No-shows loss in Vegas

November 20, 2021
Lutz lost to Pat Sabatini via unanimous decision (26-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It's virtually impossible to imagine a 15-minute fight in which Lutz could have looked worse. To say he wasn't the least bit competitive would be the understatement of the century. Lutz was ran out of the building by Sabatini despite entering as a -130 favorite. It seemed as if every single time Lutz attempted an offensive thrust, Sabatini would push forward and take him down and keep him there for an extended period of time. All told, Lutz landed just 36 strikes over the course of the bout, compared to 111 from his opponent. The 27-year-old entered with a little runway because he took a unanimous decision from Kevin Aguilar in his company debut this past May, but he still needs a rebound performance his next time out after this stinker.

Draws Vannata in November

August 25, 2021
Lutz is in line to face Lando Vannata at the UFC event scheduled to take place Nov. 13, Damon Martin of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Lutz earned a pair of decision victories on Dana White's Contender Series before winning his official UFC debut at featherweight against Kevin Aguilar in May. He's a high-volume striker, landing 5.09 significant strikes per minute across those three bouts. He'll have to keep pace with Vannata, another high-volume striker who has amassed 4.67 significant strikes per minute over a much larger sample size. Lutz has a one-inch reach advantage, while Vannata is listed as an inch taller.
