Alan Patrick
Dealing with possible fractured orbital
LightweightUFC
October 9, 2018
Patrick has been suspended 180 days by the Nevada Athletic Commission pending a physician clearance of a left orbital fracture, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Entering this fight, Patrick had been a betting favorite on a three-fight winning streak. He was nearly tripled up in the striking department by Holtzman, however, who landed 55 of his 73 significant strikes to the head, as well as 40 total ground strikes. Holtzman got stronger as the fight went on, and dealt damage significant enough that Patrick could be on the shelf until April 5, pending medical clearance.

Patrick lost to Scott Holtzman via KO (elbows) at 3:42 of Round 3 at UFC 229 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Patrick has been with the UFC for five years but he has fought just seven times during that span. When you battle injuries to that extent, you can't have off nights like the Brazilian did on Saturday. Patrick landed just 19 total strikes over the course of the bout and he failed on all six of his takedown attempts. All this while entering the night as a -320 favorite. Patrick needs to get back on the horse ASAP.

Patrick defeated Damir Hadzovic via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Belem, Brazil
ANALYSIS
Patrick is not afraid to use his wrestling to win fights, and that was the case again here. Hadzovic could not stop his takedowns, so he continually went to them over and over during the fight. On a few occasions, Hadzovic threatened with takedowns, but Patrick was able to escape and continue to push the pace from the top. This was Patrick's first fight since 2016, and he picks up his 15th professional win.

He comes in with a 14-1 career record, having suffered his lone defeat to Mairbek Taisumov in June of 2015.

Cruises to unanimous decision win over Stevie Ray
LightweightUFC
September 24, 2016
Patrick defeated Stevie Ray via unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Brasilia, Brazil.
ANALYSIS
It was a stellar effort from Patrick despite the fact he entered the bout as a +145 underdog. He landed five of eight takedown attempts and racked up 12:01 worth of control time, a truly insane number for a 15-minute fight. Patrick doesn't have much power, but he's an above average grappler. At age-33, Patrick's ceiling is fairly limited, but he is now 4-1 in his first five UFC fights.
