UFC FIGHT NIGHT: DOS ANJOS vs. FIZIEV also known as UFC Vegas 58 aired live in Asia on Sunday, July 10 from the UFC APEX in Las Vegas. In a card stacked with up-and-comers, there were some amazing high-level performances, capped off with a thrilling main event.

Former champion and now #7 ranked lightweight Rafael Dos Anjos and #10 Rafael Fiziev showcased incredible skills, from brilliant striking to cage grappling exchanges. Fast-paced and tactical, the bout went all the way into the fifth round. Right at the start, Fiziev's left hook finally finished the job. With the KO victory, Fiziev said,

"Now we know who's the best Rafa in UFC! Now I want to know who's the best Rafa in sport: Rafael Nadal, come here! Give me something nice, someone in the top five, to make one more knockout in the fifth round, I'm ready."

Up-and-coming Dana White’s Contender Series middleweights Caio Borralho and Armen Petrosyan showed a contrast in style across three rounds. Borralho's takedowns and grappling proved to be the deciding factor against Petrosyan's striking acumen. Borralho said,

"I know I can strike, I did good in the first round, I got him with one hand, but I'm not dumb. That's why I'm the 'fighting nerd', I calculate everything. The best-calculated thing was to get him down because he wasn't defending my takedowns. I got the job done. That's what matters."

Australian Jamie Mullarkey and veteran Michael Johnson delivered a thrilling lightweight bout, dropping each other throughout a three-round close brawl, and the scorecards went the way of Mullarkey.

Bantamweight prospect Said Nurmagomedov picked up a big win, as he outpointed Douglas Silva de Andrade over three rounds of excellent striking
