Losing streak hits three
February 6, 2021
Jaynes lost to Devonte Smith via TKO (doctor's stoppage) at 3:38 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Jaynes was upset with the decision, but it was most certainly the right call given the massive amount of swelling around his right eye. Stepping in on short notice for an injured Alex da Silva (knee), Jaynes had all sorts of issues with the power of the bigger Smith. Jaynes is an offensive fighter who tends to pay very little attention to the defensive aspect of the game, and that burned him once again on Saturday. The 31-year-old began his UFC run with a 41-second KO win over Frank Camacho last June, but has since lost three straight, all via stoppage. Jaynes' willingness to fight anyone at the drop of a hat is a major asset for a company which holds an event seemingly every week, but there just isn't much here to be excited about.
Steps in on short notice
February 1, 2021
Jaynes will take on Devonte Smith in a lightweight bout in Las Vegas on Saturday, MMAJunkie.com reports.
Jaynes steps in on very short notice after Smith's previous opponent, Alex da Silva, withdrew with a knee issue. Jaynes will be looking to revert a two-match losing streak in which he hasn't lasted until the end of the third round. He fell in the first round by TKO against Gabriel Benitez in his last trip to the Octagon. In Smith, he'll face a fighter who's also looking to bounce back from a first-round TKO loss, as he fell against Khama Worthy back in August of 2019 in his latest fight.
Stopped by Gabriel Benitez
December 5, 2020
Jaynes lost to Gabriel Benitez via TKO (strikes) at 4:06 of Round 1 at UFC on ESPN 19 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Jaynes has displayed the ability to generate some offense over the course of his first three UFC bouts, but his defense hasn't been up to par, and that cost him again on Saturday. Jaynes fired off a few crisp strikes but ultimately ate a knee to the body which crumbled him and allowed Benitez to earn the stoppage. Jaynes has fought three times in the past five and a half months, and guys who can step into the Octagon that often are plenty valuable for a company that holds an event seemingly every week, but the long-term ceiling of the 31-year-old appears quite limited.
Benitez bout set for December
November 16, 2020
Jaynes will take on Gabriel Benitez (illness) on Dec. 5, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
The pair had originally been set to square off on Nov. 14, but the matchup was called off in late October due to a positive coronavirus test for Benitez. Instead of finding a new opponent for Jaynes to face on that card, the UFC elected to simply move the bout back by three weeks.
Bout versus Benitez scratched
October 27, 2020
Jaynes won't face Gabriel Benitez in a featherweight bout at the UFC event Nov. 14 after Benitez tested positive for COVID-19, MMAJunkie.com reports.
The fight has been scratched from the Nov. 14 card, and UFC is apparently looking to rebook the matchup at a later date that has yet to be determined.
