Grant Dawson vs. Rick Glenn was a solid co-main event fight.
The two fighters met in a bout on Saturday night (October 23, 2021) at the UFC Vegas 41 event from Las Vegas, Nevada at the UFC Apex facility. The first round saw Dawson get a quick takedown. Although Glenn tried to scramble back to his feet, Dawson took control of his back.
In the second and third rounds, Dawson took him down and kept them there. Glenn tried and tried, but Dawson was just too strong for him to do anything. However, late in the third round, Glenn did get on top and put together some strikes. Glenn even locked in a choke, but not enough time was left. The fight ended in a majority draw.
