Andre Ewell
Mr. Highlight


Gets outworked, finished in Vegas
July 24, 2021
Ewell lost to Julio Arce via TKO (punches) at 3:45 of Round 2 at UFC on ESPN 27 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Ewell is known as an athletic fighter with heavy hands, but he was kept on the back foot for the majority of this fight, allowing Arce to pick him off when he would try to enter the pocket. Always a tough competitor, Ewell was protesting the finish after being declared out on his feet, but it looked as though he was saved from absorbing further damage. That makes two dominating losses in a row for Ewell, who had previously been on a two-fight winning streak. He falls to 17-8 in professional MMA as a result of the loss.

Fighting again on July 24
May 13, 2021
Ewell will take on Julio Arce in a bantamweight bout at the UFC event on July 24, reports.
Ewell is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Chris Gutierrez at UFC 258. Prior to that, Ewell had won fights over Irwin Rivera and Jonathan Martinez. This will be Arce's first time in bantamweight since 2016.
Battered by Chris Gutierrez
February 13, 2021
Ewell lost to Chris Gutierrez via unanimous decision (26-30, 28-29, 27-29) at UFC 258 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
The remarkable toughness of Ewell is the only reason this one saw the final bell. Ewell was competitive for about a round before Gutierrez smashed him with a kick to the face in the closing seconds of the first frame and controlled the fight the rest of the way. Ewell's durability (he has been knocked out just once in his pro career) and aggressiveness make him an intriguing fighter to watch, but the 33-year-old is sporting a .500 record (3-3) since taking a split decision from Renan Barao in his company debut back in September 2018. Expect Ewell's inconsistent ways to continue moving forward.
Added to Saturday's ticket
February 8, 2021

Pulls out of upcoming fight
February 1, 2021
Ewell withdrew Monday from his scheduled Saturday fight against Cody Stamann for undisclosed reasons, Marcel Dorff of reports.
Ewell was himself a replacement for Merab Dvalishvili, who withdrew in mid-January due to COVID-19. The UFC is reportedly searching for yet another opponent for Stamann, though there's very little time remaining for one to be found.
Stepping in for Dvalishvili on Feb. 6
January 15, 2021
Ewell will replace Merab Dvalishvili on the Feb. 6 card against Cody Stamann, Cole Shelton of reports.
Ewell gets his chance at a ranked opponent on short notice after Dvalishvili was unable to get ready in time due to COVID-19 issues. Stamann wanted to keep the fight on that date, forcing Dvalishvili to withdraw and opening a door for Ewell, who will look to keep his momentum going after back-to-back wins for the first time in his UFC career.
