UFC on ESPN+ 97 just took place at the Apex in Las Vegas. The card was headlined by a heavyweight showdown between top dogs Tai Tuivasa and Marcin Tybura.

The heavy-handed Tuivasa came charging with a barrage of punches as soon as the fight started and cut the Polish fighter with an elbow.

Tybura weathered the storm and took Tuivasa to the ground where he secured a rear-naked choke that eventually put “Bam Bam” to sleep.
