Wrestling leads to easy win
FeatherweightUFC
June 12, 2021
Evloev defeated Hakeem Dawodu via unanimous decision (29-27, 29-27, 29-27) at UFC 263 on Saturday in Glendale, Arizona.
ANALYSIS
Evloev had to survive a split decision against Nik Lentz this past January in order to retain his undefeated record, but there were no such concerns following this effort. Blessed with an overwhelming edge in the grappling game, Evloev landed 7-of-9 takedown attempts and racked up 8:10 worth of control time over the course of the first two rounds alone. Dawodu did pick up the pace in the striking game during the final frame, but Evloev was never really in trouble. Just 27 years of age and the owner of an elite wrestling game, there don't figure to be too many featherweights dying to get into the Octagon against Evloev. He is now a perfect 5-0 with the UFC.

Evloev will fight Hakeem Dawodu in a featherweight bout at UFC 263 on June 12, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
This is a major bout, as both Evloev and Dawodu are undefeated at the UFC level, sporting records of 4-0 and 5-0, respectively. All of Evloev's victories have come via decision; four of Dawodu's five wins were by decision as well.
Survives to remain undefeated

January 23, 2021
Evloev defeated Nik Lentz via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) at UFC 257 on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
ANALYSIS
This one didn't come easy for the undefeated Evloev, and it was especially difficult when you take into account he entered as the biggest favorite on the card at -705. The truth of the matter is that he was in pretty good shape for a good portion of the fight outside of Round 1, where Lentz threatened with a deep guillotine choke. Evloev managed to survive that and easily outclassed Lentz on the feet the rest of the way. The soon-to-be 27-year-old Evloev would appear to be an especially bright prospect, but all four of his UFC victories have come via decision, and that could potentially be a cause for concern moving forward.

Evloev is slated to face Nik Lentz in a featherweight fight Saturday at UFC 257 in Abu Dhabi after Mike Grundy withdrew from the bout when one of his team members tested positive for COVID-19, Mike Heck of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Evloev was previously scheduled to fight Dec. 5 in Las Vegas, but the bout was cancelled after he tested positive for COVID-19. The 26-year-old has since recovered from the virus and will step in as a short-notice replacement for Grundy, whom Evloev coincidentally defeated in his last trip to the Octagon back in July on Fight Island.
