Curtis Blaydes UFC

Curtis Blaydes made his UFC debut against Francis Ngannou at UFC Fight Night 86. Ngannou had no answer to Ngannou's striking prowess and lost the fight at the end of the second round via Doctor's Stoppage TKO. He bounced back from the loss by defeating Cody East in the second round via TKO to earn his first Performance of the Night bonus.

Blaydes defeated Adam Milstead via second-round TKO via knee strike. However, the decision got overturned to a No Contest because Curtis tested positive for marijuana.

Curtis didn't let the No-Contest end his momentum as he won his next 4-fights in the promotion over the likes of Mark Hunt and Alistair Overeem before getting a rematch against Francis Ngannou at UFC Fight Night: Blaydes vs. Ngannou 2.

The rematch was less competitive than the first one because Ngannou knocked out Blaydes in 45-seconds. He bounced back from the dominating loss by going on a 3-fight win streak before challenging Derrick Lewis at UFC Fight Night: Blaydes vs. Lewis. Blaydes's chin could not withstand Derrick's heavy punches as he got knocked out cold in the second round.

He went back on the winning track by securing a convincing unanimous decision victory over Jairzinho Rozenstruik.
