Mullarkey lost to Nasrat Haqparast via TKO (punches) at 1:44 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Mullarkey's striking defense has always been well below-average, but to his credit, it typically takes plenty of blows to get him out of there. That wasn't the case here. One sweeping left hook found the mark, and Jamie was never able to recover. He appeared to be out on his feet before referee Keith Peterson finally realized and stepped in. Every Mullarkey fight is a hope he can land the one or two blows that drop him opponent before he gets dropped himself. That's a tough way to make a living, as evidenced by the fact he has alternated wins and losses in his past four bouts. There simply isn't much here.

Scheduled against Haqparast
LightweightUFC
October 16, 2023
Mullarkey will compete against Nasrat Haqparast in a lightweight fight at UFC Shanghai on Dec. 9, according to Marcel Dorff of Eurosport.nl.
ANALYSIS
Mullarkey will try to end his up-and-down 2023 on a high note. He began the year with a hometown win over Francisco Prado. But after a 180-day medical suspension, he was given a new opponent twice for UFC Vegas 74 and ultimately lost at the event to Muhammadjon Naimov. Combine that with Mullarkey's latest fight, a win he scraped over John Makdessi, there is still much to be desired from the Australian.
Barely gets past John Makdessi
LightweightUFC
September 9, 2023
Mullarkey defeated John Makdessi via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC 293 on Saturday in Sydney, Australia.
ANALYSIS
Fresh off a knockout loss to Muhammadjon Naimov this past June as a -500 favorite, Mullarkey got the job done here at -300, but he was fortunate two judges saw the fight for him, let alone all three. Mullarkey used his massive length advantage to damage Makdessi in the opening frame by landing plenty of low kicks, but his striking defense got progressively worse as the fight progressed. Makdessi began landing with more regularity, and Jamie struggled to consistently close the distance between the two. Nine fights into his UFC run, Mullarkey is sporting a 5-4 record. He's been quite good at times, and extremely underwhelming at others. Expect him to hover around the .500 mark moving forward.

Mullarkey will fight John Makdessi at UFC 293 on September 9, Marcel Dorff of Eurosport.nl reports.
ANALYSIS
Mullarkey is coming off a shock defeat to Muhammadjon Naimov back on June 3 via TKO, so he's not waiting long to get some redemption. 4-2 in his last six fights, Mullarkey should enter as the favorite as he seeks to get his contender status back on track.
Falls as biggest favorite on card
LightweightUFC
June 3, 2023
Mullarkey lost to Muhammadjon Naimov via TKO (punches) at 2:59 of Round 2 at UFC on ESPN 46 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
What a disaster. Entering as the biggest favorite on the card at upwards of -500 against a late-notice opponent, Mullarkey was doing just fine until one sweeping right hand from Naimov sent him crumbling to the mat. A few additional follow-up shots, and Mullarkey was done. The Aussie is still sporting a 4-2 mark in his last six fights, not bad at all considering he began his UFC run with back-to-back defeats, but any fighter that considers themselves a contender simply can't be losing bouts such as this one. Mullarkey has a long road ahead of him to make up for this performance.
Finds new opponent for UFC Vegas 74
LightweightUFC
May 29, 2023
Mullarkey will face off against Muhammadjon Naimov at UFC Vegas 74 on June 3, Marcel Dorff of Eurosport.nl reports.
ANALYSIS
Mullarkey will have the advantage in terms of experience, as Naimov has yet to take part in a UFC bout. However, Naimov does own a respectable 8-2 professional record and hasn't dropped a fight since February of 2021. Mullarkey was slated to face Guram Kutateladze before he was forced to pull out of the bout at the last minute.
