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!

This matchup of exciting featherweight talents was one of the most anticipated fights on the “Prelims” undercard. Mariscal fights like there’s no tomorrow and Jenkins is tough as nails. It was a fan favorite matchup that delivered across the board.

Following a close back-and-forth first round, Mariscal was able to increase his output early into the second. After controlling the fight along the cage for a few minutes he ended up tossing Jenkins from the clinch. As Jenkins went to post on the canvas to prevent the takedown his right elbow bent inward. It had clearly dislocated.

Mariscal quickly went to jump on top for punches, but Jenkins had already informed the referee of his injury. “Chepe” was awarded the second-round TKO finish as boos came flying in from the Australian crowd. The replay of the elbow injury was hard to watch.
