Suffers first UFC loss Saturday in Calgary

July 28, 2018
Antigulov lost to Ion Cutelaba via TKO (strikes) at 4:25 of Round 1 at UFC on FOX 30 on Saturday in Calgary.
Antigulov began like a house of fire and scored a couple of quick takedowns, but his gas tank quickly hit empty and Cutelaba took advantage. Overall, Antigulov was credited with three successful takedowns on eight attempts. Considering his first two UFC fights/wins lasted a combined 3:28, we had no idea about the Russian's ability to pace himself. We got our answer on Saturday and it wasn't good. The American Top Team mat specialist will be back in the near future, hopefully after devising a new strategy to conserve his energy.

Antigulov will face Ion Cutelaba in a light heavyweight matchup at UFC Calgary on July 28, the Calgary Sun reports.
Antigulov and Cutelaba were originally scheduled to throw down at UFC 217 last November, but Cutelaba was pulled from the card due to a USADA violation and ensuing suspension. Rather than book another matchup, Antigulov has been on the shelf for the entirety of Cutelaba's six-month suspension, which will be up May 3. Antigulov has seen plenty of success in his first two fights under the UFC banner, as each has ended via a first-round submission. His striking has been a bit more of a question mark, as Antigulov hasn't really needed to utilize it in either matchup.
