Gets right back in win column
HeavyweightUFC
July 17, 2021
Nascimento defeated Alan Baudot via TKO (punches) at 1:29 of Round 2 at UFC on ESPN 26 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Nascimento may have won, but he certainly didn't look the part of a -390 favorite and had to sweat out some hairy moments in Round 1. The tide flipped in Round 2, as the bombs Nascimento failed to land in the opening frame began to hit home. The Brazilian has now gone 2-1 since earning his UFC opportunity with a submission win on Dana White's Contender Series back in July 2019. Both of those previously mentioned wins have come via stoppage, but there's nothing in Nascimento's background to suggest he's anything more than high-end roster depth at this point.
Rescheduled for July

ANALYSIS
