UFC on ESPN+ 34 Results: Overeem Pummels Sakai, OSP Knocks Out Menifield

On Saturday, Sept. 5, the UFC returned to the Apex in Las Vegas for its 34th event on ESPN+. The event once again featured no fans in attendance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the night’s main event, former title challenger Alistair Overeem clashed with hard-hitting Brazilian Augusto Sakai. The veteran Overeem bounced back from a last-second loss to Jairzinho Rozenstruik in late 2019 to stop Walt Harris in May. Sakai eked past Blagoy Ivanov in his last outing, which also came in May.

The event aired live on ESPN+ at 7 p.m. ET.
