Quickly taps in late-notice debut

Ronderos lost to David Dvorak via submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:18 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Ronderos never had a prayer against a high-level opponent in a fight which he accepted 24 hours ago and entered 2.5 pounds overweight. The UFC was committed to trying to keep Dvorak on this card, and Ronderos was willing to step in after Raulian Paiva was forced to withdraw due to weight cutting issues. While disappointing, Ronderos' performance is ultimately irrelevant. The company will undoubtedly give the 26-year-old Colombian another opportunity due to his willingness to "save" this fight. We'll see how Ronderos looks with a full training camp under his belt.

Ronderos came in at 128.5 pounds at Friday's weigh-in which is 2.5 pounds above the maximum weight for the flyweight division, Amy Kaplan of FanSided.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The fact that Ronderos missed weight is not really a shock considering he took this fight on a day's notice. The bout against David Dvorak will still go on as planned but Ronderos will have to forfeit 20 percent of his purse for being overweight.
Fighting on 24 hours notice

Ronderos is stepping in to fight David Dvorak at UFC Vegas 27 on Saturday after Dvorak's initial opponent, Raulian Paiva, was forced to withdraw Friday morning, Damon Martin of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Ronderos will be making his UFC debut on just over 24 hours' notice. Paiva was forced to withdraw from the fight after he was hospitalized Thursday while trying to cut weight. The 26-year-old Colombian fighter last appeared in the octagon when he defeated Eric Shelton via split decision to defend his Warrior Xtreme Cagefighting flyweight title in December of 2019. He's won 13 straight dating back to his amateur career and will look to turn heads with an impressive victory against Dvorak, who has found his way into the UFC rankings winning his first two fights in the promotion.
