Hubbard defeated Kyle Prepolec via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC on ESPN+ 16 on Saturday in Vancouver.
ANALYSIS
Hubbard ate a hard left hand and a right high kick in the opening frame, which he dropped after falling behind in the significant striking battle 17 to 28. The next two frames were a very different story for the (-140) betting favorite, however, as he started to employ his wrestling to some success. Hubbard was credited with two takedowns and two passes in the second round, and the third round was more of the same. Hubbard spent the final round in top position, where he landed 68 total strikes (though only 10 were credited as significant). In the end, he got the nod from the judges to move to 1-1 in the UFC and 11-3 professional.

Eight of Hubbard's wins have come via KO/TKO or decision, while two of his losses have come by decision and the other via submission. Hubbard's opponent is the 29-year-old Prepolec, who also most recently lost during his UFC debut in a fight against Nordine Taleb. Seven of Prepolec's 12 victories have come via KO/TKO, while four of his six losses are by decision -- the other two being submissions.
Hangs tough in UFC debut

Hubbard lost to Davi Ramos via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Rochester, New York.
ANALYSIS
This was a very tough draw for Hubbard in his UFC debut, and while there are no moral victories in this or any sport, it was nonetheless impressive for him to see the final bell as a (+350) underdog. While he was out-landed in all three rounds, Hubbard displayed a granite chin and kept pressing forward, accumulating 44 significant strikes of his own. A product of Denver's Elevation Fight Team, Hubbard had bounced around the regional circuit prior to Saturday. He'll probably get another chance with the company, and may fare better if given a more reasonable opponent.
