Michailidis defeated K.B. Bhullar via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Considering Bhullar's struggles, it's disappointing Michailidis was able to get the finish. Still, it was a nice effort on the heels of his TKO loss to Modestas Bukauskas in his UFC debut last July. Michailidis has proven to be effective in short bursts. He has legitimate power in addition to the ability to push the pace on his opposition if the opportunity presents itself. It was easy for him in this fight since Bhullar essentially refused to return fire. There are concerns regarding Michailidis' cardio and secondary skills, but he does a decent job of fighting to his strengths.

ANALYSIS
Michailidis lost his UFC debut to Modestas Bukauskas via TKO (referee stoppage) after he accepted the fight on 10 days' notice. The 32-year-old withdrew from a scheduled fight back in November for undisclosed reasons but will look to avenge himself upon his return to the Octagon in May.

Looks to bounce back in November

Michailidis will take on Antonio Arroyo in a middleweight matchup at the UFC event schedule for Nov. 14, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Michailidis had a strange debut fight with the company if nothing else, as the bout was waved off after the first round when Michailidis attempted to lean up against a cage that wasn't there. He'll have much better circumstances surrounding his follow-up affair, however, as he'll get a full fight camp, plus be down at his natural weight class (185 pounds). He'll take on a fighter in Arroryo that dropped his UFC debut to Andre Muniz last November, then couldn't make it to the scales for a follow-up effort in February. Michailidis will have a three-inch reach advantage, but Arroryo will stand three inches taller.
Strange ending to UFC debut

July 15, 2020
Michailidis lost to Modestas Bukauskas via TKO (referee stoppage) at 5:00 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Wednesday in Abu Dhabi.
ANALYSIS
What a strange, strange ending. Michailidis pushed forward for a takedown in the closing seconds of Round 1 and was greeted by repeated elbows to the side of his head from Bukauskas. The bell rang and Michailidis was clearly in distress. He appeared to attempt to sit back in order to regain his composure, not realizing he was up against the opening to the cage. The second the door swung open and Michaildiis leaned back and fell out of the cage, referee Dan Movahedi waived off the bout. It's a bit of bad luck for Michailidis in his UFC debut, but as Michael Bisping (correctly) said on the ESPN broadcast, Michailidis' poor body language didn't help matters.
