Lasts 88 seconds at UFC 269
MiddleweightUFC
December 11, 2021
Wright lost to Bruno Silva via TKO (punches) at 1:28 of Round 1 at UFC 269 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
You wouldn't know it from the finish, but Wright actually clipped Silva on a handful of occasions in the opening seconds of the bout. He appeared to be in pretty good shape before the Brazilian unloaded with a vicious combination which turned the tide of the fight. Referee Herb Dean gave Wright every opportunity to survive, but Silva continued to unload and Dean was eventually forced to step in. Wright has legitimate striking skills, but he's also the type of fighter who is willing to eat a punch in order to land a few of his own, and that strategy doesn't work against an opponent with the power of Silva. Wright has now alternated wins and losses in his first four UFC bouts.

Marquez isn't dealing with COVID-19 but won't be in fighting shape. With his withdrawal coming just one day before the day of the fight, there's no time for an opponent to be found for Wright, so he'll have to be left off the card.

May 15, 2021
Wright defeated Jamie Pickett via TKO (punches) at 1:04 of Round 1 at UFC 262 on Saturday in Houston.
ANALYSIS
It was a stellar effort from Wright and one that was made all that impressive by the fact he was coming off his first professional loss, a knockout at the hands of Joaquin Buckley last November. With Pickett quickly pushing forward and tying Wright up along the fence, Wright proceed to connect with countless, unanswered elbows to the side of Pickett's head. Pickett somehow survived that immediate flurry, but Wright finished him off just moments later. "The Beverly Hills Ninja" has now emerged victorious in three of his first four UFC bouts.

Wright will fight Jamie Pickett in a middleweight bout at UFC 262 on May 15, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Wright is looking to get back on track after losing via KO to Joaquin Buckley in November. Pickett is entering the Octagon with a similar mission, as he lost his UFC debut via unanimous decision to Tafon Nchukwi in December. Wright and Pickett both line up at 6-foot-2, but Pickett has a three-inch advantage in reach at 80 inches.
