Viktoriya Dudakova defeated Istela Nunes via TKO (injury), Round 1 - 0:34 at UFC Vegas 77 on Saturday, July 15, 2023, live from the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, NV.

The fight only lasted 34 seconds before a horrific injury forced the fight to end. Dudakova shot for an early takedown. Dudakova grabbed a single leg and easily brought Nunes to the ground. Unfortunately, for Nunes, when she went to brace herself with her left arm as she was being taken to the ground, her arm snapped in half right around the elbow. The arm bent at a scary angle that left Nunes in screaming pain and her arm hanging in different directions. Immediately, Dudakova released her takedown and got out of the way as doctors rushed into the Octagon to tend to Nunes.
