Upset win in UFC debut
July 22, 2023
Parkin defeated Jamal Pogues via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in London.
In a battle of two Dana White Contender Series alums, Parkin cruised to victory as a +130 underdog. It was widely believed Parkin would be forced to defend repeated takedown attempts, but Pogues tried just one (unsuccessfully). That allowed Parkin to open up on the feet, confidently mixing things up between the head, body and legs. It will be interesting to see how Parkin performs against a bit better opponent in a fight that doesn't take place in his home country, but this was about as strong of a start as he could have asked for.
Homecoming debut scheduled
April 27, 2023
Parkin will fight Jamal Pogues in a heavyweight bout at UFC London on July 22, according to Marcel Dorff of Eurosport.nl.
Currently, Parkin is expected to be one of several English fighters fighting in their home country at UFC London. This could be extra special for him, as he is expected to log his debut there. Parkin will enter the fight 6-0, with each of his wins recorded via finish. In contrast, Pogues is 10-3 with both half his wins and zero losses logged via decision.
First-round finish earns contract
August 23, 2022
Parkin defeated Eduardo Neves via submission (rear-naked choke) at 1:57 of Round 1 at Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series. After the show, he was one of five fighters to be awarded an official UFC contract.
After three consecutive betting underdogs had cashed tickets going into the evening's main event, Parkin made it a fourth as a (+160) dog. Neves certainly fought a strange style, as he threw big, looping shots and didn't hesitate to showboat. Those antics tired him out quickly, however, and Parkin was able to toss him to the canvas several times before finding his back and securing the choke. The main concern with Parkin's professional resume to date is that he had yet to face a fighter with a winning record in a brief, five-fight pro career leading up to Tuesday. Needless to say, he'll face a much higher caliber of competition upon his entrance to the UFC.
