Mixed martial arts careerEdit
Ultimate Fighting ChampionshipEdit
Hubbard made his UFC debut on May 18, 2019 at UFC Fight Night 152 against Davi Ramos. He lost the fight via unanimous decision. His second UFC bout was on September 14, 2019 against Kyle Prepolec at UFC Fight Night 158. Although he won this fight via unanimous decision, compartment syndrome on his upper thigh resulted in a trip to the hospital for surgery to relieve the swelling.
Hubbard was expected to face Joe Solecki on June 20, 2020 at UFC on ESPN: Blaydes vs. Volkov. However at the last minute, Solecki was replaced by promotional newcomer Max Rohskopf. He won the fight via TKO between the second and third rounds after Rohskopf opted not to continue.
Hubbard was expected to face promotional newcomer Natan Levy on April 17, 2021 at UFC on ESPN 22 However, Levy pulled out of the bout citing an injury, and he was replaced by Dakota Bush. Hubbard won the fight via unanimous decision.
On early May, 2022, it was announced that Hubbard was released from UFC.
