MATCHES TO MAKE FOLLOWING UFC 212
Kategória : Egyéb
The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for the eight years in promotional history Saturday (June 3, 2017) using UFC 212: Aldo vs. Holloway. It was a good night of scraps that found nine of 12 bouts end within the distance, and with the fights currently in our rear view, let’s look at some potential matchups featuring some of the opponents in the evening…
Max Holloway vs. Frankie Edgar
Holloway dethroned Jose Aldo to become to brand new king at 145 pounds, and for his first official name defense, I think it would make most sense for him to take on Frankie Edgar, as that’s a matchup fight fans are trying to see for a while now. The other possible candidate to get a title shot at Cub Swanson, but his last loss came in the hands of Holloway in a very critical fashion. That’s not a fight that peaks the interest of fight fans, as Holloway would be expected to be a massive favorite. The Edgar fight is one in which anything can happen, so everyone would like to watch it. I think this potential featherweight title would would be an excellent fit to main event UFC 216 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Claudia Gadelha vs. Rose Namajunas
Gadelha made brief work of Poland’s Karolina Kowalkiewicz, beating her from rear-naked choke entry in the very first round of activity. She enjoys a two-fight winning streak, and for her next outing inside the Octagon, I would like to see her take on Namajunas in a title eliminator. Both fighters earned rapid victories in their latest bouts, so I want to see them create a quick turnaround to co-main event August’s UFC Fight Night in Mexico City.
Brian Kelleher vs. Bryan Caraway
Kelleher earned a first-round guillotine-choke submission over veteran Iuri Alcantara in what was a picture perfect promotional introduction for the 30-year-old, who employed his post-fight speech to ask for a Top 10 ranked opponent for a fast turnaround on the upcoming Long Island card in July. I think an opponent that makes sense is Caraway, that hasn’t seen action since a split decision win over Aljamain Sterling just over a year ago. I believe this is a pairing that is reasonable for the two fighters and are a fantastic fit anywhere on the Long Island fight card.
