Lasts 32 seconds in Vegas
WelterweightUFC
February 3, 2024
Rodriguez lost to Themba Gorimbo via TKO (punches) at 0:32 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Fighting for the first time since October 2022, Rodriguez lasted 32 seconds after stepping in for Kiefer Crosbie (undisclosed) on short notice. Pete got cracked with a right hand from Gorimbo and was essentially finished on the spot. Seven fights into his professional career at age 27, Rodriguez is sporting a 1-2 record in his first three UFC bouts. He'll probably get another shot with the company, but it's not a guarantee after this performance.
