Eduardo Garagorri is a Uruguayan mixed martial artist who currently competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s featherweight division. He has been competing professionally since 2013 and holds an impressive record of 12 wins and only one loss.
Garagorri was born on August 10, 1988 in Montevideo, Uruguay. He began his fighting career at just 15 years old when he trained Capoeira with his brother and father. At 18, he transitioned to formal MMA training, which quickly lead to him becoming a top fighter in the local South American circuit tournaments. In 2013 he made his professional debut against Brazilian fighter Rafael Freitas, winning by unanimous decision after three rounds of intense competition. From there he went on to take part in several other tournaments throughout South America including shows in Brazil, Argentina and Colombia before making his international debut with the UFC at UFC Fight Night 123: Swanson vs Ortega where he faced off against Christobal Rivas Gonzalez and won via arm triangle choke submission after two rounds of hard-fought battle.
Since joining the UFC roster Garagorri has gone on to build an impressive record with victories over Justin Scoggins (via split decision), Humberto Bandenay (by TKO), Mizuto Hirota (by unanimous decision) and Daniel Teymur (by guillotine choke). His sole loss came via split decision against Magomed Mustafaev at UFC Fight Night 156: Shevchenko vs Carmouche 2 back in 2019 but this did not stop him from continuing to grow as a fighter as demonstrated by his most recent victory over Mexican veteran Ricardo Ramos which earned him Performance of the Night honors for delivering an electrifying performance that saw him win by TKO due to strikes only 40 seconds into the first round.
Garagorri is now considered one of Uruguay’s most accomplished fighters whose skill set extends far beyond MMA; having earned black belts both Judo and Ju Jitsu, as well as earning extensive experience within traditional Muay Thai kickboxing circles too – demonstrating just how versatile Garagorri truly is when it comes to combat sports! A testament perhaps also to his dedication towards self improvement both inside & outside of cage; spending extra time training hard each day even though much like many athletes around world Covid-19 pandemic has severely limited training opportunities available for sportspeople such as himself.
Regardless Eduardo “El Fenomeno” Garagorri remains passionate about what he does best & will no doubt continue aiming ever higher until achieving top spot within featherweight rankings!
