Billy Quarantillo vs Spike Carlyle served as the unknown match featured on the UFC on ESPN 9 card.
The two fighters met in a catchweight bout on Saturday night (May 30, 2020) at the UFC on ESPN 9 from Las Vegas, Nevada at the Apex. Originally, this fight was supposed to be featured on the prelims but bumped at the last minute.
It was a wild fight that opened when Spike hit a running front kick then swarmed on him with strikes until Billy went to the ground.
Carlyle got tired in the second round after a wild first and majority second round where he was the more active fighter but also the guy throwing out the more punishment.
