MATCHES TO MAKE AFTER UFC 213

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in Las Vegas, NV last Saturday night (July 8, 2017) with UFC 213: Romero vs. Whittaker. It was a thrilling night of bits that watched five of 11 bouts end inside the space. With the activity now in our rear perspective, let’s look at some potential matchups featuring some of the opponents from the day… Alistair Overeem vs. Alexei Olinyk Both these heavyweights were successful in their charms at UFC 213, with Overeem edging Fabricio Werdum through majority decision on the judges’ scorecards in a rubber match, and Oliynyk beating Travis Browne by second-round rear-naked choke submission in striking, come-from-behind fashion. Overeem was hoping to make a second name shot with this victory, but UFC president Dana White verified he will not be receiving it. I believe a possible matchup against fellow veteran Oliynyk makes sense and would be a great match for the main card to November’s UFC 217 at nyc. Fabricio Werdum vs. Derrick Lewis Werdum came up short on the judges’ scorecards against Overeem and will be looking to bounce back to the win column his second time out. I think an opponent which makes sense for his next excursion within the Octagon is Lewis, who said he was retiring after having a fourth-round TKO loss to Mark Hunt but has since changed his tune. I think this possible heavyweight showdown are the perfect principal event for October’s UFC Fight Night in Brazil, in which Werdum would like to have the home advantage. Rob Font vs. Matthew Lopez Font defeated Douglas Silva de Andrade via second-round guillotine-choke entry to earn his second successive victory inside the Octagon. For his next bout, I want to see him take on the guy rated right below him Matthew Lopez, who is coming from a first-round TKO of Johnny Eduardo and also enjoys a two-fight winning streak. I believe this possible bantamweight contest ought to be the featured bout on the prelims for October’s UFC 216 at vegas.
