Dustin Jacoby


Easily handles John Allan
Light HeavyweightUFC
November 6, 2021
Jacoby defeated John Allan via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27) at UFC 268 on Saturday in New York City.
It certainly wasn't Jacoby's best performance, but he accepted this fight on extremely short notice and still managed to win quite comfortably. Jacoby has proven to be a real threat on the feet throughout his UFC run. He's a high-level kickboxer with legitimate power. Jacoby has a long frame for the division and is deceptively athletic. In short, there's a lot to like here. "The Hanyak" has quietly amassed a 4-0-1 record in his first five bouts with the company and seems likely to get a ranked opponent his next time out. He deserves it.

Jacoby (15-5-1) is scheduled to face John Allan (13-6-0, 1 NC) in a light heavyweight fight Saturday at UFC 268 in New York City, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA.nl reports.
Jacoby was added to Saturday's card just five days in advance after Allan's initial opponent, Aleksa Camur (6-2-0), withdrew due to an unspecified injury. The 33-year-old Jacoby will be putting a six-fight unbeaten streak on the line at Madison Square Garden.

Jacoby defeated Darren Stewart via TKO (punches) at 3:04 of Round 1 at UFC on ESPN 30 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Jacoby is a big guy (6-foot-4) with high-end knockout power. He has fared far better over the course of his second run with the UFC than he did the first. Jacoby was dumped following defeats against Clifford Starks and Chris Camozzi way back in late-2011 and early-2012 before resurfacing last Halloween following an appearance on Dana White's Contender Series. He has since gone on to post a perfect 3-0 (1NC) mark with the company, highlighted by this blasting of the typically-durable Stewart. Jacoby possesses the ability to string together combinations and most importantly, he can eat a punch, having been knocked out just once in his professional career. Jacoby's ceiling is limited due to his age (33 next March) and one-dimensional boxing base, but this current run has already exceeded even the most optimistic expectations.

Jacoby and Ion Cutelaba fought to a split draw (29-28, 28-29, 28-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Jacoby should be thrilled with his draw since he was run out of the building and nearly finished in Round 1. Dustin wasn't the least bit competitive in this fight until Cutelaba badly gassed out. Jacoby allowed Cutelaba to land eight (!!!) takedowns in the first frame alone. He deserves credit for surviving and regaining some semblance of control over the course of the final ten minutes. Jacoby has power, but there's a hole in his grappling game. He would have clearly lost here were it not for Cutelaba's cardio issues. This fight was close and entertaining, and it wouldn't be surprising to see the UFC book these two again in hopes of settling the score once and for all.
