Khama Worthy
The Deathstar

USA

Another first-round KO loss
LightweightUFC
March 27, 2021
Worthy lost to Jamie Mullarkey via KO (punches) at 0:46 of Round 1 at UFC 260 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
After looking like an unstoppable force in his first two fights with the UFC, Worthy now finds himself in deep trouble following back-to-back first-round knockout defeats. His chin suddenly appears extremely vulnerable, and that's a serious problem for a guy who prefers to engage in senseless brawls. Worthy was unable to handle a quick left hook from Mullarkey that left him on wobbly legs and effectively ended the fight right there. Set to turn 35 years of age this coming October, there is an overwhelming likelihood that we have already seen the best best Worthy has to offer inside the Octagon.

Worthy will take on face Jamie Mullarkey at UFC 260 on March 27, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Worthy lasted only 1:33 into his fight versus Ottman Azaitar before having it called via TKO (punches). That marked the first loss of Worthy's UFC career thus far, but he will get an opportunity to get back on track against a fighter in Mullarkey who is looking for a jumpstart win after a pair of losses in each of his first two UFC fights. Worthy sports an identical reach as his opponent but does yield an inch of height. He will likely aim to keep things upright, while Mullarkey, who has eight successful takedowns in his first two fights, will likely look for opportunities to take it to the mat.
Suffers first UFC defeat
LightweightUFC
September 12, 2020
Worthy lost to Ottman Azaitar via TKO (punches) at 1:33 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
In a stand-up banger between two guys with a whole bunch of power, Worthy got the worse of it. He ate a big combination from Azaitar and countless follow-up strikes before referee Herb Dean had seen enough and stepped in. Worthy was furious with the stoppage, but he clearly wasn't properly defending himself. Worthy joined the UFC in August 2019 with zero hype and managed to win his first two fights before Saturday's setback. Worthy's power is entirely legitimate, but his brawling style figures to lead to plenty of ups and downs along the way.
Fight pushed back a week

September 7, 2020
Worthy's lightweight matchup against Ottman Azaitar has been moved to the UFC event scheduled for Sept. 12.
ANALYSIS
Worthy enters this matchup as a slight betting favorite of approximately (-140), as the two lightweight prospects are set to compete for the chance to eventually move up the rankings in a stacked division. Worthy is a perfect 2-0 with the company, picking up a pair of finishes against Devonte Smith and Luis Pena. Worthy was given a long medical suspension due to an ankle injury after the Pena fight, but it appears he's received the proper clearance. Azaitar is a 12-0 fighter, winning his UFC debut by way of first-round knockout against Teemu Packalen back in September of 2019. Worthy will have three inch advantages in both height and reach.

Worthy will take on Ottman Azaitar at the UFC event on September 5, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Worthy is coming off a victory over Luis Pena back in June. He was given a 180-day medical suspension after ankle and knee injuries, but it appears he was able to clear with doctors and will fight in early September.
Facing medical suspension
LightweightUFC
June 29, 2020
The Nevada Athletic Commission announced Monday that Worthy was suspended 180 days after sustaining right ankle and left knee injuries in his win over Luis Pena at UFC Apex in Las Vegas on Saturday, Nolan King of USA Today reports.
ANALYSIS
The suspension will keep Worthy from re-entering the Octagon until late December, though he could be cleared for competition before then with full clearance of both injuries from an orthopedic doctor. With the win over Pena, Worthy has now emerged victorious in both of his first two fights under the UFC banner and owns a 16-6-0 record overall during his eight-year MMA career.
