The skid continues for former top UFC lightweight James Vick.
On Saturday, Vick (13-6) competed in an XMMA main event in West Palm Beach, Fla. Taking on former Bellator and PFL fighter Andre Fialho, Vick was battered and bloodied in Round 2 en route to a TKO loss.
The opening round was closely contested with both men finding success on the feet. In Round 2, however, Fialho (10-4) began to take over. The beginning of the end struck when Fialho knocked Vick’s mouthpiece out shortly after the round began.
From there, Fialho poured on an onslaught of attack, dropping Vick, who tried to hang tough. Vick’s best efforts to survive were for not. He absorbed a tremendous amount of damage before the referee finally stepped in and waved off the fight – a standing TKO for Fialho.
Following the stoppage, Vick crumpled to the canvas – a bloody mess. His face was bruised and swollen, as the announcers speculated about a jaw injury.
The fight was Vick’s first since departing the UFC in 2020, but it’s his fifth straight loss. Four of the losses in the skid were suffered via knockout or TKO.
