UFC Monthly Report | March 2024

And when Pajuelo started working back to his feet, those long arms became a factor once again.

After swarming, but failing to finish on the canvas, Padilla fished his arm under the neck as Pajuelo stood up, instantly cinching in a deep, tight D’arce choke that left the debutant no choice but to tap immediately.

Still just 27 years old, Padilla is definitely a name to track in the featherweight division, as his size is going to be a problem for a lot of people. The raw materials are there for him to build into being a contender, so it’s all going to come down to the work he puts in and the matchups that come his way over the next couple years.

Honorable Mentions: Michel Pereira vs. Michal Oleksiejczuk, Marcin Tybura vs. Tai Tuivasa, Macy Chiasson vs. Pannie Kianzad, Mike Davis vs. Natan Levy, Jaqueline Amorim vs. Cory McKenna, Zalal vs. Billy Quarantillo, Julian Erosa vs. Ricardo Ramos

Knockout of the Month: Vinicius Oliveira knocks out Benardo Sopaj (UFC Vegas 87)
