The UFC kicked off the year 2024 in spectacular fashion at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, treating fans to a night filled with action-packed highlights and historic moments. The opening bout of the year marked a significant milestone as Myanmar's Joshua Van emerged victorious, securing an impressive second-round TKO and extending his undefeated streak to three wins in the UFC. At just 22 years old, Van's promising performance hints at a breakout year for the young athlete.

Ankalaev knocks out Walker

In a highly anticipated rematch, light heavyweight contenders #3 Magomed Ankalaev and #7 Johnny Walker squared off following their previous No Contest in October. The bout showcased a fierce exchange of leg kicks, culminating in Ankalaev's decisive victory with two consecutive right punches that sent Walker to the canvas in the second round. Ankalaev expressed his readiness for the fight, stating, "I am open for the hunt, and everyone in front of me is the hunted. I have ten victories in a row; I'm worth it. Give me that fight for the title now."

Miller calls out Brock Lesnar

The co-main event featured a surprise matchup between Octagon veteran Jim Miller and Gabriel Benitez in the lightweight division. Both seasoned fighters delivered an entertaining contest, with Miller ultimately securing a fight-ending neck crank in the final round. With an impressive UFC record of 43 fights and 26 wins, Miller solidified his legacy as one of the sport's enduring figures. Looking ahead, Miller teased potential matchups for UFC 300, mentioning intriguing names such as Paul Felder and Matt Brown, and even humorously suggesting a bout with Brock Lesnar if the purse is enticing enough.
