Di Chirico lost to Abdul Razak Alhassan via KO (head kick) at 0:17 of Round 1 at UFC on ESPN 30 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Hey, it can happen to anyone. Entering as a healthy -265 favorite, Di Chirico, who had never been knocked out in his professional career prior to this one, ducked right into a head kick from Alhassan and that was all she wrote. There's not much to say from a technical standpoint for a fight which lasted all of 17 seconds. The poor performance comes at the worst possible time for Di Chirico, as he was looking to build some momentum on the heels of a knockout win (also via head kick) over Joaquin Buckley this past January. The 31-year-old Italian has lost four of five dating back to June 2019.
