Destroys Chance Rencountre
November 2, 2019
Good defeated Chance Rencountre via TKO (punches) at 2:03 of Round 2 at UFC 244 on Saturday in New York City.
Easy work. Fighting in his native New York in front of family and friends, Good simply overwhelmed his opponent. Good did whatever he wanted to offensively and didn't have to worry about Rencountre returning fire. When all was said and done, Good landed 73 total strikes compared to just 23 from Rencountre. When Good is at his best, he looks like a title contender. Unfortunately he has really struggled with consistency throughout his time with the company. Five fights into his UFC career, the 34-year-old Good has now alternated wins and losses in each bout.

Good will take on Chance Rencountre at UFC 244 on Nov. 2, Nolan King of reports.
Good sports a 2-2-0 record in his first four fights with the UFC promotion, losing his most recent bout in February against Demian Maia via submission. Both he and Rencountre have won the majority of their results via KO/TKO, though Good has been more focused on that area than Rencountre during his time in the UFC.
Submitted in Round 1 in Brazil
February 2, 2019
Good was defeated by Demian Maia via submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:38 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on ESPN+ on Saturday in Brazil.
Good had a terrible strategy for this fight. He backed up to the fence to start the fight which allowed Maia to shoot a single leg takedown. During the scramble Maia took his back and got to the backpack position. From there it was only a matter of time before the Brazilian forced the tap.
Draws Brazilian legend in Fortaleza
December 2, 2018
Good will take on Demian Maia in a welterweight matchup in the co-main event of UFC Fortaleza on Feb. 2, reports.
Good sports a 2-1 record since joining the UFC, but that pales in comparison to the experience of Maia, who has been fighting with the company since 2007. While Maia has lost three matches in a row, they have all been against the promotion's elite welterweights, so there is no reason to take him lightly. While Good will enter as the underdog in this bout, it's a good chance for the American to get some name recognition by potentially defeating a well-known fighter in enemy territory. To do so, Good will have to keep the fight standing, which he's been able to do so far with a respectable 85 percent takedown defense. A small sample size of three fights must be noted, however. Maia is by far the best grappler that Good has ever seen, but it's worth noting that Good has never been submitted in 25 professional fights.
Smashes overmatched Ben Saunders Saturday in NYC
November 3, 2018
Good defeated Ben Saunders via KO (punches) at 1:32 of Round 1 at UFC 230 on Saturday in New York City.
That is exactly what a -630 favorite looks like. Good easily ate some quality knees to the gut from Saunders during an exchange along the fence before popping him with a short right hand and finishing him off with some unnecessary ground-and-pound. Referee Herb Dean was right on top of the situation and it was clear that Saunders was out cold almost immediately. As for Good, he continues to look particularity strong. The 33-year-old New Yorker is due for a step up in competition his next time out.
