The UFC Fight Night Vera vs Cruz results are posted from the event which aired on Saturday, August 13, 2022 from the Pechanga Arena in San Diego, CA.
In the main event, Vera argued his legitimacy to be a top 5 bantamweight rather well. A back and forth through this fight was the overall feeling. In round one, Vera found a hook that made connection and noticably hurt Cruz. In round 3, Vera wobbled his opponent again, showing the first was no fluke. Finally in round 4, a Vera blitz had Cruz backing for the fence but a head kick face planted Cruz and advanced Chito Vera in the division.
The co-main event was a back and forth battle. It was Nate Landwehr who squeaked by with the judges split decision, in a very entertaining bout.
Here’s a video of the post fight press conference, courtesy of the UFC, below that you will see the remaining results of this entertaining night from San Diego.
