UFC Vegas 38: ‘Santos vs. Walker’ Live Results and Highlights

By Chris Taylor - October 2, 2021

The Octagon remains in Nevada for tonight’s UFC Vegas 38 event, a twelve-bout fight card headlined by light heavyweights Thiago Santos and Johnny Walker.


Santos (21-9 MMA) will enter tonight’s contest in hopes of snapping a three-fight losing skid. The former light heavyweight title challenger suffered a unanimous decision loss to Aleksandar Rakic in his most recent effort at UFC 259.

Meanwhile, Johnny Walker (18-5 MMA) will be returning from a year long hiatus this evening at UFC Vegas 38. The Brazilian last competed at UFC Vegas 11, where he earned a first-round knockout victory over Ryan Spann. That win had snapped a two-fight losing skid for Walker, who had previously suffered losses to Corey Anderson and Nikita Krylov.

UFC Vegas 38 is co-headlined by a middleweight matchup featuring Kevin Holland squaring off with Kyle Daukaus.

Meanwhile, Kyle Daukaus (10-2 MMA) most recently competed back in May, where he suffered a unanimous decision loss to Phil Hawes. Prior to that setback, the Philadelphia native had earned a win over Dustin Stolzfus at UFC 255.
