UFC Fight Night 241 video: Adrian Yanez mauls Vinicius Salvador in first round

Adrian Yanez reentered the win column with a bang – or a series of them – at UFC Fight Night 241 on Saturday.

In a bantamweight bout on the main card, Yanez (17-5 MMA, 6-2 UFC) finished opponent Vinicius Salvador (14-7 MMA, 0-3 UFC with punches for a stoppage at 2:47 of Round 1.

A wicked counter righthand by Yanez marked the beginning of the end for Salvador at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. Though Salvador did his best to try to survive, he was unable. Salvador was still conscious at the time of the stoppage, but absorbed too many unanswered blows from Yanez in the opinion of referee Chris Tognoni.

With the win, Yanez snaps a two-fight skid that included TKO defeats to Rob Font and Jonathan Martinez. Salvador loses his third fight in as many UFC tries since he signed with the promotion off Dana White’s Contender Series in August 2022.
