The first fight between two women in UFC history occurred on February 23, 2013. Ronda Rousey defended the UFC women’s bantamweight title in that contest with a first-round submission win over Liz Carmouche. Rousey secured the win via armbar. On Saturday, nearly 10 years after Rousey’s historic victory, Mayra Bueno Silva became the first fighter in the UFC women’s 135-pound division to win a fight via kneebar. Bueno Silva put her name in the UFC record books by stopping Lina Lansberg at the 4:46 mark of the second round of their preliminary card bout.

Bueno Silva was not the only fighter to walk away from UFC Vegas 69 with a win and a new UFC record. Rising star Erin Blanchfield put her name on several UFC women’s flyweight division records with her second-round submission win over former UFC strawweight champion Jessica Andrade.

Another fighter who broke records at UFC Vegas 69 was Jim Miller. Unfortunately for the UFC veteran, he did not walk away from the event with a win. Alexander Hernandez defeated Miller via decision in the main card opener.

Below, we look at all the significant UFC stats for 2023.
