October 21, 2019
Quarantillo (12-2-0) is scheduled to take on Chris Fishgold (18-3-0) in a featherweight fight Dec. 7 at UFC Washington D.C.
Quarantillo will be making his UFC debut in D.C. after earning a contract this summer through his victory over Kamuela Kirk in Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series. He'll get a favorable draw in his initial bout in the Octagon, as the slumping Fishgold has lost two of his last three MMA fights.

Picks up UFC contract
July 24, 2019
Quarantillo defeated Kamuela Kirk via TKO (punches) at 0:22 of Round 3 at Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series. He was one of three fighters to earn a UFC contract following the event.
Quarantillo got off to a slow start, getting taken down several times early by a hungry opponent in search of a submission. Those efforts appeared to sap Kirk's gas tank, however, as Quarantillo had a dominant second round defined heavily by his work to the body of his opponent. Quarantillo had plenty left for the third round as well, as he blitzed his opponent early with a series of knees and punches that forced referee Herb Dean to step in and end the bout. Quarantillo may be a bit up there in age (30) compared to other fighters on the Contender Series, but he showed the boss Tuesday that he has enough cardio and killer instinct to warrant a spot on the UFC roster.
