    I know he was on TUF, but this was his first proper fight in the UFC.

    Paige VanZant not only won (TKO) her UFC debut fight, at UFC Fight Night Austin, she and Curran (also her UFC debut) got awarded "Fight of the Night" as well.

    Paige VanZant on the left, Kailin Curran on the right, at the weigh-in before their "Fight of the Night"

    Joe Soto making it to the 5th round of a title fight on zero notice.

    Great call. Might go down as the last time a UFC debutant fights for a UFC title.

    Half the people in this thread don't know what a debut is.

    Moicano and Backstrom both looked impressive in their debuts against Ninimaki. So did Skelly in his second UFC fight.

    Not a good year for Tom.

    Moicano's debut was one of the most impressive of the year, alongside Doo Ho Choi.

    The worst debut that comes to my mind is Cummins debut against Cormier where he just went there to get destroyed, but we can get over it easily considering it was a short notice fight, he was fighting Cormier and he is now on a 3 fight win streak, looking dominant so far.
