Hammered in UFC debut
LightweightUFC
September 18, 2021
Jenkins lost to Zhu Rong via TKO (punches) at 4:35 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Jenkins' UFC debut didn't go all that well, but he will walk away with 20 percent of Rong's purse after the latter missed weight by two pounds on Friday morning. It would have been interesting to see what Jenkins -- who is noted for his power -- could have done in an extended kickboxing match, but his inability to stay off of his back ensured he had no chance of winning this fight. Jenkins is going to get another fight with the company, especially after his willingness to go through with this one following Rong's weight miss, but there doesn't appear to be much to be excited about here.
