Andre Ewell
Mr. Highlight


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.

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.
Takes decision from Irwin Rivera
September 19, 2020
Ewell defeated Irwin Rivera via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) at UFC FIght Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
This fight wasn't as close as the "split decision" term would lead you to believe. Blessed with a significant size and speed advantage over Rivera, Ewell spent the vast majority of the bout picking his opponent apart on the feet. Ewell has been with the UFC for nearly two years now, and the improvements he has made over that time are evident. The one ongoing issue that remains for Ewell is his striking defense. Rivera clipped him with several shots, and although Ewell's chin held up in this one, he is going to have to clean that up if he hopes to have success against better competition. Ewell has now put together back-to-back wins after alternating wins and losses in his first five UFC bouts.
Booked versus Rivera
August 21, 2020
Ewell (undisclosed) is set to take on Irwin Rivera in a bantamweight matchup at UFC Fight Night on Sept. 19, Aaron Bronsteter of reports.
Ewell was handed a six-month suspension from the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation following his victory over Jonathan Martinez at UFC 247. The new booking is a sign that he's moved beyond the issue. It's been a bit of a roller coaster through Ewell's first five UFC bouts, as he's alternated wins and losses each time. He'll aim to buck that trend in September and holds a massive seven-inch reach advantage to go along with a two-inch height discrepancy in his favor. Rivera, on the other hand, is 1-1 with the company after picking up a split-decision victory over Ali Qaisi his last time out in August.
