Struggles continue in Vegas
September 17, 2022
Cosce lost to Trevin Giles via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
In a fight in which neither man accomplished much, Cosce clearly accomplished less. He did nothing over the course of the first ten minutes, landing nine total strikes. He was a bit better in Round 3, connecting on a dozen shots and a takedown, good for 3:36 worth of control time, but Giles already easily banked the first two rounds, making this a foregone conclusion. Cosce earned his UFC opportunity with a 72-second knockout win on Dana White's Contender Series in August 2020 but has since gone on to lose each of his first two official fights with the company.

Cosce will take on Preston Parsons in a welterweight bout on Apr. 23, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Cosce hasn't fought since his UFC debut loss to Sasha Palatnikov in November 2020. Prior to that, "The Monster" had won all seven of his fights in the first round.

Parsons lost in his UFC debut in the first round to Daniel Rodriguez but was on a four-match win streak prior to that loss.
Stunned in UFC debut
November 21, 2020
Cosce lost to Sasha Palatnikov via TKO (punches) at 2:47 of Round 3 at UFC 255 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
What a disaster. Making his official UFC debut as a whopping -570 favorite, Cosce appeared to be in terrific position for a quick stoppage victory following a few big combinations early in the fight. Palatnikov somehow managed to survive, however, and Cosce's gas tank quickly betrayed him. He was running on fumes throughout the final two rounds and the end result was a crushing defeat that no fighter -- a newcomer or otherwise -- could afford. It's obviously only one bout, but this fight appeared to have exposed a fatal flaw in Cosce's armor. Sure, his power is legitimate, but any competitor who is unable to fight effectively for more than a couple minutes isn't any sort of legitimate contender. On the bright side, he'll still walk away with $50,000 after this matchup was awarded Fight of the Night honors.
