Crushing defeat in Vegas
MiddleweightUFC
December 18, 2021
Stoltzfus lost to Gerald Meerschaert via submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:58 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It's a potential career-defining moment for Stoltzfus and not in a positive way. Entering as a healthy +200 underdog and the loser of his first two bouts with the UFC, Stoltzfus appeared to be on his way to a decision victory over a talented opponent in Meerschaert before it all fell apart. Both men had their moments in a close Round 1, but Meerschaert appeared to be tiring as the fight progressed, while Stoltzfus got stronger. Unfortunately for Stoltzfus, he allowed his opponent to take his back following a ground exchange midway through the final frame and was tapping out seconds later. Stoltzfus has had difficulties winning fights, but clearly possesses UFC-caliber skills. It will be interesting to see if the company gives him another chance, as most fighters who lose their first three bouts are sent packing.

Still searching for first UFC win
MiddleweightUFC
July 17, 2021
Stoltzfus lost to Rodolfo Vieira via submission (rear-naked choke) at 1:54 of Round 3 at UFC on ESPN 26 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
The finish aside, Stoltzfus held his own in what was a fairly close, back-and-forth fight. He was predictably overwhelmed the second the fight hit the mat, but Stoltzfus -- in just his second UFC bout -- did a nice job on the feet in the early going, mixing it up between the head and body. It got progressively worse for him as the bout went along, but Stoltzfus by no means embarrassed himself. The issues for the 29-year-old at this point is that he has now lost both his bouts with the company and likely needs a win his next time out in order to save his job. Stoltzfus originally earned his UFC opportunity with a win on Dana White's Contender Series back in August 2020.
