After dominating the ADCC and establishing himself as the best no-gi grappler on the planet, Gordon Ryan was looking to continue his revenge tour tonight (Thursday, December 15, 2022) in a rematch with the last man to defeat him: UFC veteran, Vinny Magalhaes. With Magalhaes out of commission, however, he will instead face former Danaher Death Squad teammate, Nick Rodriguez, with 24 hours notice only. The fight will serve as one of two ‘super’ fights alongside the former UFC champ Miesha Tateis the battle with Beatrice Mesquita.
MMAmania.com will provide live coverage of the main event below, along with quick results for the rest of the UFC Fight Pass Invitational 3 main card starting at 9 p.m. ET.
The meat of the event, however, is the one-night $25,000 tournament. Haisam Rida against Patrick Gaudio and Mason Fowler against Pat Shahgholi make up half the table, Andy Varela against Luke Griffith and Richie Martinez against Oliver Taza the other.
