Leans on takedown in victory
LightweightUFC
April 30, 2022
Levy defeated Mike Breeden via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27) at UFC on ESPN 35 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Levy couldn't defend the takedown in his loss to Rafa Garcia this past November, so of course he completely flipped the script in this one and used his wrestling game to secure his first UFC win. Levy failed on all six of his attempts in Round 3, but connected on 9-of-10 tries over the course of the opening ten minutes, which was more than enough to secure him the unanimous decision win. Levy is 30 years of age, but has just eight professional fights under his belt. He's proven to be a decent wrestler and has some submission skills, but his long-term ceiling will likely be limited by his lack of experience and limited power in his hands.

Can't defend takedown in loss
LightweightUFC
November 20, 2021
Levy lost to Rafa Garcia via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Levy entered this event with just six professional fights under his belt despite turning 30 years of age this past September. This was his official UFC debut after a submission win on Dana White's Contender Series a little over a year ago, and it didn't go particularly well. Levy's fight IQ appeared highly questionable and his takedown defense non-existent. Any momentum he managed to generate on the feet was immediately overshadowed by the fact he couldn't stay off of his back. A lack of experience likely factored into the result, but Garcia isn't a high-level opponent, and the fact Levy struggled with him is a poor sign regarding what to expect from him moving forward.
