MATCHES TO MAKE AFTER UFC 214

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in Anaheim, CA for the first time in promotional history last Saturday (July 29, 2017) with UFC 214: Cormier vs. Jones II. It was a fun night of activity that saw half the bouts end inside the distance, and with all the scraps now in our rear perspective, let’s look at some possible matchups featuring some of the opponents in the evening… Daniel Cormier vs. Jimi Manuwa Cormer dropped his UFC light heavyweight title to former name holder Jon”Bones” Jones in a rematch through third-round TKO. That marked the defeat of his MMA career, with both coming from Jones. For his return fight following the loss, I want to see him shoot on Manuwa, that came up short at UFC 214, dropping to Volkan Oezdemir via knockout inside the opening moment of the very first round of action. The Brit was on the brink of a title shot but will have to return for one more look at the drawing board. In case Cormier and Manuwa won, this fight would have probably gotten produced, but that they came up short, I believe it makes sense to put it all together. Early 2018 would be a fantastic time to pit both from each other in what would be a traditional striker versus grappler matchup. Tonya Evinger vs. Liz Carmouche Evinger made her long-awaited UFC introduction, even though a weight class above from the UFC’s new women’s featherweight division, where she competed for the branch’s empty title against Cris”Cyborg” Justino. She came up short, losing the bout via third-round TKO, though she displayed huge heart and won over many new fans. She’ll certainly be dropping down into the UFC’s 135-pound branch for her next bout, in which I would like to watch her shoot on Carmouche, who last saw action at UFC 205 last November in Madison Square Garden in New York City, where she defeated Katlyn Chookagian via split decision. I think a possible Evinger versus Carmouche matchup would make for an excellent fit to the preliminary card to the UFC’s coming return visit to the Big Apple to get UFC 217. Jason Knight vs. Renato Moicano Knight and Moicano both came up short this past Saturday night, with Knight suffering a first-round TKO loss to Ricardo Lamas and Moicano being filed with a guillotine choke by Brian Ortega from the next round of their competition. Following the defeats, I think that it could make sense to pit these two enjoyable, well-rounded featherweights against each other within the Octagon. This possible 145-pound contest would be an ideal match on the card to November’s UFC Fight Night in Virginia.

MATCHES TO MAKE AFTER UFC 214

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in Anaheim, CA for the seventh time in promotional history last Saturday (July 29, 2017) with UFC 214: Cormier vs. Jones II. It was an entertaining night of activity that saw half the bouts end inside the space, and with the scraps now in our rear view, let us look at some potential matchups featuring a few of the competitors from the day… Daniel Cormier vs. Jimi Manuwa Cormer dropped his UFC light heavyweight title to former name holder Jon”Bones” Jones in a rematch through third-round TKO. That marked the defeat of his MMA career, with both from Jones. For his return fight after the reduction, I want to see him take on Manuwa, that came up short at UFC 214, losing to Volkan Oezdemir via knockout inside of the opening moment of their very first round of activity. The Brit was on the brink of a title shot but will now have to go back for another look at the board. In case Cormier and Manuwa won, this struggle would have likely gotten produced, but now that they came up short, I think it makes sense to put it all together. 2018 would be a fantastic time to pit both from each other in what is a striker versus grappler matchup. Tonya Evinger vs. Liz Carmouche Evinger made her long-awaited UFC introduction, although a weight class above in the UFC’s new women’s featherweight division, where she competed for the division’s vacant title against Cris”Cyborg” Justino. She came up short, losing the bout through third-round TKO, though she displayed tremendous heart and won over many new fans. She will certainly be dropping down into the UFC’s 135-pound division for her next bout, where I’d like to watch her take on Carmouche, that last saw action at UFC 205 last November at Madison Square Garden in New York City, where she defeated Katlyn Chookagian via split decision. I think a possible Evinger versus Carmouche matchup will make for an excellent fit to the preliminary card for the UFC’s upcoming return visit to the Big Apple for UFC 217. Jason Knight vs. Renato Moicano Knight and Moicano both came up short this past Saturday night, with Knight suffering a first-round TKO loss to Ricardo Lamas and Moicano being filed with a guillotine choke by Brian Ortega in the third round of the contest. Following the defeats, I think that it could make sense to pit both of these enjoyable featherweights against each other within the Octagon. This potential competition would be a perfect match on the main card to November’s UFC Fight Night in Virginia.
