October 9, 2021
Garcia defeated Charlie Ontiveros via TKO (punches) at 1:51 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Garcia withdrew from a pair of fights earlier this year, but he finally stepped into the Octagon against Garcia and was in top form. The competition level he was facing has to be taken into account, but Garcia appeared calm and composed while hammering his opponent in the striking department. He also added three successful takedowns and nearly six minutes worth of control time for good measure. The New Mexico native is now officially in the UFC win column.

Scheduled for Aug. 8 bout
FeatherweightUFC
July 3, 2020
Garcia will square off against Peter Barrett at the Aug. 8 event in Las Vegas, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Garcia's debut back in February came on short notice, but he still managed to take it the distance despite falling via unanimous decision. He should have the full training regimen this time around as he prepares to take on Barrett, who will be making his own debut at the event. Garcia sports a two-inch height and reach advantage over his opponent, so look for him to attempt to keep his opponent at a distance.
