Hubbard defeated Dakota Bush via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It ended up being a fairly easy victory for Hubbard after he struggled the first five minutes. One would think a large portion of the turnaround in this fight was the fact was the result of Bush's poor cardio due to the fact he accepted the bout less than a week ago, but Hubbard deserves credit for getting his grappling going over the course of the final ten minutes and keeping Bush pinned to the mat. Hubbard hadn't had a single successful takedown in his previous three fights prior to Saturday. The 29-year-old Colorado native and Elevation Fight Team product has now alternated losses and wins in his first half dozen bouts with the company.

August 22, 2020
Hubbard lost to Joe Solecki via submission (Rear-Naked Choke) at 3:51 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Hubbard could not have been any less effective if he tried. After getting popped on the feet a half dozen times by Solecki in the early going, Hubbard allowed his opponent to eventually take his back from a standing position and that was all she wrote. "Thud" appeared to be in great shape heading into this one, but his performance simply wasn't where it needed to be. The 28-year-old Colorado native has an excellent frame (5-foot-10) the division, but consistency has been a major issue for Hubbard. He has now alternated wins and losses in his first five UFC bouts.
