Gets unanimous decision win in Hamburg
July 22, 2018
Tybura defeated Stefan Struve via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night 134 on Sunday in Hamburg, Germany.
Tybura had a bit of trouble getting inside on the 7'0 frame of Struve but was able to get the dutch kickboxer to the mat with regularity and land shots. We are still waiting to see something special from Tybura after he stormed onto our collective radar with a head kick finish of Viktor Pesta but he will likely take the win after dropping back-to-back bouts to Derrick Lewis and Fabricio Verdum. Tybura improves to 17-4 in professional MMA as a result of the victory.

Tybura was defeated by Derrick Lewis via KO (punches) at 2:48 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night on Sunday in Austin.
Tybura had the grappling advantage throughout the early stages of this fight. He was taken down early by Lewis, but was able to reverse and get to mount. Later in the round he was knocked down, but recovered and finished the round in mount after reversing Lewis once again. In the second round, "Tyber" took down the Texan early in the round. He transitioned between mount and his opponents back while Lewis tried to shake him off. In the third, Tybura once again tried to bring the fight to the mat. Lewis had one last burst of energy and threw Tybura to the ground. Tybura got back up, but was then hit with a brutal combination by Lewis and knocked down. Lewis followed up with punches and the referee stepped in. Tybura was clearly ahead on the judges scorecards when he was finished.
To face Derrick Lewis
November 30, 2017
Tybura will take on Derrick Lewis at UFC Austin on February 18, Marc Raimondi of reports.
Tybura will get back on the horse following his defeat at the hands of Fabricio Werdum via unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night 121 in Australia a couple weeks ago. On the flip side, Lewis was supposed to take on Werdum in October, but was unable to fight due to a back injury. Lewis comes in with an 18-5 professional record while Tybura enters at 16-3. Prior to his loss to Werdum, Tybura had won three straight bouts dating back to August of 2016.
Loses lopsided unanimous decision in Australia
November 18, 2017
Tybura was defeated by Fabricio Werdum via unanimous decision (45-50, 45-50, 46-49) at UFC Fight Night 121 on Saturday in Australia.
Tybura was out of his league in this fight. He was far too slow to keep up with Werdum's movement, and only landed a few significant shots throughout the fight. "Tybur" was able to land a few head kicks throughout the fight, but never capitalized on them when Werdum may have been hurt. He seemed hesitant to press the action, which was surprising as Werdum has a very low takedown percentage. There were two bright spots in the fight for Tybura. First, he was taken down in the fourth round by "Vai Cavalo," but he was able to escape Werdum's side control and got back to his feet when the Brazilian attempted an armbar. Second, Tybura landed a head kick early in the fifth round which seemed to rock Werdum. As mentioned above, Tybura was hesitant and did not jump on the opportunity to try to finish Werdum. That led to Tybura being picked apart for the rest of the round en route to the unanimous decision loss.
