Collier lost to Carlos Felipe via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 28-29) at UFC 263 on Saturday in Glendale, Arizona.
ANALYSIS
It's a tough loss for Collier in a fight in which there was very little separating the two men. Collier's best round was the first. He made a concerted effort to damage the lead leg of Felipe and it appeared to work. He became less effective in that area as the fight progressed, and Felipe wrestled away the momentum. Collier remains in the midst of a remarkable streak in which he has alternated wins and losses in his past nine fights dating back to December 2014. The good news is that the 32-year-old Missouri native should be due for a victory his next time out.

Upsets Gian Villante

December 5, 2020
Collier defeated Gian Villante via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC on ESPN 19 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Collier becomes the 13th fighter in UFC history to register a victory in three different weight classes. He deserved this one. Facing an immobile opponent who provided a stationary target, Collier kept up the pressure. He fired off plenty of leg kicks in the early going before wearing Villante down with volume in the later rounds. Villante landed more than his fair share of strikes, but Collier's chin held up. This wasn't a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination, but it was a nice effort by Collier as a underdog on the heels of his 45-second knockout loss at the hands of Tom Aspinall this past July.

Lasts 45 seconds in Abu Dhabi

July 25, 2020
Collier lost to Tom Aspinall via TKO (punches) at 0:45 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
ANALYSIS
The very definition of roster depth, Collier has now alternated wins and losses in his first seven UFC bouts. The biggest issue of all is that he has been knocked out in three of those four defeats. Collier's stopping power has all but vanished since joining the company, and that's a major issue given the concerns about his chin. He also didn't appear to be in tremendous physical shape for this bout. The 31-year-old Missouri native needs a rebound performance in the worst way his next time out.
