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!

Pedro was dialed in from the opening bell. He was able to utilize his distance control and speed to keep Turkalj at bay. He eventually found his chance to land a huge right hand during an inside exchange. It stunned Turkalj. Pedro kept the offense coming with combinations and a few more right hands.

Turkalj finally toppled to the canvas as his neck whipped back. That’s when Pedro came flying in for a final hammer fist before the referee stepped in for the stoppage. It was a massive finish for Pedro and a stunning 15-second sequence that blew the roof off the Qudos Bank Arena.
