Strong run continues
August 5, 2023
Phillips defeated Raoni Barcelos via unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC on ESPN 50 on Saturday in Nashville.
It was a complete, highly encouraging performance from Phillips. He was the faster, better boxer, as expected, but his grappling game was very encouraging. He defended 8-of-11 Barcelos takedown attempts, and in the three he gave up, he limited the Brazilian's ability to remain in a dominant position and inflict damage. Still just 28 years of age, the MMA Lab product has very quietly racked up a 5-1 record in his first half-dozen UFC bouts. It remains to be seen how Kyler will fare against better opposition, but the early returns have been excellent.
