Fades late against Tucker
FeatherweightUFC
August 9, 2020
Jaynes lost to Gavin Tucker via submission (rear-naked choke) at 1:43 of Round 3 at UFC on ESPN+ 32 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Jaynes recorded 13 more significant strikes than his opponent in Round 1, even landing an uppercut that sent Tucker to the mat. Tucker was able to recover, however, and locked in a tight arm-triangle choke at the end of the round that nearly finished the fight. The tides completely turned on Jaynes in Round 2, however, as he was outlanded 63-to-6 in significant striking by a seemingly revitalized Tucker. At this point, Jaynes was lining up looking for one big shot while Tucker was firing off repeated combinations. The third round opened with more of the same, and after eating a knee from Tucker, Jaynes fired a takedown in desperation. Tucker sprawled, took his back and locked in the choke. Jaynes falls to 1-1 in the UFC.

July 22, 2020
Jaynes (16-4-0) is scheduled to face Gavin Tucker (11-1-0) in a featherweight fight Aug. 8 at UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nolan King of USA Today reports.
ANALYSIS
Jaynes returns to the Octagon less than two months after scoring a knockout victory over Frank Camacho in his UFC debut in Las Vegas back on June 20. He'll carry a five-fight winning streak into the matchup with Tucker, who has recorded a win and a loss while fighting just twice in the last two and a half years.
Brilliant effort in UFC debut
FeatherweightUFC
June 20, 2020
Jaynes defeated Frank Camacho via TKO (punches) at 0:41 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Now that's how you make a debut. Jaynes accepted this fight on Wednesday as a late-notice replacement when Matt Frevola was forced to withdraw when one of his corner men tested posted for COVID-19. Jaynes took full advantage of the opportunity. He came out throwing haymakers and virtually all of them connected. He could have gone on pummeling Camacho into submission, but referee Herb Dean (correctly) had seen enough. Jaynes entered Saturday's fight as a +250 underdog. He has won five fights in a row, with the past four coming via stoppage. He'll also take home a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus for his efforts Saturday.
Fighting heavy opponent in debut

June 19, 2020
Jaynes will collect 20 percent of Frank Camacho's purse after Camacho came in two pounds over the lightweight limit, per the UFC.
ANALYSIS
Jaynes wasn't likely to turn down the event, given that it is his debut with the promotion, and he will also get a little extra financial bonus. Unfortunately, it also comes at the expense of surrendering a couple of pounds to his opponent on weigh-in day, though it may not translate as much to Saturday once the fighters get rehydrated.
Signs contract, to face Camacho
FeatherweightUFC
June 18, 2020
Jaynes has signed with the UFC and will step in on short notice to take on Frank Camacho in Las Vegas on Saturday, Farah Hannoun of MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Jaynes has compiled three consecutive first-round stoppages under the banner of Warrior Extreme Cagefighting, and will make his UFC debut with a professional record of 15-4-0. It's a tough draw against a fighter in Camacho who has faced respectable competition in the UFC, although he sports just a 2-4 record with the company. Camacho will also hold three-inch height and five-inch reach advantages when the cage doors close. Keep an eye out for Jaynes' weight cut as well, given the bout was accepted on such short notice.
