Under medical suspension
June 15, 2020
Aguilar has been given a medical suspension through Aug. 13 due to an undisclosed injury, reports.
Aguilar is also not allowed to have any contact until July 29. It remains unclear what specific injury he suffered in his bout versus Charles Rosa at UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas. He lost the bout via split decision. While he got off to a quick start in the bout, he faded during the final ten minutes, which ultimately resulted in his loss.
Crushing setback in Vegas
June 13, 2020
Aguilar lost to Charles Rosa via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
It's a crushing setback for Aguilar in a fight he had to have. The judge's appeared to get this one correct, and that's highly concerning for Aguilar considering he was going up against a below-average striker in a fight that was primarily contested in the stand up. Aguilar got off to a quick start before fading over the course of the final ten minutes. Hit output on the feet was low, and he appeared confused and hesitant to pull the trigger. A former product of Dana White's Contender Series, Aguilar began his UFC run with a pair of unanimous decision wins but has dropped three in a row since.
Fighting Rosa on June 13
June 4, 2020
Aguilar is scheduled to fight Charles Rosa in a featherweight match at the UFC's June 13 event, reports.
Aguilar is coming off back-to-back losses, with his most recent defeat having come against Zubaira Tukhugov in Round 1 at UFC Fight Night 168 in Auckland, New Zealand. The 31-year-old will be at a two-inch height disadvantage come June, but he'll have room to make up for it via his superior reach.
Gets dropped and finished in loss
February 22, 2020
Aguilar lost to Zubaira Tukhugov via TKO (punches) at 3:21 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night 168 in Auckland, New Zealand on Saturday.
Aguilar has been notoriously hard to hurt in his MMA career, but that meant nothing to Tukhugov, who pounced on "The Angel of Death" after landing a huge hook early. While his style of power counterpunching has served Aguilar well in the past, it just allowed Tukuhugov too much time to measure and land the strike. After nice wins in his first two UFC fights, Aguilar has now lost two in a row, which may call into question his extreme countering style. He falls to 17-3 in professional MMA as a result of the loss.
Facing Tukhugov in Auckland
January 8, 2020
Aguilar (17-2-0) is scheduled to face Zubaira Tukhugov (18-4-1) in a featherweight fight Feb. 22 at UFC Auckland, Farah Hannoun of USA Today reports.
Aguilar will look to get back on the winning track after suffering his first UFC loss back in June, when he fell to Dan Ige via unanimous decision. The 31-year-old American has gone three rounds in each of his three fights as a member of the promotion.
