Don’t just take my word for it—feast your eyes on the jaw-dropping finish in the accompanying video.
Since securing a contract via Dana White’s Contender Series in the summer of 2022, the 31-year-old Cortes-Acosta has been far from a mat-side ornament. He’s thrown down in the octagon four times to be exact. He kicked off his UFC journey with decision triumphs over Jared Vanderaa and Chase Sherman. Although he tasted defeat for the first time in his pro career against Marcos Rogerio de Lima this past April, Cortes-Acosta rebounded like a pro in his latest outing, which also marked his first fight beyond the confines of the APEX arena.
As for Lukasz Brzeski, his future with the UFC appears to be hanging by a thread, thinner than Spider-Man’s webbing. The fighter has now chalked up his third consecutive loss since inking a deal with the UFC, making his continued tenure with the promotion increasingly uncertain.
