Not competitive in UFC debut
FlyweightUFC
May 14, 2022
Hadley lost to Allan Nascimento via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC on ESPN 36 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Entering as a -200 favorite for his UFC debut, Hadley was controlled by Nascimento on the mat for nearly the duration of the bout. Although he officially only allowed two takedowns on four attempts, Hadley's complete inability to work his way back to his feet resulted in him not being able to land any consistent offense of his own. Hadley is just 25 years of age and has never fought anyone of note, so there were certain to be some growing pains along this way, but this was a poor, poor start to his time with the company. Hadley will look for a rebound performance his next time out.

Whatever was preventing Hadley from competing in March has apparently been resolved, so the 25-year-old from England will put his unbeaten record (8-0-0) on the line against Nascimento (18-6-0).
