A welterweight bout between Michel Pereira and Khaos Williams took place on the main card of tonight’s UFC Vegas 17 event.

Pereira (24-11 MMA) was last seen in action this past September, where he scored a submission victory over Zelim Imadaev. That win had snapped a two-fight losing skid for ‘Demolidor’, as he had suffered setbacks to Diego Sanchez and Tristan Connelly in his most previous Octagon appearances.

Meanwhile, Khaos Williams (11-1 MMA) had entered UFC Vegas 17 on a two-fight win streak, his latest being a sensational knockout win over Abdul Razak Alhassan. That 30-second knockout victory was preceded by a 27-second knockout win over Alex Moreno in his promotional debut at UFC 247.
