Swallows tough pill in loss
LightweightUFC
October 17, 2020
Mullarkey lost to Fares Ziam via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
ANALYSIS
This one will likely sting for a while, as Mullarkey looked primed to notch his first UFC win after tallying takedowns and achieving control for the majority of rounds two and three. A reversal from Ziam as Mullarkey attempted to go to mount created a scramble in which Mullarkey nearly had his back taken, which must have been enough for the judges to award him the fight. It seems strange that Mullarkey is 0-2 in the Octagon, as his losses include a likely future title contender in Brad Riddell, and the questionable decision here. While it may not look great now, it does seem as though Mullarkey has the talent to string wins together in the organization going forward. He falls to 12-4 in his professional MMA career as a result of the loss.

Mullarkey will take on Jalin Turner (knee) in a lightweight bout at UFC Auckland on Feb. 23, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Mullarkey was defeated by Brad Riddell via unanimous decision at UFC 243 in October in his UFC debut. However, Mullarkey showed elite toughness that earned him another opportunity with the promotion despite his inability to do much damage on his feet. Turner suffered a right knee injury in his loss to Matt Frevola via unanimous decision at UFC 236 in April, but he should be ready to go after his 180-day suspension. Turner was effective on his feet during the matchup but struggled against takedown attempts. Turner carries a significant height advantage over Mullarkey.
Sees final bell in first UFC bout

Mullarkey lost to Brad Riddell via unanimous decision (27-29, 26-30, 26-30) at UFC 243 on Saturday in Melbourne, Australia.
ANALYSIS
Mullarkey got pounded from pillar to post in what was a brutal war, but he'll at least emerge from the battle with a $50,000 Fight of the Night bonus. The debuting Aussie actually had Riddell in trouble on multiple occasions throughout the course of the 15-minute bout, but he was unable to do consistent damage to his opposition on the feet. Mullarkey did display next-level toughness and that alone should earn him a second opportunity with the company. There are very, very few people walking planet Earth today who can survive the beating Mullarkey took on Saturday and live to see the final bell. Mullarkey fought future title challenger Alexander Volkanovski on the Australian regional circuit back in March 2016 and was knocked out in just over three minutes. Saturday's loss snapped a four-fight win streak for the 25-year-old.
To debut at UFC 243

October 1, 2019
Mullarkey will take on Brad Riddell in a lightweight matchup at UFC 243 on Saturday in Melbourne, Australia.
ANALYSIS
Mullarkey has spent most of his career on the Australian regional circuits, where he started out with eight consecutive victories (seven stoppages). He then went on a two-fight losing streak, but that got started with a first-round KO loss to Alexander Volkanovski, and there's no shame in losing to a fighter set to compete for Max Holloway's belt in December. The loss afterwards was possibly a bit fluky, as he had been dominating Luke Catubig before getting stopped in the second round. Mullwarkey's aggressive style and questionable defense seemingly could lead to high volatility in terms of potential fantasy scoring outcomes. He sits as a (+130) betting underdog as of Tuesday afternoon.
