The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to the UFC Apex Facility this weekend with. UFC Vegas 38, headlined by a Light Heavyweight battle between two top contenders Thiago Santos and Johnny Walker. October 2nd, Live on ESPN+.
Thiago Santos looks to get back to winning ways after dropping a three losses in succession with his last win dating back to 2019 before his split decision loss to the then Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones. His last appearance back in March saw him lose a unanimous decision to Aleksandr Ratic at UFC 259.
However, Santos has no room for another loss right now but Johnny Walker will be the guy to hinder his move to the win column and if Walker succeeds, Walker could be a free agent next week. This fight promises action as Walker tagged “The Slugger Of All Sluggers” makes his return after a 54 Week Layoff.
Santos has a 3 – 2 record and was last seen knocking out Ryan Spann in the first round at UFC Vegas 11 at the UFC Apex Facility.
