— MMAFighting.com (@MMAFighting) November 7, 2021
Quarantillo was last seen at UFC 268 last November 21, 2021, at the Madison Square Garden where he engaged Shane Burgos in a back-and-forth war. Unfortunately, Quarantillo ended up on the losing end of the unanimous decision. The loss was his second in his last three fights after winning his first three UFC assignments.
The 33-year-old from Ransomville, New York is a former Strike Off FC featherweight and King of the Cage lightweight champion. He competed in the TUF 22 tournament where he lost to Saul Rogers in the quarterfinals. Quarantillo scored a TKO win over Kamuela Kirk at the Contender Series 21 to earn his UFC contract. Overall, he has a record of 16-4 with seven knockouts and five submission victories.
This will mark the fifth time in his UFC career that Quarantillo has opened with the minus money sign written next to his name. He won three out of the first four such instances, with his only loss coming at the hands of Gavin Tucker at UFC 256 where Quarantillo opened at -140 odds.

Meanwhile, Algeo successfully bounced back from a loss to Ricardo Ramos with a unanimous decision win over Joanderson Brito at UFC Vegas 46 last January 15th. Brito marched forward throughout the fight but Algeo used his reach and counterstriking skills to outpoint the Brazilian and pick up the victory Algeo has alternated losses and wins in four assignments since joining the UFC in 2020.
The 33-year-old from Boothwyn, Pennsylvania began his career at CFFC and WSOF before finding success at Ring of Combat where he became featherweight champion and made three successful title defenses. Despite a loss to Brendan Loughnane at the Contender Series, he ended up getting signed by the UFC. Algeo is 15-6 with three knockouts and six submission wins.
Algeo has seen the plus money sign written next to his name in three out of his first four UFC bouts. He was the +240 underdog when he lost his UFC debut against Ricardo Lamas and was also the +145 bottom dog in his last fight against Brito. Algeo also defeated Spike Carlyle as the +175 betting underdog.
