Colombo lost to Marcelo Golm via submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:08 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Colombo wasn't competitive. He was getting blasted on the feet just seconds after the opening bell rang and he was forced to tap out after absorbing a ton of early damage. The 37-year-old Dutch kickboxing specialist is now 0-2-1 in the UFC. He will be lucky to get a third opportunity with the company.

Fantasy AnalysisColombo, a veteran of two UFC fight (0-1-1), was set to welcome the newcomer to the Octagon in the Brazil event. Instead, he'll await a replacement opponent with the card a little over a month away.
Fantasy AnalysisColombo, who suffered an undisclosed injury that lead to the cancellation of his bout against Damian Grabowski in May, is back and ready to take on undefeated newcomer Carlos Felipe. "Godzilla" is 8-2-1 overall and has yet to claim a win in his UFC career since debuting in September 2016.
Fantasy AnalysisColombo was originally set to meet Damian Grabowski in the Octagon for the opening fight of UFC Stockholm. However, due to injuries sustained by both heavyweight fighters, their bout has been cancelled. As of Tuesday, there is no word of a replacement for the bout.
Fantasy AnalysisColombo lasted more than 12 minutes, but it was an ugly effort throughout. Unable to defend himself on the feet, and completely unable to defend the takedown, Colombo was a beaten, bloody mess by the time he finally tapped out in Round 3. Colombo doesn't move well, and at age-36, there's no reason to believe any improvement is forthcoming. He is now 0-1-1 in his first two UFC fights. A release isn't entirely out of the question here.
