Winn will look to improve his record to 7-0 as a professional fighter Friday.

Survives brawl for first UFC win

June 22, 2019
Winn defeated Eric Spicely via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night 154 in Greenville, South Carolina on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Winn came out throwing hammers early and often in this one, choosing not to test his opponent's BJJ black belt on the ground. The AKA product landed shots that likely would have put down most fighters, but Spicely hung tough, forcing him to settle for the decision victory. While we didn't see his entire skill set here, Winn is a strong wrestler who throws in combinations and has dynamite in his fists, which should make him fun to watch at middleweight. Despite being known for his wrestling, Winn made history in his company debut by landing 169 significant strikes -- a new middleweight record. He improves to 6-0 in professional MMA as a result of the victory, and will go home $50,000 richer after receiving a Fight of the Night bonus.
Third Greenville opponent finalized
MiddleweightUFC
June 17, 2019
Winn will now take on Eric Spicely in a middleweight matchup at UFC Greenville on Saturday, Nolan King of MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
After his second opponent, Bruno Silva, withdrew from their scheduled fight, Winn was left with less than a week to find a replacement willing to face him. In steps Spicely, who is making his UFC return after going 2-4 with the company in a stretch that lasted from 2016 to 2018. Spicely has won back-to-back fights on lesser circuits since his release, and UFC brass ultimately deemed him ready to face the debuting wrestling prospect. Spicely's offensive wrestling was always superior to his offensive striking during his UFC days, so look for the two combatants to try to find takedowns early and often.
Another opponent change

June 16, 2019
Winn is now in search of his third opponent for UFC Greenville on June 22, as Ariel Helwani of ESPN reports that Bruno Silva has withdrawn from the fight.
ANALYSIS
Winn was originally scheduled to face Markus Perez, so Silva's withdrawal means it will be his third opponent -- provided the UFC is able to successfully find a replacement just six days from the fight. The hope is Winn will remain on the card, but the situation is worth revisiting before Saturday's lineup lock.
New opponent for debut
MiddleweightUFC
May 16, 2019
Winn will now take on Bruno Silva at UFC Greenville on June 23 following the withdrawal of Markus Perez, Nolan King of Flocombat reports.
ANALYSIS
The reasons for the withdrawal of Perez are unknown at this time, but Winn will now draw an opponent making his debut as well. Silva is a 29-year-old Brazilian prospect with a 19-6 overall record, but has won 14 of his last 15 fights overall. There's certainly finishing power here, as Silva has accrued 16 of his 19 wins via KO/TKO, so Winn will look to negate that with his wrestling talents in this preliminary bout.
