Quickly taps in Vegas

Aguilera lost to Carlston Harris via submission (anaconda choke) at 2:52 of Round 1 at UFC on ESPN 24 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Aguilera was unable to replicate the success of his 59-second knockout victory over Anthony Ivy in his company debut last June. Aguilera pushed forward for a takedown, left his neck exposed, and it was over from there. The 29-year-old California native had mixed results on the regional scene against subpar competition prior to his UFC arrival, and we should expect more of the same here.

Suffers first UFC defeat

August 29, 2020
Aguilera lost to Sean Brady via submission (rear-naked choke) at 1:47 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Fighting for the second time in just over two months, Aguilera was unable to replicate the success of his 59-second knockout victory over Anthony Ivy in June. Brady presents much stiffer competition than Ivy, and Aguilera struggled with the physicality of his undefeated opponent. What little offense Aguilera was able to generate was the result of counter strikes on the feet. The 28-year-old California native didn't enter the UFC with much of a pedigree, so it is imperative that he rebounds his next time out.

Aguilera is the younger fighter by just under a year.
