·1 min read

Jack Della Maddalena made a statement in his UFC debut.

The Dana White Contender Series alumni picked up a TKO finish in his promotional debut, stopping Pete Rodriguez at the 2:59 mark of Round 1. The welterweight contest went down in the preliminary card of Saturday’s UFC 270 event in Anaheim, Calif.

Maddalena (11-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) took little time to get going. Right off the bell, the 25-year-old pressured Rodriguez (4-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) and quickly battered him, blooding up his nose. In a counter straight left, Maddalena dropped Rodriguez and quickly followed up with ground-and-pound to get the win.

With the win, Maddalena is now on an impressive 11-fight winning streak. He’s unbeaten since losing his first two fights as a professional in 2016.
