Scheduled for UFC 240
WelterweightUFC
June 26, 2019
Price is scheduled to fight Geoff Neal in a welterweight matchup at UFC 240 on July 27 in Edmonton, Alberta, Farah Hannoun of MMA Junkie reports.
ANALYSIS
Price is coming off an impressive knockout victory over veteran Tim Means, and now has five wins in eight opportunities with the company. He'll take on a promising newcomer in Neal, who has won his first three fights in UFC. Price enters with a one-inch advantage in both height and reach, and he's also been more effective with the takedown over his UFC tenure. It's a small sample size for Neal, but on paper, Neal has far superior striking numbers, landing at more than double the mark of Price while sporting better striking defense as well.

Stuns Tim Means with highlight reel KO
WelterweightUFC
March 9, 2019
Price defeated Tim Means via KO (punch) at 4:50 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Wichita, Kansas.
ANALYSIS
Never one to engage in a snooze fest, Price once again finds himself in the mix for a post-fight bonus. If his knockout of Means doesn't earn him an extra $50,000, an investigation needs to be opened. While the finish was brilliant, Price struggled to make it that far. His striking defense remains woefully inadequate and the 29-year-old Floridian struggles in anything other than an all-out brawl. His ultra-aggressive style will result in both a fair share highlight reel wins and a fair share of losses. Price seems likely to get picked apart if he faces better competition. You simply cannot compete against the best fighters in the world if you completely ignore your defensive game. He came out on top on Saturday. Every single one of Price's first nine UFC bouts (6-2, 1NC) have ended via stoppage.
Doesn't last long against Abdul Razak Alhassan at UFC 228
WelterweightUFC
September 8, 2018
Price lost to Abdul Razak Alhassan via knockout (punches) at 0:43 of Round 1 at UFC 228 on Saturday in Dallas.
ANALYSIS
Price decided to engage Alhassan is a straight striking contest. This did not work out for him. Alhassan came out and threw bombs from the start. Price did not stay in the fight long until Alhassan connected with a huge shot and put him out. Price had won back-to-back fights before this fight. However, now he will need to go back to the drawing board and perhaps change his strategy.
Stuns Randy Brown with hammerfists Saturday in Boise
WelterweightUFC
July 14, 2018
Price defeated Randy Brown via TKO (punches) at 1:09 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Boise, Idaho.
ANALYSIS
It wasn't how he drew it up, but Price will take it. Finding himself in a compromising position on his back along the fence, Price waited for an opening before unleashing countless hammerfists to the face of his opponent. Brown was out cold after three or four of them and referee Herb Dean was so shocked that he was late to step in and called off the bout. Price's defense and all-around game remain a question mark, but his power is legit and he proved that on Saturday. The 28-year-old is now 4-1 (1NC) in his first six UFC bouts.
Added to Boise card

Price will take on Randy Brown in a welterweight matchup at UFC Boise on July 14, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Price was supposed to throw down with Belal Muhammad at UFC Utica on June 1, but an undisclosed reason forced him to withdraw from the bout. It was probably a blessing in disguise for Price, as Muhammad went on to fight at the event and picked up his fourth consecutive victory. Now, Price will draw one of Muhammad's victims in Brown, who is 4-2 under the UFC banner. Price will concede both height and reach advantages to Brown, who has a much better striking differential during his UFC tenure.
Pulled from Utica card
WelterweightUFC
May 28, 2018
Price will no longer face Belal Muhammad at UFC Utica on June 1 due to an undisclosed reason, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
It's unclear exactly what rendered Price unfit to compete, but the 28-year-old will presumably be on the shelf for the foreseeable future. An American Top Team Product, Price is 3-1 (1 NC) in the UFC with each of his wins coming by way of stoppage. There's room to grow for the Florida native, but it might be a bit before his next move is determined.
