Preston Parsons


Not competitive in UFC debut
July 17, 2021
Parsons lost to Daniel Rodriguez via TKO (punches) at 3:47 of Round 1 at UFC on ESPN 26 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
In for Abubakar Nurmagomedov (undisclosed) on short notice, Parsons' UFC debut was an unmitigated disaster. He was content engaging Rodriguez in a back-and-forth brawl, which is shocking considering all nine of Parsons' professional victories have come via submission. Prior to his UFC arrival on Saturday, Parsons' biggest fight was a first-round knockout loss to Mike Perry in an event titled "House of Fame 3 - Riverside Beatdown" back in July 2015. This result aside, Parsons is likely to get another opportunity with the company due to his willingness to "save" this bout.
