Las Vegas – UFC He returned to his Apex TV studio after a week off to shoot a Fight Night show in Las Vegas for ESPN +, and it started with a bang.
Pete Rodriguez and Mike Jackson threw slugs in the welterweight opener, and although it was slated for round three, not one was completely necessary as Rodriguez closed the show early.
Rodriguez trampled his opponent with body shots, smashed his skull with precision punches and cut his face with a terrifying knee.
Jackson’s legs appeared to be bent backwards. He was unconscious and remained motionless for at least a minute, about 93 seconds until the actual fight.
Eventually, the Apex crowd began cheering as Jackson slowly regained consciousness.
And, with him back in top form, replays of the disastrous finale were played on the big screen.

Watch Brito’s victory below:
In the last bout of foreplay, Jacob Malcon overcame Nick Maximov’s power punch in the opening, a round in which he faced a knockdown, only to bounce back with his solid work.
Maximov was well supported by the Octagon, with several members of his combat team, including cult MMA hero Nate Diaz, filming the action and shouting words of encouragement.
But suddenly one of his training partners said, “Why is Nick winning?”
And, it soon became clear that Maximov was fighting an injury that troubled him immensely.
With every minute spent in the fight, the more damage Maximov dealt to himself, the more damage he dealt to himself as he tried to continue despite a bad knee.
Despite being able to defend himself, the pace had changed considerably as Malchone was uphill, flying on the first lap, before surprising the Californian on the second, despite Maksimov’s hard work in the first minute.
In the end, Malcon had tried hard enough to secure victory with a net score of between 30 and 27 from three judges.
One of the best fights was last saved when Mana Martinez took on Brandon Davis, but strangely he didn’t follow up and left his opponent out forever. He gave.
Between round two and three, Martinez’s coach James Cross told his fighter to stalk the finish line.
However, despite having something surprisingly different about the spirit, it never ended.
In the end, Martinez garnered more than one decisive victory that divided the judges, but the good man won.
