Fans of mixed martial arts (MMA) are eagerly anticipating UFC Vegas 72, which will feature the highly anticipated return of Brazilian fighter Caio Borralho. This undefeated sensation has been making waves in the sport for several years now, having won all 12 of his fights since joining the UFC. Borralho is set to compete in the co-main event against Michael Oleksiejczuk, and there are high hopes for the fighter who hasn't lost a bout since his second professional fight back in 2015. If Borralho can maintain his impressive winning streak, it is possible that he may find himself up against some of the ranked opponents that many fans have been clamoring for. The co-main event bout will be a vital one for the Brazilian fighter, as it could help him extend his unbeaten run to 13 wins. Borralho has rapidly become a fighter to watch in the UFC after bursting onto the scene with a series of impressive victories on Dana White's Contender Series. His unanimous decision win over current Bellator middleweight Aaron Jeffery undoubtedly caught the attention of fans and pundits alike, as did his first-round TKO victory over Jesse Murray which earned him a contract with the UFC. Since joining the promotion, Borralho has maintained his winning form, earning decision wins over Gadzhi Omargadzhiev, Armen Petrosyan, and Makhmud Muradov. Now, all eyes will be on the Brazilian when he steps into the Octagon once again this weekend. Meanwhile, the main event at UFC Vegas 72 will feature two of the bantamweight division's top-ranked fighters. Song Yadong, who is ranked #8 in the division will be squaring up against #10 ranked Ricky Simon. The fight promises to be an intense match-up, with both fighters eager to gain momentum in what is already a tough 135-pound division. Yadong is coming off the back of a TKO loss to Cory Sandhagen, which ended a three-fight winning streak. Simon, meanwhile, last fought in July 2020, where he secured an impressive submission victory against Jack Shore. The 30-year-old fighter has won his last five fights, including victories over Raphael Assuncao and Ray Borg. The main event offers an ideal opportunity for Simon to further cement his place among the bantamweight division's top-ranked fighters. Should he secure a decisive win over Yadong, it could potentially catapult him up the rankings and set him on the path to bigger fights in the future. With two stacked events on the card, UFC Vegas 72 is shaping up to be an unmissable event for MMA fans around the world. The fights are scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 29th, at the Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.
