Diego Lopes remains one of the best kept secrets in MMA. At only 26 years old, he has a professional record of 19-4 and has wins over former UFC fighters as well as the current LUX bantamweight champion.

With all these accolades, as well as notably acting as Irene Aldana and Alexa Grasso’s BJJ coach, what is keeping Lopes out of the UFC?

Short answer, his DWCS loss to Joanderson Brito earlier this season.

Should Lopes leave Houston with the Fury FC featherweight belt on October 17, it’d be hard to imagine that his DWCS loss could keep him out of the UFC any longer. While nothing is guaranteed, going from LUX featherweight champion to DWCS loss to Fury FC featherweight champion in nine months is hard to deny.
