Submitted in UFC debut

Barnett lost to Ben Rothwell via submission (guillotine choke) at 2:07 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
The official record reads that Barnett fell via "submission" in his UFC debut, but the truth of the matter is that he really lost due to "exhaustion." While Barnett is an extremely interesting character, he's not exactly a physical specimen and taking a late-notice debut against a much bigger opponent was a recipe for disaster. Barnett has legitimate power and is tough as heck, but it's going to be extremely difficult for him to compete in the UFC due to his one-dimensional offense and 5-foot-9 frame.
