Billy Quarantillo


Hangs tough with Shane Burgos
November 6, 2021
Quarantillo lost to Shane Burgos via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC 268 on Saturday in New York City.
It was an impossible task to follow up the Justin Gaethje v. Michael Chandler fight, but Quarantillo and Burgos did their best. It's nothing short of a miracle that "Billy Q" saw the final bell considering he fought the vast majority of the bout on one leg after Burgos cracked him with repeated vicious leg kicks. Quarantillo's cardio and ability to keep a high pace is exceptional, and that allowed him to remain competitive for the duration of what could have very well been a lopsided fight. Burgos is a talented opponent, and Quarantillo showed he could compete at that level without issue. Billy has shown well since debuting in the UFC in December 2019, sporting a 4-2 mark in his first half dozen bouts with the company. His next challenge will be defeating some better competition.

Next fight on tap
September 3, 2021
Quarantillo will fight Shane Burgos at UFC 268 on Nov. 6, Mike Heck of MMA Fighting reports.
Quarantillo will come into this bout having won nine of his last 10 fights and most recently defeated Gabriel Benitz via third-round TKO in mid-July. Burgos is in the midst of a two-fight skid for the first time in his career but should make for one of the tougher opponents Quarantillo has faced in his career as he looks to get back in the win column again.
Blows past Gabriel Benitez
July 17, 2021
Quarantillo defeated Gabriel Benitez via TKO (punches) at 3:40 of Round 3 at UFC on ESPN 26 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Quarantillo rebounded in a major way from his loss to Gavin Tucker last December with his best performance inside the octagon. He jumped Benitez in Round 1 and went on to dictate the pace of the fight for the remainder of the bout. Benitez was a battered and bloody mess by the time it was over and his remarkable toughness was the only reason this fight lasted as long as it did. "Billy Q's" defense needs work, but his UFC run has been a resounding success. The 32-year-old is now sporting 4-1 mark since arriving on the scene back in December 2019.
New opponent lined up
June 8, 2021
Quarantillo will now take on Gabriel Benitez in a featherweight bout at the UFC event on July 1, Carlos Contreras Legaspi of ESPN Deportes reports.
Herbert Burns was forced out of the original booking, so Burns will step in with over a month to prep. Quarantillo had won eight straight fights before dropping his last decision to Gavin Tucker in mid-December. Benitez is coming off a win last December over Justin Jaynes by TKO.

Quarantillo will look to bounce back following a December loss to Gavin Tucker at UFC 256. He had won three consecutive fights before then. Burns, who is 2-1 in his UFC career, will also be looking to get back on track after losing to Daniel Pineda via submission at UFC 252 back in August.
Win streak snapped at eight
December 12, 2020
Quarantillo lost to Gavin Tucker via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC 256 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
It's the first UFC defeat for the man they call "Billy Q". Despite entering as a pretty significant betting favorite (-185), Quarantillo had all sorts of difficulty with the pressure of Tucker. He constantly found himself on the defensive, and that allowed Tucker to land the cleaner, harder shots throughout the course of the fight. Quarantillo did a pretty nice job just to see the final bell, all things considered. The loss snaps an eight-fight winning streak for Quarantillo and is his first setback since April 2016.
