Impressive submission victory
FeatherweightUFC
August 28, 2021
Sabatini defeated Jamall Emmers via submission (heel hook) at 1:53 of Round 1 at UFC on ESPN 30 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Sabatini is a one-dimensional mat specialist, but has the ability to tap out any many on the roster if given the opportunity, and Emmers allowed him such a chance early in this one. Sabatini had a rough go of it early, getting cracked with a couple shots on the feet before giving up his back. Luckily for Sabatini, Emmers got lazy and allowed him to clamp on a vicious heel hook. Emmers tapped almost immediately. It was quite the impressive finish, but Sabatini's struggles on the feet shouldn't be overlooked. The Pennsylvania native has just two knockout wins in his professional career and it's going to be difficult for him to compete in fights in which he and his opponent remain standing for an extended period of time. Nonetheless, he'll walk away with one of four $50,000 Performance of the Night bonuses for his efforts here.

April 24, 2021
Sabatini defeated Tristan Connelly via unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC 261 on Saturday in Jacksonville.
ANALYSIS
Plenty of knowledgeable people think Sabatini is a legitimate threat moving forward at 145 pounds, and he looked excellent in his company debut. The 30-year-old Pennsylvania native looked calm and composed while racking up 9:58 worth of control time in a 15-minute bout. Sabatini landed just 1-of-5 takedown attempts, but connected on 73 of 98 total strikes (unofficially). Sabatini slowed a bit in Round 3 and that is something he will have to work on moving forward, but this was a strong effort from a newcomer who entered as a -225 favorite.
