The highly anticipated men’s flyweight main event resulted in a second-round TKO victory for the undefeated Japanese standout. Unfortunately, the win didn’t come in the most ideal form, as Perez suffered a leg injury early in Round 2 which spelled an end to the fight (see that here).

UFC Vegas 93 was co-headlined by a bantamweight scrap between Douglas Silva de Andrade (29-5 MMA) and Miles Johns (14-2 MMA). The bout wound up going the full three rounds, with Johns ultimately emerging victorious by way of unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28).

Following the conclusion of tonight’s event, UFC officials announced at the post-fight press conference that four fighters would be taking home performance bonuses.
