The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in Las Vegas, NV last Saturday night (July 8, 2017) using UFC 213: Romero vs. Whittaker. It had been an exciting night of scraps that saw five of 11 bouts end within the distance. With the action now in our rear perspective, let’s look at some possible matchups featuring some of the opponents in the day…
Alistair Overeem vs. Alexei Olinyk
Both these heavyweights were successful in their bouts at UFC 213, with Overeem edging Fabricio Werdum through majority decision on the judges’ scorecards in a rubber match, and Oliynyk defeating Travis Browne by second-round rear-naked choke entry in impressive, come-from-behind style. Overeem was hoping to make a second title shot with this success, but UFC president Dana White verified he will not be receiving it. I think a potential matchup against fellow veteran Oliynyk makes sense and are a good match for the primary card to November’s UFC 217 in nyc.
Fabricio Werdum vs. Derrick Lewis
Werdum came up short on the judges’ scorecards from Overeem and will be looking to bounce back into the win column his next time out. I believe an opponent which makes sense for his next excursion inside 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 believe this possible heavyweight showdown would be the perfect main event for October’s UFC Fight Night in Brazil, where Werdum would like to have the home advantage.
Rob Font vs. Matthew Lopez
Font defeated Douglas Silva de Andrade via second-round guillotine-choke submission to make his second consecutive victory inside the Octagon. Because of his second bout, I would like to see him take on the guy ranked right below him Matthew Lopez, who is coming off a first-round TKO of Johnny Eduardo and also enjoys a two-fight winning streak. I believe this potential bantamweight contest should be the featured bout on the televised prelims for October’s UFC 216 at vegas.
