Drops decision in UFC debut
June 29, 2019
Newson dropped his UFC debut on Saturday, falling to Ricardo Ramos via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC Fight Night in Minneapolis.
In for an injured Sergio Pettis, Newson actually fought pretty well for a guy who got swept on the judge's scorecards. He displayed an excellent chin and didn't appear to be overwhelmed by the moment. While there might not be a ton here from an offensive standpoint, Newson may very well be the type of fighter who is able to secure a handful of victories based upon grit and determination. It's a lousy long-term profile, but Newson will almost certainly get another chance with the company.
