Knocked out after fast start
BantamweightUFC
September 18, 2021
Gravely lost to Nate Maness via TKO (punches) at 2:10 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
What a disaster. Entering as a -200 favorite and in firm control the entire way prior to the stoppage, Gravely floored Maness in the closing seconds of Round 1 and may have very well earned the stoppage had his opponent not been saved by the bell. Gravely continued to hunt for the finish in Round 2 before finding himself on the receiving end of a counter right hand from Maness which essentially turned his lights out. Gravely has all sorts of talent, but you are what your record says you are in this sport, and Gravely's UFC mark currently stands at 2-2. Set to turn 30 years of age later this month, Gravely needs to string together some victories in a hurry.

Knockout win to start evening
BantamweightUFC
April 17, 2021
Gravely defeated Anthony Birchak via TKO (punches) at 1:31 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It ended up being an impressive stoppage victory for the biggest (-360) favorite on the card, but it didn't come easy for Gravely. He found himself in a deep guillotine choke late in Round 1 despite dominating the majority of the frame on the feet. It appeared as if Gravely would be forced to tap at one point, but he managed to survive and was in full control from there. On a night with few stoppages, this one will also earn Gravely a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus. A product of Dana White's Contender Series, Gravely has now won back-to-back fights since dropping his company debut to the underrated Brett Johns back in January 2020. Gravely is a legitimate prospect at 135 pounds.

Uses wrestling to secure victory
BantamweightUFC
November 14, 2020
Gravely defeated Geraldo de Freitas via split decision (30-27, 28-29, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Gravely emerged with the victory he came for but de Freitas didn't make it easy. Gravely controlled each of the first two frames on the strength of his wrestling. He landed 5-of-9 takedown attempts en route to 7:01 worth of control time over the course of the first ten minutes. Round 3 contained plenty of wild striking exchanges between the two men and Gravely got the worse of it. The good news for Gravely was that he was able to handle everything de Freitas threw his way without issue and see the final bell to pick up the victory. A product of Dana White's Contender Series, Gravely clearly has some talent but it's fair to wonder if he will struggle in fights in which he is unable to land consistent takedowns. It didn't hurt him on Saturday.
