Routed after weight miss
LightweightUFC
November 18, 2023
Alexander lost to Jeka Saragih via KO (punches) at 1:31 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
What a disaster. Alexander entered as a -550 favorite despite missing weight by a couple pounds Friday morning. He got back to his feet following a ground exchange between the two men and was obliterated by a Saragih right hand that sent him crashing to the mat, forcing referee Herb Dean to quickly step in. A weight miss followed by an immediate loss as a massive favorite is typically a set of circumstances UFC brass has little patience for. Now 1-2 in his first three bouts with the company, Alexander's roster spot isn't secure.

Strong showing for first UFC win

Alexander defeated Steven Peterson via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC on ESPN 43 on Saturday in San Antonio.
ANALYSIS
Entering as a +155 underdog, Alexander cruised from bell to bell. He finished with a whopping 86-27 edge in total strikes landed, in addition to being responsible for the biggest moment of the fight, a knockdown in Round 3. It was so bad for Peterson that he left his gloves in the center of the Octagon and officially retired following the bout. As for Alexander, it was an excellent showing on the heels of a late-notice, first-round submission defeat to Joanderson Brito last October. Still just 27 years of age, Alexander is a fighter worth monitoring moving forward.
