Torches Ben Rothwell in 32 seconds

Rogerio de Lima defeated Ben Rothwell via TKO (punches) at 0:32 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Entering as a +135 underdog, Rogerio de Lima threw a right leg kick followed by a right hand which led to the set of circumstances that ended the fight. The stoppage by referee Herb Dean was extremely awkward and unprofessional, as Dean -- who has been in a funk for a while now -- essentially called the bout, then rethought his decision, and allowed it to go on for a few seconds before finally pulling the plug. It was a dominant performance from the Brazilian regardless, as Rogerio de Lima picked up his second straight win and third in his past four fights dating back to February 2020, though he surprisingly wasn't selected for an official post-fight bonus after this effort.
Facing Rothwell in November

October 11, 2021
Rogerio de Lima is being targeted for a heavyweight matchup against Ben Rothwell at the UFC event scheduled for Nov. 13, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Rogerio de Lima has amazingly alternated wins and losses in each of his last 11 fights dating back to 2014, most recently taking a decision against Maurice Greene back in May. A low-volume striking approach has not led to many fantasy-friendly scores, however, as Rogerio de Lima hasn't racked up more than 30 significant strikes in a single UFC fight. His primary tool is grappling, so it's worth noting Rothwell has a good-but-not-great 70 percent takedown defense. Rogerio de Lima will still look to get this fight to the mat, which means he'll have to close the distance on three-inch height and reach disadvantages.
Nice rebound effort in Vegas

May 8, 2021
Rogerio de Lima defeated Maurice Greene via unanimous decision (30-26, 30-26, 30-27) at UFC on ESPN 24 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Easy work. In a fight which lasted 15 minutes, Rogerio de Lima was credited with a 166-60 edge in total strikes landed and 14:06 worth of control time, in addition to landing 3-of-4 takedown attempts. In short, there was just 54 seconds in the entire fight in which he wasn't dominating Greene in some form or fashion. A win over "The Crochet Boss" means little for Rogerio de Lima over the long term, but this was a nice bounce-back effort on the heels of his submission loss to Alexander Romanov last November. Rogerio de Lima has somehow alternated wins and losses in his past 10 fights.

Rogerio de Lima lost to Alexander Romanov via technical submission (forearm choke) at 4:48 of Round 1 at UFC on ESPN+ 40 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Rogerio de Lima started out hot despite entering this fight as a (+400) underdog or greater in most sportsbooks. He went to the legs early, and while he was taken down, he landed several power shots each time the fight got back to the feet. Romanov eventually decided to close the distance and initiate a clinch situation against the cage, forcing Rogerio de Lima to carry his weight. Romanov got his second takedown of the round, flattening out Rogerio de Lima on his back and landing ground-and-pound from side control. He eventually used his forearm to put all of his weight on the neck of Rogerio de Lima, who soon went unconscious. Rogerio de Lima has now alternated wins and losses in each of his fights dating all the way back to late-2014.
