POST-UFC FIGHT NIGHT 111: ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in Singapore for the second time in promotional history last Saturday (June 17, 2017) with UFC Fight Night 111: Holm vs. Correia. It was a fun night of bits that saw six of 12 bouts ending within the space, and with this action now in our rear view, let’s take a look at which of the evening’s competitors we might no longer see heading to work inside the Octagon… ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK Andrei Arlovski Arlovski came up short in a unanimous-decision reduction to Marcin Tybura and has suffered five consecutive defeats inside the Octagon, with all five of them coming against the heavy hitters of this division. It would not surprise me to see him get another chance, but I think that it’s likely that we have seen the last of Arlovski. If they wanted to keep him around, I believe that they could have given him another opponent than Tybura, since the Pole was riding a red hot win series with a pair of knockout finishes. Tarec Saffiedine Saffiedine has suffered three successive defeats and is 1-4 in his past five trips within the Octagon. The only victory during that stretch was a unanimous-decision over Jake Ellenberger. Due to this losing streak, I think there is a fair possibility that the promotion will opt to part ways with all the prior Strikeforce welterweight champion. I would say it is 50/50 as to whether we see Saffiedine remain in the organization. Takanori Gomi Gomi has now last four in a row — throughout first-round finish — and it’s probable that the 38-year-old veteran will be receiving his walking papers from the advertising. The simple fact that there is a card coming up in Japan makes me believe they may give him one more crack, so at this time, we have a 50/50 shot best of seeing”The Fireball Kid” back.

POST-UFC FIGHT NIGHT 111: ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in Singapore for the second time in promotional background Saturday (June 17, 2017) using UFC Fight Night 111: Holm vs. Correia. It was an entertaining night of bits which saw half of 12 bouts end inside the space, and with that action today in our rear perspective, let’s look at which of the day’s competitions we might no longer see going to work within the Octagon… ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK Andrei Arlovski Arlovski came up short in a unanimous-decision reduction to Marcin Tybura and has suffered five straight defeats within the Octagon, together with five of them coming from the heavy hitters of this division. It would not shock me to see him get another opportunity, but I think that it is likely that we have seen the last of Arlovski. If they wanted to keep him around, I think they could have given him another opponent than Tybura, since the Pole was riding a red hot win streak with a pair of knockout finishes. Tarec Saffiedine Saffiedine has suffered three successive defeats and is 1-4 in his last five outings within the Octagon. The lone victory during this stretch has been a unanimous-decision over Jake Ellenberger. As a result of that losing streak, I believe there’s a fair chance that the advertising will elect to part ways with the former Strikeforce welterweight champion. I’d say it is 50/50 as to if we see Saffiedine stay in the business. Takanori Gomi Gomi has now last four in a row — all via first-round finish — and it’s probable that the 38-year-old veteran will likely be receiving his walking papers from the advertising. The fact that there’s a card coming up in Japan makes me believe they can give him yet another crack, so at this point, we’ve got a 50/50 shot best of seeing”The Fireball Kid” back.
