MiddleweightUFC
December 6, 2021
Borralho will make his UFC debut Jan. 15 against Jamie Pickett, Guilherme Cruz of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Borralho had previously been set to debut against Dustin Stoltzfus on Dec. 18 but was forced to withdraw due to visa issues. Those have evidently been resolved or will be resolved soon, as he's now set to debut less than a month later. Borralho earned his UFC contract with a first-round TKO victory over Jesse Murray in the Contender Series in October, giving him seven straight professional victories. His opponent, Pickett, also came through the Contender Series. He lost his first two fights under the UFC banner before bouncing back to win a unanimous decision over Laureano Staropoli in October.

Second time the charm at DWCS
MiddleweightUFC
October 19, 2021
Borralho defeated Jesse Murray via TKO (strikes) at 1:41 of Round 1 at Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series. After the show, he was one of four fighters to be awarded an official UFC contract.
ANALYSIS
Borralho entered this fight as high as a (-1000) favorite in some sportsbooks, and he looked every bit the part. He waited for an over-matched Murray to close the distance before landing devastating counters, looking completely composed and in control for as long as the fight lasted. A straight left followed by a right hook crumbled his opponent before some ground-and-pound ultimately closed the show. This was actually the second time in three weeks that Borralho competed on Contender Series, though his last trip -- a unanimous decision win over Aaron Jeffery -- wasn't enough to convince White he deserved a roster spot. This time around, he got the finish he needed despite moving up a weight class to light heavyweight. The telecast noted that Borralho has fought as low as 175 pounds in the past, but he'll presumably debut at middleweight, where he'll enter on a 10-fight winning streak.
