UFC On ESPN+ 32: Fight Night Bonuses
There were no fans in Las Vegas on August 8 for UFC on ESPN+ 32. As a result, there was no gate for the event inside the UFC APEX Center.
Returning to Las Vegas, there was also no true Fight of the Night. Four competitors, however, would win the “Performance of the Night” bonus.
The third fight of the UFC prelims saw Gavin Tucker submit Justin Jaynes. Losing his shorts to escape out of a guillotine choke, Tucker (12-1) would end up landing a vicious knee that stumbled Jaynes back in the third. He would then hit a rear-naked choke to win his second fight in a row.

Right after, Andrew Sanchez (12-5) would end up knocking out Wellington Turman in the first round. Now 3-1 in his last four fights, Sanchez earned his sixth win via knockout.
On the main card, Darren Stewart (12-5, 1 NC) appeared fresh throughout the bout against Maki Pitolo. He was able to earn the first submission win of his career and this was his return fight after appearing for Cage Warriors. Stewart is now 3-1 in his last four fights.
A true highlight of the night, Kevin Holland (18-5) was able to beat Joakin Buckley via TKO before the third round of their fight came to a close. He would end up recovering from a shot below the belt, while also talking back towards his opponent. It was a continual theme until the finishing shot, which took out Buckley’s mouthpiece. Holland, competing after his fight was called off last week, has now won two in a row. He is also 5-1 in his last six fights.
