Adam Fugitt


Pulls upset for first UFC win
February 5, 2023
Fugitt defeated Yusaku Kinoshita via TKO (elbows) at 4:36 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Fugitt made his UFC debut last July, accepting a fight against top prospect Michael Morales on short notice. He lasted until the early part of Round 3 before being knocked out. Fugitt was much more effective in this fight with a full training camp under his belt, and did so as a +285 favorite. He exploited a massive hole in Kinoshita's game, landing four takedowns in the brief bout. The finish came when Fugitt ended up in mount and fired off countless elbows which forced referee Keith Peterson to step in. Fugitt just turned 34 years of age, so an extended prolonged winning streak seems unlikely, but this effort was a pleasant surprise.

Admirable effort on short notice
July 30, 2022
Fugitt lost to Michael Morales via TKO (punches) at 1:09 of Round 3 at UFC 277 on Saturday in Dallas.
Fugitt accepted this fight a little over a week ago and entered as a +450 underdog, the largest on the entire card. Taking both of those things into consideration, he looked awfully good. There's a case to be made he won the opening round on the strength of a takedown and some ground control, but Fugitt predictably lost steam as the fight progressed. He was competitive the entire way before a quick one-two combination by Morales early in Round 3 closed the show. Fugitt by no means embarrassed himself against one of the top prospects in the sport today, all on short notice. We'll see him again inside the Octagon.
