Early Preliminary Cards:

Catchweight (150 pounds) Herbert Burns (11-2, 2-0 UFC) defeats Evan Dunham (18-9-1, 11-9-1 UFC) via first-round rear-naked choke

Post-Fight Scrum:

The Burns brothers came to make a lot of noise in 2020 and we’ve come to make history. Gilbert proved that last week when he took out the No. 1 contender Tyron Woodley with a special performance and today I took out a seasoned veteran in Evan Dunham, so we came here to make history and we are on the way to do that.

I felt very good, it was a good fight against a tough veteran, a former top lightweight. I knew I had to go in there and put pressure. My style, I try to finish fights, that’s why I’m ‘Blaze’, got to be done in blazing style, so that’s what I did. Having that name on my resume is great because he is super tough, I saw him in a lot of wars and to finish a guy like that in the first round is a statement win.” Burns said.

Light heavyweight: Devin Clark (11-4, 5-4 UFC) defeats Alonzo Menifield (9-0, 2-0 UFC) by unanimous decision

Men’s flyweight: Alex Perez (24-5, 5-1 UFC) defeats Jussier Formiga (23-8, 8-5 UFC) via first-round TKO

Post-Fight Scrum:

“It means a lot, I’ve fought a lot of guys. I feel like he’s been the toughest guy I’ve fought so far. It’s kind of a bittersweet feeling, I’ve known this guy for a long time, I met him about 2010, my second amateur fight when he was the No. 1 guy in the world at the time. It’s kind of like a full circle, I came back and I fought him.

“He’s one of the guys I didn’t want to fight just because we are friends, but business is business, I’ve got to make money and it is what it is. The number next to my name doesn’t matter, I’ve got to fight everyone. The only number matters is number one, that’s the champion, other than that I couldn’t care less about the number I got, I’m ready to fight, I’ll be here for the next two weeks just in case someone gets hurt.” Perez said.


Middleweight: Maki Pitolo (13-5, 1-1 UFC) defeats Charles Byrd (10-7, 1-3 UFC) via second-round TKO

Post-Fight Scrum:

“I feel really good, I feel like myself. Cutting to 170, even when I rehydrated back up and you get the 24 hour period to rehydrate and come back up, it still felt like something was missing. 185, perfect cut, I feel like an animal at this weight, the cards played out correct and I feel phenomenal at 185. It was awesome to come back to the Apex and do it here and get my first win. I have no name in mind, anyone, anytime, your boy is ready.” Pitolo said after his win.

Men’s bantamweight: Cody Stamann (19-2-1, 5-1-1 UFC) defeats Brian Kelleher (21-10, 5-3 UFC) by unanimous decision.

Post-Fight Scrum:

It means everything to me, fighting is my life, fighting and family is absolutely everything in my life, there’s not room for anything else, so you’re talking about the two biggest things in my life. I’ve been cracking at the seams this whole time, I’ve been fighting tears all day, the second that fight was over, I just couldn’t hold it in anymore.

Even sitting down between rounds, if I have a second to myself to think about what’s happening, I just start to ball up. I just had to keep my s*** together, I had to be a man and suck it up and do my job to the best of my ability and I’m pretty fortunate that I was able to hold it together.” Cody Stamann said.

Men’s middleweight: Ian Heinisch (13-3, 2-2 UFC) knocks out Gerald Meerschaert (30-12, 6-4 UFC) in the first round.

Post-Fight Scrum:

It’s huge, you drop two in the UFC, I’ve only fought ranked killers since I’ve been in the UFC, so to finally come into my own and get a big finish, especially with all of the changes going on right now, it was a wild camp, it’s been a wild life, so it feels good for all of the hard work to pay off.

I’m definitely moving to Thailand as soon as the borders open back up, splitting camps is something that I’m interested in, I had a great vibe this whole camp. Training at elevation is hard on my body, but it always give you that extra will power in the fight.

I’m going to discuss with my manager, but I definitely want to start climbing the rankings again. I’m rank 13, if Uriah Hall doesn’t have an opponent in the near future, that’d be an interesting fight for me, or basically anyone ranked.” Ian Heinisch said.

Men’s featherweight: Alex Caceres (15-12, 11-10 UFC) defeats Chase Hooper (9-0-1, 1-0 UFC) via unanimous decision. 

Post-Fight Scrum: 

“I would like to have more exciting fights, I would like to have a striker next time because I like to put on a show for the fans and everything. This fight, I feel like we did put on a show, but I was a little bit more cautious with my kicks and all the flying techniques because I knew that’s what he wanted, he wanted to go to the ground and dominate there.

“He felt strong there and I knew he wasn’t getting tired there, but I knew every time he had to stand up and face me again with the hands, he was gassing out. Every time I touched him to the body, he felt it. I dropped him in the first round, so I knew that he had to respect my power after that. I just want to let everyone know that I’m here to stay, I’ve been here for a very long time and I got a long ways to go.” Alex said.

Post-fight Scrum: 

“The biggest thing was having a sense of urgency, he did a good job of tying me up against the fence and not allowing me to create space and work anything offensive, so it was really about me creating that sense of urgency to break that clinch against the fence and bring the fight back to him.

“I’m only getting better, that fight shows it. I’m not happy with that performance at all, I know I can do a lot better than that and that fire will just continue to drive me and get back in the gym and work my ass off to get my goals accomplished.

Post-fight Scrum:

“I’m a viper, the human backpack. I put these hooks in and you aren’t going anywhere, you’re going to be there for a very, very long night. I heard his coach say, “he’s just looking to wrestle” and I said, yup haha. That’s my game plan, pressure forward, elite wrestlers can really dictate the pace of a fight, especially if you are competent on the feet, that’s what makes us more dangerous.

“Striking is fun, but it hurts a lot more, I’ll tell you that, wrestling is just an easier, clear-cut path to victory, especially when you are as dangerous on the ground as myself. There are black belts and then there are black belts, and I’m a Serra BJJ black belt,” Sterling said.
