Shocking loss at UFC 268
November 6, 2021
Hawes lost to Chris Curtis via KO (punches) at 4:27 of Round 1 at UFC 268 on Saturday in New York City.
What a disaster. Entering as a -335 favorite, the second biggest on the entire card, Hawes dominated the entire fight prior to the finishing sequence. Known as a solid wrestler, Hawes did whatever he wanted on the feet. He got off first in every striking exchange between the two until Curtis landed one huge left hand which sent him stumbling and led to the stoppage. Hawes entered on a roll, having won seven fights in a row, including his first three in the UFC, but this was a defeat he simply could not afford against an opponent making his company debut.
Curtis fight back on
October 13, 2021
Hawes will take on Chris Curtis in a middleweight bout at UFC 268 on Nov. 6, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Hawes was supposed to fight Deron Winn last Saturday, but Curtis stepped in later. Hawes decided to decline the opportunity to face a new opponent on just 24 hours notice, so now the two will do battle in a few weeks time. Hawes is coming off a unanimous decision over Kyler Daukaus back in May.
Bout called off
October 8, 2021
Hawes' middleweight fight against Chris Curtis on Saturday at UFC Vegas 39 has been cancelled, Mike Heck of reports.
The UFC tabbed Curtis to step in and replace Deron Winn during this weekend's event, but Hawes declined the opportunity to fight a new opponent on only 24 hours' notice. As a result, Hawes looks like he won't be featured on this weekend's card at all.
Receives new opponent
October 8, 2021
Hawes will face Chris Curtis in a middleweight bout at UFC Fight Night on Saturday rather than Deron Winn (undisclosed) as previously scheduled, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Hawes and Winn were originally slated to fight in July, but a rib injury to Winn led to things being pushed back. Unspecified health issues led to Winn withdrawing again for Saturday, leading Curtis to step in on short notice to make his UFC debut. Hawes has yet to lose in UFC and last fought Kyle Daukaus in May, whom he defeated via unanimous decision.
Winn fight pushed back
July 14, 2021
Hawes will now fight Deron Winn at the UFC event on Oct. 9, Brett Okamoto of reports.
Winn was forced to withdraw from the scheduled bout on July 17 due to a ribs injury. Instead of trying to find Hawes a new opponent for that date, the UFC just decided to push the middleweight bout back to October. Hawes last fought in May when he beat Kyle Dakaus by unanimous decision.
