Facing Ryan Hall in OKC
March 3, 2020
Lamas will fight Ryan Hall in a featherweight bout at UFC Oklahoma City on May 2.
Lamas was cleared in December and began his fight camp after being sidelined since early June after undergoing surgery to address a broken jaw. "The Bully" suffered the injury during his loss to Calvin Katter via TKO (punches) at UFC 238. Meanwhile, Hall has continued to struggle finding opponents for his submission-reliant repertoire, with his last bout coming in July with a unanimous decision victory over Darren Elkins at UFC Fight Night in Sacramento.
Ready to resume career
December 2, 2019
Lamas (jaw) is healthy and ready to begin a fight camp, Danny Segura of MMAJunkie.com reports.
Lamas had a tough day at the office when he was knocked out by Calvin Kattar in Chigcago this summer, which resulted in a broken jaw and ultimately led to surgery. He's since recovered and has informed the UFC he wants to return in early-2020, even if it means moving up 10 pounds from featherweight to lightweight. Lamas would be a smaller lightweight standing at 5-8 with a 71-inch reach, but it would save him some tough cuts and likely make him a fresher man on fight nights.
Reveals fractured jaw
June 11, 2019
Lamas disclosed via a personal Instagram post that he suffered a broken jaw in his UFC 238 loss to Calvin Kattar.
This is the fight game, folks. Lamas has fought some of the most highly-skilled featherweights for the better part of the past decade, but the 37-year-old ran into a hungry and skilled prospect that put him to sleep. Lamas has since underwent surgery to repair three separate fractures and insert titanium plates, so expect the Chicago native to be on the shelf for quite some time. He also mentioned in the post that he's expecting another child in August, so it's difficult to determine if or when he plans to get back in the Octagon. Lamas is now 1-3 in his last four bouts.
Has a rough night in Chicago
June 8, 2019
Lamas lost to Calvin Katter via TKO (Punches) at 4:06 of Round 1 at UFC 238 on Saturday in Chicago.
A lot of people thought that Lamas had a chance to pull the upset in this fight. However, he could not win the striking exchanges against Kattar. Once Kattar started using combinations, he took control of the fight. He landed a hard two punch combination that dropped Lamas and sent him to the floor. "The Bully' has not lost three of his last four fights and might be getting near the end of his career.
Adds bout at UFC 238
April 2, 2019
Lamas will take on Calvin Kattar in a featherweight matchup at UFC 238 on June 8 in Chicago, Phillip Thompson of the Chicago Tribune reports
Despite emerging victorious in his last fight against Darren Elkins, Lamas appears to be delegated to gatekeeper status after losing two of his last three overall. He's a veteran of the sport that made his UFC debut back in 2011, but needs to string together a couple of wins in order to warrant consideration for facing a top-10 opponent. This time around, the promotion will throw Lamas a bone by giving him a fight in his native Chicago against a fighter with just four UFC fights under his belt. Kattar has three victories to his name, two by stoppage, despite possessing a negative striking differential. Basically, that means Kattar is willing to absorb punishment to get hit, and this one once again projects to play out on the feet. Kattar is the younger fighter with height and reach advantages, but Lamas is much more battle-tested and will have the home-town crowd behind him.
