The likes of Bobby Green, Drew Dober, Joe Pyfer, and Joaquin Buckley fighting on an Apex card in late 2023 might be a bit of a head-scratcher, but that was the case with UFC Vegas 80.
The UFC seems determined to house at least some of its shows in its own private venue, and as a result, UFC lightweight Grant Dawson gets to headline his first UFC event in what amounts to an empty arena, opposite fan-favorite Green.
Joe Pyfer, the biggest star of DWCS 2022, earned his first co-main event slot on the card, paired up with Abdul Razak Alhassan in middleweight action.
