Levy defeated Shaheen Santana via technical submission (arm-triangle choke) at 0:55 of Round 3 at Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series. After the show, he was one of three fighters to be awarded an official UFC contract.
ANALYSIS
Levy ended up taking this fight on just a few days' notice, stepping up in place of Landon Quinones, who tested positive for COVID-19. Levy was supposed to compete at LFA 95 on Nov. 20, though, so it's not like we came in cold. With respect to the matchup, it was a back-and-forth affair that was mostly contested via grappling exchanges, but Levy did well to contend with the longer limbs of Santana and thwart his submission attempts. Levy was ultimately credited with two takedowns in the matchup, and once he got top position in the third round, he used a tremendous amount of pure strength to smother his opponent in the choke. Santana ended up going out cold before tapping. Levy is worth keeping an eye on, especially considering he mentioned after the show that he can compete at both lightweight and featherweight.
