Remains perfect in UFC

April 16, 2022
Sabatini defeated T.J. Laramie via unanimous decision (30-26, 30-26, 30-26) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Judges seem to hate giving out 10-8 scorecards despite the recent changes in rules favored by most athletic commissions, but Sal D'Amato, Chris Lee and Anthony Maness had no choice in the second frame here. Sabatini -- who entered as a -630 favorite, largest on the entire card -- was the better fighter in the first and final frames, but it was Round 2 where he put in a show. In the middle five minutes, Sabatini connected on both his takedowns, racked up 3:57 worth of control time, and a 71-0 edge in total strikes landed. That is not a misprint. Laramie didn't land a single strike in the round. Sabatini has cruised to three straight wins to begin his UFC run. A step up in competition is forthcoming.

Dominates Tucker Lutz in Vegas

November 20, 2021
Sabatini defeated Tucker Lutz via unanimous decision (30-26, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Lutz looked awful, but credit Sabatini for coming in and dominating as a slight (+110) betting underdog. Recognizing Lutz didn't have a prayer in the world of slowing down his wresting game, Sabatini fired off 11 takedowns attempts, landing five of them for 10:55 worth of control time. He kept Lutz pinned to the mat for at least half the round in each of the three frames, including a whopping 4:40 in Round 2 alone. The 31-year-old Pennsylvania has come out of nowhere to pick up three victories to begin his UFC career and is clearly a fighter to monitor as the calendar pushes towards 2022.
