For the second straight week, the flyweights will look to impress the UFC brass as Vinicius Salvador and Shannon Ross travel to Las Vegas to compete inside the UFC APEX.
Representing the Ribas family and fighting in Varginha, Minas Gerais, Brazil, Salvador carries a 13-4 record and a bunch of questions to answer in this encounter with Ross. The 26-year-old is on a three-fight winning streak, but two of those opponents were making their debuts and his losses have all come against more seasoned competition.

Ross, 33, is looking to maintain the form that has seen him win five of his last six before this one, although he hasn’t competed since beating former DWCS Donavon Frelow in November 2020 He was scheduled to face Shaun Etchell twice this year but that never happened, with Ross inked to fight here and Etchell making an appearance on the road to the UFC.
This is an intriguing showdown between two men with plenty of questions to answer, and there’s no better way to answer them than in the UFC cage.
