It wasn’t an easy past week for Quinlan entering the fight. His originally scheduled opponent, Darian Weeks pulled out of the bout after someone in his fight camp tested positive for COVID-19.
After the fight, White awarded Quinlan a UFC contract for his efforts. He lauded Quinlan’s victory as one of the most impressive he’s seen in the show’s history.
It appears that the UFC has a new potential welterweight star in Quinlan, with his ferocious style in the octagon. He has the opportunity to become the latest Hawaiian star in the UFC; alongside former champions BJ Penn and Max Holloway.
