The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in Singapore for the second time in promotional background last Saturday (June 17, 2017) using UFC Fight Night 111: Holm vs. Correia. It was a fun night of scraps which saw half of 12 bouts ending within the space, and with that activity now in our rear perspective, let us look at some potential matchups featuring a few of the competitors in the evening…
Bethe Correia vs. Liz Carmouche
Correia endured a third-round knockout against Holly Holm this past weekend and will be looking to return to the win column her next time out. I think a matchup which makes sense for her next outing within the Octagon would be one against fellow former UFC women’s bantamweight title challenger Liz Carmouche. It would be a rare»winner versus loser» matchup in the division, but it’s a pairing I believe makes a lot of sense. I believe this prospective women’s 135-pound contest are a good fit for the main card to October’s UFC Fight Night in Brazil.
Colby Covington vs. Rafael dos Anjos
Covington and Dos Anjos were each successful in their own principal card charms at UFC Fight Night 111, together with Covington taking a unanimous-decision win over Dong Hyun Kim and dos Anjos earning a nod nod against former Strikeforce welterweight champion Tarec Saffiedine. It was a strong welterweight debut for dos Anjos, and that I believe Covington are a fantastic opponent for his next excursion, as both of them are looking to break into the Top 15 at 170 pounds. This welterweight competition would be a nice match for the card to August’s UFC 215 in Seattle.
«Stun Gun» Dong Hyun Kim vs. Alan Jouban
This welterweight showdown has of creating fireworks that are great potential. It might also prove to be a lackluster fight if Kim employs a grappling-heavy game program and finds success with it. I’m not sure he will though, as I could watch Jouban keeping the fight standing. Jouban did show enhanced takedown defense in his final outing against Gunnar Nelson despite losing via second-round guillotine-choke entry after being dropped using a punch to the forehead. Kim is coming from a unanimous-decision reduction to Covington, and like Jouban, he will want to bounce back into the win column his next time out. I believe this fight would be a match for the UFC Fight Night in Japan of September.
