Re-scheduled against Rosas
BantamweightUFC
April 11, 2024
Turcios is scheduled to compete against Raul Rosas at the UFC Apex's June 8 event, per Damon Martin of MMAFighting.com.
ANALYSIS
Ideally for Turcios, the third time is the charm for an eventual fight against Rosas. The two were scheduled to compete at what was promoted as UFC Mexico on Feb. 24. The fight got postponed and moved to UFC Vegas 87 on March 2, but it could not work and resulted in an overall cancellation. To make everything right, they have re-scheduled again but for the summer.

Won't fight Rosas Saturday
BantamweightUFC
February 28, 2024
Turcios is no longer expected to fight Raul Rosas at UFC Vegas 87 on Saturday, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The two were supposed to fight a week earlier in Mexico City, but Rosas came down with an illness at the last possible minute, forcing the cancellation of the bout just before the two were scheduled to make the walk to the cage. The UFC announced an immediate re-booking for this week's card at catchweight, but it sounds like the promotion jumped the gun a bit, making the announcement before both fighters had pen to paper. It's also unclear what broke things up this time around. It seems likely this fight still happens down the road, but it won't be this weekend.

Never relents in statement win
BantamweightUFC
November 19, 2022
Turcios defeated Kevin Natividad via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) at UFC Vegas 65 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
At various points, it looked as though Natividad would take over this fight with his striking, but Turcios never took a backward step, always finding the clinch and outpacing his opponent in grappling exchanges before a back-take in Round 3 secured the fight. Time and again Turcios has shown he will throw himself into the fire and take damage to get his game working. This "kill-or-be-killed" style generally catches up with fighters at some point, but the 29-year-old will be fun to watch regardless of the outcome. He improves to 13-3-0 in professional MMA as a result of the victory.
