Fiuza regained consciousness minutes later. A medical update regarding Fiuza hasn’t been made public as of the writing of this story.

Torres is a flyweight prospect to watch just a few years after flyweights were considered the forgotten class of the sport. UFC President Dana White had previously considered dismantling the flyweight division altogether when Henry Cejudo held the belt.

As for Fiuza, he suffered his first professional loss after a win over Luiz Henrique Muniz in Fortal Combat MMA back in June.

In the Action Fight 21 main event, Igor Barbosa and Egleison Santos competed in a catchweight bout at 161lbs.
