The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in Singapore for the second time in promotional history Saturday (June 17, 2017) using UFC Fight Night 111: Holm vs. Correia. It was an entertaining night of bits that saw half of 12 bouts ending within the space, and with this action today in our rear perspective, let’s look at that of the day’s competitors we may no longer see going to work within the Octagon…
ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK
Arlovski came up short in a unanimous-decision reduction to Marcin Tybura and has suffered five consecutive defeats within the Octagon, together with five of them coming against the heavy hitters of this branch. It wouldn’t surprise me to see him get another chance, but I think it is likely that we’ve seen the last of Arlovski. If they desired to keep him around, I believe that they would have given him a different competitor than Tybura, since the Pole was riding a red hot win streak with a pair of knockout finishes.
Saffiedine has suffered three consecutive defeats and is 1-4 in his past five trips within the Octagon. The only victory during that stretch has been a unanimous-decision over Jake Ellenberger. Due to that losing streak, I believe there is a fair chance that the promotion will elect 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 business.
Gomi has last four in a row — throughout first-round end — and it is likely that the 38-year-old veteran will likely be getting his walking papers out of the advertising. The fact that there’s a card coming up in Japan makes me believe they may give him yet another crack, therefore at this time, we’ve got a 50/50 shot at best of seeing”The Fireball Kid” back.
