UFC FIGHT NIGHT: COSTA vs VETTORI also known as UFC Vegas 41 aired live in Asia on Sunday, October 24 from UFC APEX in Las Vegas. The card was stacked with absolute bangers and some surprising finishes, capped off with the main event that delivered the fireworks.

Marvin Vettori and Paulo Costa deliver instant classic

In a classic back-and-forth brawl, middleweight rankers #2 Paulo Costa and #5 Marvin Vettori went all five rounds. Costa had come in heavy and asked for a catchweight bout above the limit, and the power it gave him showed in his kicks and body punches. Vettori gave back even more, with combinations that rattled Costa. They added up on the scorecards giving Vettori the unanimous decision. Vettori said,

"Another improving experience for me. I know I have the biggest heart and the biggest will, so when it goes into the fifth round, there's no way nobody can keep up."

Co-Main Event ends in a draw

In the lightweight co-main event, up and comer Grant Dawson employed his wrestling against veteran Ricky Glenn. Dawson's takedowns were on point, but Glenn mounted a progressively better defense and made a furious late charge. After three rounds, the bout went to the judges who said it was too close to call and ruled a Draw.

Veteran Alex Caceres showed that experience was key against surging featherweight Seung-Woo Choi. Choi's striking was excellent and he dropped Caceres but followed up with an illegal knee that cost him a point deduction. Caceres recovered and weathered the power punching of Choi to find an opportunity to lock on standing for a finish by submission and a Performance of the Night bonus.

In the featured bout of the prelims, Junyong Park and Gregory Rodrigues delivered the Fight of the Night. Rodrigues controlled the first round on the canvas, and Park let his fists fly in the second. Rodrigues survived and fired back, all but knocking out Park while standing at the cage for the KO victory.
