Fantasy Analysis

Chagas' UFC career started poorly with a draw followed by a loss and a fractured fibula. However, he landed his first win in June over Jim Wallhead (read-naked choke) and is looking to add to it. In those three outings, "Tarzan" did manage to keep a 100 percent takedown defense. At age 24, he has a 15-2-1 record (1-1-1 UFC) with nine submission wins and has yet to go the distance in his career.

Easy work. Chagas, who turns 24 years old next week, bounced back nicely from a September loss to Erick Silva. He flattened the overmatched Wallhead with a hook late in Round 2 before clamping on the rear-naked choke that ended the fight. The victory was the sixth submission win over Chagas' career.

Fantasy Analysis

Chagas fell to 0-1-1 with Saturday night's loss. He began his professional career by rattling off 14 straight victories, but will need to be cleared by a doctor if the Brazilian intends to pursue his first UFC win within the next six months.
Chagas lost to Erick Silva via submission (rear-naked choke) at 3:57 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Brasilia, Brazil.

Fantasy Analysis

It was a back and forth fight, and one in which Chagas appeared to be getting the better of after Round 1. He dropped Silva with a pretty left hook early in the first frame, but he struggled for the rest of the round. Chagas showed considerable improvement in Round 2, but he was unable to survive Silva's big push in Round 3. Chagas is young enough (23) that this loss isn't going to impact him over the long term, but he needs to figure out a way to win a fight at the highest level. He is now 0-1-1 in the UFC.
