Ricardo Ramos


Set to fight in March
January 17, 2021
Ramos (14-3-0) will be fighting Zubaira Tukhugov (19-5-1) at a UFC event scheduled for March 13 in Las Vegas, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA.nl reports.
Ramos most recently lost a bout to Lerone Murphy via TKO (punches) back in July and will look to avenge himself in a new fight against Tukhugov that's set to take place in a little under two months. Similar to Ramos, Tukhugov also had a disappointing performance in his last outing as he dropped the fight via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 27-30) due to some unsportsmanlike antics that likely cost him a potential victory. Ramos has youth on his side in this matchup and will need to utilize his strengths on the mat if he wants to avoid losing his second straight fight.

Blitzed by Lerone Murphy
July 15, 2020
Ramos lost to Lerone Murphy via TKO (punches) at 4:18 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Wednesday in Abu Dhabi.
Ramos has shown more good than bad during his time with the company, but this was a clear step backwards. He had all sorts of issues with the power and aggressiveness of Murphy. Although his striking has improved, Ramos is a mat specialist who is at a clear disadvantage whenever a fight is on the feet for an extended period of time. The Brazilian won't turn 25 years of age until next month, but he eventually needs to string together some sort of winning streak in order to be taken seriously at 145 pounds. Ramos falls to 4-2 with the company following Wednesday's setback.
Draws Lerone Murphy at Fight Island
June 16, 2020
Ramos (14-2-0) is scheduled to face Lerone Murphy (8-0-1) in a featherweight fight July 15 on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA.nl reports.
Ramos and Murphy become the latest fighters to commit to make the trek to "Fight Island," with both looking to extend winning streaks. In the case of Ramos, he's emerged victorious in two straight fights, beating Journey Newson via unanimous decision last June and Eduardo Garagorri via rear naked choke in November.
Earns easy submission victory
November 16, 2019
Ramos defeated Eduardo Garagorri via submission (Rear-Naked Choke) at 3:57 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
It was another excellent effort from the 24-year-old Brazilian. In a fight that lasted less than four minutes, Ramos was easily able to force Garagorri to the mat on multiple occasions. Garagorri fought the rear-naked choke that ended the fight quite hard -- even getting back to his feet at one point -- but Ramos showed his upper-body strength in hanging on long enough to secure the stoppage. It was also enough to earn him a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus when the lackluster card was all said and done. Ramos's youth combined with this ability to compete at both bantamweight and featherweight make him a name to keep an eye on moving forward.
Will face Luiz Eduardo Garagorri at UFC Sao Paulo
October 3, 2019
Ramos will face Luiz Eduardo Garagorri in a bantamweight bout at UFC Sao Paulo on Nov. 16, Nolan King of USA Today reports.
The 24-year-old will face Garagorri in his first fight since defeating Journey Newson in a unanimous decision at UFC Minneapolis in June. Ramos is 4-1 through his first five UFC bouts, and will look to build on his success against Garagorri, who has a career 13-0-0 record. Garagorri has height and reach advantages, but Ramos will look to capitalize on his advantage in takedown defense.
Continues strong run in Minneapolis
June 29, 2019
Ramos defeated Journey Newson via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Minneapolis.
It may have ended up being a one-sided fight when all was said and done, but Ramos had to work for his victory. Newson hung around despite being outclassed by Ramos on both the feet and the mat. Ramos has been around for seemingly ever, but he somehow won't turn 24 years old until August. The Brazilian is 4-1 in his first five UFC bouts and he should received a top-15 bantamweight his next time out.
