Wins despite repeated eye pokes

Turman defeated Sam Alvey via split decision (28-27, 27-28, 28-27) at UFC on ESPN 30 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
What should have been a rout turned into a nail-biter due to the fact Turman was unable to stop himself from extending his fingers and thus repeatedly poking Alvey in the eye. Referee Chris Tognoni saw fit to dock Turman two points in Round 3 alone, but it was the right call given the repeated warnings that Turman failed to obey. The most promising thing of all for the Brazilian is that he managed to eat all 114 of Alvey's strikes without issue, on the heels of back-to-back first-round knockout losses to Bruno Silva and Andrew Sanchez. This was clearly a step in the right direction for Turman, although a win over Alvey -- who almost certainly is done with the company after this loss -- means very little in 2021. The 25-year-old will have to put together another strong effort his next time out.

Turman will fight Sam Alvey at the Aug. 28 UFC event, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Turman has gotten off to a rocky start in UFC with a 1-3 record across his first four fights. He'll face a similarly struggling Alvey, who has gone 0-5-1 across his last six bouts.

Turman lost to Bruno Silva via KO (punches) at 4:45 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Turman's struggles continue. The Brazilian has had all sorts of difficulty with his striking defense early in his UFC run, but it was his inability to defend Silva's ground-and-pound that was his undoing on Saturday. Appearing as if he had never trained off of his back before, Turman allowed Silva the openings to connect with vicious unanswered shots from top position. Turman won't turn 25 years old until late next month and time is firmly on his side, but he is now 1-3 in his first four UFC bouts and there is no guarantee the company will allow him to work through his issues at the highest level.

Turman (illness) will take on Bruno Silva in a middleweight matchup at a UFC event scheduled for June 19, Guilherme Cruz of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Turman's UFC record sits at 1-2 after his loss to Andrew Sanchez via first-round stoppage last August. He was set for an opportunity to get back on the winning track in February against Aliaskhab Khrizriev, but was ultimately forced to withdraw after coming down with pneumonia (as well as dealing with COVID-19 the prior September). He'll now take on a former M-1 champion in Silva, who is fresh off a two-year suspension due to a positive drug test.

Turman withdrew from his scheduled Feb. 6 fight against Aliaskhab Khizriev due to pneumonia, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Turman won't be able to get back into fighting shape within a month, as he's expected to remain on medication for two more weeks. It's unclear whether the UFC plans on bumping the fight back or if Khizriev will remain on the card against a new opponent.
