UFC Fight Night: Allen vs. Craig captivated fans worldwide as it aired live from the UFC APEX in Las Vegas on Sunday, November 19. The event featured two emerging middleweight contenders, #10 Brendan Allen and #13 Paul Craig, both renowned for their submission expertise, engaging in a highly anticipated clash that delivered plenty of ground exchanges.

From the outset, Allen showcased his aggressiveness, executing flying throws and asserting dominance on the ground. The battle reached its climax in the third round when Allen secured a rear naked choke, compelling Craig to tap out, marking a decisive victory for the #10-ranked middleweight.

The welterweight division witnessed an intense showdown between undefeated rookie Michael Morales and seasoned standout Jake Matthews. Both fighters exhibited elite striking skills, with Morales displaying a slightly wider array of strikes and a more frequent application. The judges unanimously awarded Morales the win after three rounds of compelling action.

In a remarkable Octagon debut, Indonesia's first UFC representative, Jeka Saragih, continued his streak of highlight-reel finishes, a trademark established during season one of ROAD TO UFC. Despite facing Lucas Alexander, who possessed a significant reach and height advantage, Saragih seized the opportunity and secured a KO victory within a minute and a half of the first round. This outstanding performance earned Saragih a well-deserved Performance of the Night bonus.

The event showcased the diverse skills of these rising stars, adding to the excitement of the UFC Fight Night series. As the fighters displayed their prowess inside the octagon, fans were treated to a memorable night of thrilling matchups and remarkable finishes.
