T.J. Laramie
The Truth


Lasts 52 seconds in UFC debut
September 19, 2020
Laramie lost to Darrick Minner via submission (guillotine choke) at 0:52 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
A product of Dana White's Contender Series, Laramie -- who was awarded his contract just last month following a knockout win over Daniel Swain -- couldn't have looked any worse in his company debut. Entering as a whopping -330 favorite, Laramie allowed Minner to grab his neck, pull guard and choke him out. Laramie is going to get another chance but will need a rebound performance if he hopes to see a third opportunity with the company.

Laramie will take on Darrick Minner at the UFC event on September 19, Yahoo Sports reports.
Laramie was awarded a contract a few weeks back after defeating Daniel Swain in Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series. He has a 12-3 record overall in his MMA career.
Second of five contracts awarded
August 11, 2020
Laramie defeated Daniel Swain via TKO (doctor's stoppage) at 5:00 of Round 1 at Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series. He was one of five fighters awarded an official UFC contract after the show.
Laramie looked good both on the feet and on the mat in his shot in the spotlight, as he did a tremendous amount of damaging ground-and-pound, particularly to the body. It's unclear exactly if the apparent ribs injury suffered by Swain was a direct result of Laramie's work or a preexisting injury, but in the end, it didn't matter. While it will go down as a "doctor's stoppage" in the official results, Swain had made it explicitly clear he had no interest in going out for Round 2, claiming he was unable to move and had difficulty breathing. It's tough to get a great read on Laramie based on these five minutes alone, but his winning streak is now at four, and with a full calendar of events ahead, it likely won't be long before he makes his first official walk to the Octagon.
