Fantasy Analysis

Forced to fill out the roster because of the number of events that they hold, the end result is fighters like Arnett getting a shot with the UFC even if they don't truly deserve one. Outside of a takedown that he landed in Round 2, Arnett did nothing of note throughout the course of the fight. The UFC usually gives a debuting fighter a second opportunity if they come up short the first time around, but Arnett may find himself an exception.
