Fili is set to take on Lando Vannata at a UFC event on Sept. 17, Marcel Dorff of Eurosport.nl reports.
ANALYSIS
Fili currently boasts a 21-9-0 record in the Featherweight division of the UFC, but he is coming off a tough Round 1 TKO against Joanderson Brito in April. The 31-year-old will look to bounce back from his loss earlier this year when he takes on Vannata.

Fili lost to Joanderson Brito via TKO (punches) at 0:41 of Round 1 at UFC on ESPN 35 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
What a disaster. Entering as a -250 favorite, one of the biggest on the entire card, Fili ate a sweeping right hook early in the proceedings which essentially ended his evening right there. Fili has been extremely inconsistent over the course of his long UFC run, but he's typically been durable, as this was just the third knockout defeat of his career. Fili is somehow still just 31 years of age, but he entered into "gatekeeper" status a long time ago. The Team Alpha Male product is just 1-3 (1NC) in his last five fights dating back to January 2020, and the one victory in there came via split decision.

Fili will fight Joanderson Brito at UFC Vegas 53 on April 30, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Fili will look for his first win since June 2020 when he defeated Charles Jourdain via split decision at UFC on ESPN 10. Since then, he lost to Bryce Mitchell via unanimous decision at the end of 2020 and registered a no-decision during his last fight against Daniel Pineda in June of 2021.
Eye poke results in no-contest
FeatherweightUFC
June 27, 2021
Fili fought Daniel Pineda to a no-contest (accidental eye poke) at 0:46 of Round 2 at UFC Vegas 30 on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Fili quite possibly looked the best he ever has under the UFC banner in Round 1, as he dominated the striking exchanges en route to a 10-8 round. While Pineda survived by holding on to Fili in half guard, it was clear he was on the ropes. To his credit, he came out swinging violently in Round 2, but Fili was able to slip his shots and connect with powerful kicks -- some which would have buckled any mere mortal. With Pineda almost flailing while attempting to turn the tide, Fili pushed off to create space and his finger inadvertently connected with his opponent's eye. Pineda pleaded with doctors that he was OK, but when he was unable to see the number of fingers the doctor was holding up, Herb Dean was forced to call off the proceedings. Despite the no-contest, Fili's stock undoubtedly goes up here.

Fili will square off against Daniel Pineda on the UFC's June 26 card, Cole Shelton of BJPenn.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Fili's tenured career within the promotion has been up and down throughout, winning no more than two fights in a row during his career. He will look to avoid back-to-back losses for the first time with the UFC later this month, squaring off against a fighter in Pineda who is reeling from three losses in his last four bouts and five in his last seven.
Inconsistent ways continue
FeatherweightUFC
October 31, 2020
Fili lost to Bryce Mitchell via unanimous decision (27-30, 28-29, 27-30) at UFC FIght Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Fili landed the cleaner, harder shots throughout the course of the fight, but his complete inability to stay off of his back was ultimately his undoing. Fili hadn't been taken down in a fight in nearly three years, but Mitchell got him to the mat on seven separate occasions on Saturday. Fili fought hard off of his back, but he simply spent too much time being controlled on the ground to generate enough offense to win. Fili is capable of putting forth a quality performance here and there, but his seven-year UFC run has been marred by inconsistency. Fili has alternated wins and losses in his past four bouts.
