The always entertaining “Black Beast” is sure to provide some fireworks as he looks to stop Daukaus from getting into title contention. Also fighting on Saturday is Top 5 welterweight karate master Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson who takes on Belal “Remember the Name” Muhammad who is 5-0-1 in his last 6 fights.

Post fight update: Derrick Lewis proved that their are levels in the UFC and Daukaus isn’t quite in his stratosphere yet. Lewis knocked out Daukaus in the first round to prove that he deserves his top 5 ranking. In the co-main event, Belal Muhammad put on a wrestling clinic to shut down the striking game of Thompson. Muhammad took down the former title challenger in every round and beat down Thompson with a steady stream of ground and pound. “Remember the Name” has not lost since 2019 and we can expect that he will near the top 5 with this win.
