The UFC ended a run of eight consecutive weeks of fight cards on Saturday with the promotion’s first card in San Antonio, Texas, since July 2019. In the headlining bout of Saturday’s event, Cory Sandhagen put the brakes to Marlon “Chito” Vera’s charge up the featherweight rankings with a split-decision win.
Sandhagen, who entered the bout as the No. 5 fighter in the official UFC featherweight rankings, ended Vera’s run of four straight wins — and four consecutive fight-night bonus-winning performances. Vera entered the contest ranked at No. 3 in the UFC’s 145-pound division.
In the co-main event, former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm got back in the win column by sweeping her opponent, Yana Santos, on the scorecards. The victory was Holm’s first since she defeated Irene Aldana in October 2020.
Before the two headlining bouts, Nate Landwehr picked up his third straight win — and third consecutive fight-night bonus with a submission win over Austin Lingo.
