Following an appearance on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contenders Series last July – the 31-year-old has found opponents hard to come by. After a win over Kamuela Kirk – Quarantillo was matched with former Cage Warriors lightweight best, Chris Fishgold. The Liverpudlian was forced to withdraw from the pairing, with Quarantillo meeting the aforementioned, Kilburn instead. A matchup with Canadian prospect, Gavin Tucker was shelved due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic – after a UFC Fight Night Lincoln event was indefinitely postponed. Riding a six-fight win streak, Quarantillo has been unbeaten since 2016.

While Quarantillo has established a six-fight rise – opponent Carlyle will earn a sixth consecutive triumph with a victory of his own. As mentioned previously, the Treigning Lab trainee – debuted with a finish of Cruz, making good on his call to the organization, following a four-fight run on various regional circuits. The creative striker and grappler has dropped just one career loss – a split decision defeat to Serob Minasyan.
