Barely gets by Bill Algeo
May 22, 2021
Ramos defeated Bill Algeo via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
This was a close one, with virtually all media outlets scoring the fight split right down the middle. It ended up being a fairly easy victory for Ramos according to the only three men that mattered. After landing nine successful takedowns over the course of his first seven UFC bouts combined, Ramos strung together eight successful tries on Saturday. He did very little with his positional advantage, racking up just 3:23 worth of control times, but the judges valued his ability to get Algeo to the canvas. It was a nice rebound effort on the heels of Ramos' knockout loss at the hands of Lerone Murphy last July. The Brazilian won't turn 26 years of age until August 1. There's still potential here.
Re-booked for UFC Fight Night
April 21, 2021
Ramos (undisclosed) has had his featherweight fight against Bill Algeo re-booked for UFC Fight Night on May 22, MMAJunkie.com reports.
Ramos and Algeo had to be removed from April 17's card in accordance with the UFC's COVID-19 protocols, but they'll ultimately get a chance to face off less than a month later. The last time Ramos entered the Octagon was July of 2020, when he lost to Lerone Murphy via TKO.
Out due to COVID-19 protocols
April 14, 2021
Ramos is out of his fight on Saturday against Bill Algeo due to COVID-19 protocols, Nolan King of USA Today reports.
Ramos did not attend his media day on Wednesday due to COVID-19 protocols, which raised some questions. And now it is confirmed that Ramos is indeed out of his featherweight bout with Bill Algeo. It's unlikely that the UFC will be able to find a new opponent on such short notice. They may elect to just push this bout back a couple weeks.
Added to April 17 event
March 18, 2021
Ramos will take on Bill Algeo in a featherweight bout at the UFC event April 17, Nolan King of USA Today reports.
Ramos was supposed to fight on March 13 against Zubaira Tukhugov, but his opponent had to withdraw due to an undisclosed injury. Ramos won't have to wait too much longer to get his next shot in the Octagon, however. This will be his first fight since last July when he fell via TKO to Lerone Murphy.
Not fighting at UFC Vegas 21
March 9, 2021
Ramos will not fight at Saturday's UFC Vegas 21 after the promotion was unable to find a replacement in time, Guilherme Cruz of MMAFighting.com reports.
Ramos original opponent, Zubaira Tukhugov, was forced to withdraw late last week with an unspecified injury. It's unclear when Ramos will take the Octagon again, but the UFC will likely try to get him in soon. Ramos last fight was in July when he lost via TKO to Lerone Murphy.
