitting Heavyweight co-main event, No-6-ranked fan favorite, Tai Tuivasa, locks horns with towering Russian, Alexander Volkov (No. 8).

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

Bonfim looked great in the early going as he landed a slamming takedown and controlled Giles on the mat. Moments later, Bonfim appeared to let Giles start to get back to his feet only to lock up a guillotine choke. Giles tried to pop his head out, but the Brazilian’s squeeze was too powerful. Giles tapped and Bonfim walked away with the win.

Check out the final moments below:

Bonfim, 25, was no joke during his win on the Contender Series and he carried that momentum into a 49-second submission finish in his Octagon debut. He now has another quick first-round submission to his name and looks ready to test some stiffer competition in the ultra-stacked welterweight division.
