In his debut, he scored a first-round KO over Luigi Vendramini but in both fights, he was hit by hard shots, which has many concerned.

I respect you as a fighter and wish you stay undefeated in the @ufc until we meet, but I’m really not impressed! You felt pressure in you past fights but you never felt pain may allah give us the victory,” Azaitar wrote on Instagram.

Ottman Azaitar (13-0) has not fought since September 2020, and scored a first-round TKO win over Khama Worthy. He was booked to face Matt Frevola at UFC 257 but he tried to sneak someone into Fight Island with an unknown bag and Dana White was so fed up he released him on the spot. However, after talking to his manager, Ali Abdelaziz, Azaitar was brought back but has still not been booked for a fight.

Prior to the win over Worthy, Azaitar knocked out Teemu Packlen in a vicious fashion at UFC 242 in his UFC debut. The 32-year-old is the former Brave CF lightweight champion and has 12 of his 13 wins by stoppage with 10 by KO/TKO.

Paddy Pimblett (18-3), as mentioned, is 2-0 in the UFC and is a massive star in the UK and becoming to be one around the world. Pimblett is on a four-fight win streak and is the former Cage Warriors featherweight champion. He also holds notable wins over Julian Erosa, and Decky Dalton.
