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 bits which found half of 12 bouts ending within the space, and with this activity now in our rear perspective, let us take a look at some potential matchups featuring some of the opponents in the evening…
Bethe Correia vs. Liz Carmouche
Correia endured a third-round knockout against Holly Holm this past weekend and will be seeking to return to the win column her out time. I think that a matchup which is logical for her next excursion within the Octagon would be one against fellow former UFC women’s bantamweight title challenger Liz Carmouche. It would be quite a rare”winner versus loser” matchup in the division, but it’s a pairing I think makes a great deal of sense. I believe this potential women’s 135-pound contest would be a good match for the primary card to October’s UFC Fight Night in Brazil.
Colby Covington vs. Rafael dos Anjos
Covington and Dos Anjos were each successful in their principal card charms at UFC Fight Night 111, with Covington carrying a unanimous-decision triumph over Dong Hyun Kim and dos Anjos making a unanimous nod against former Strikeforce welterweight champion Tarec Saffiedine. It was a strong welterweight introduction for dos Anjos, and I think Covington would be a fantastic opponent for his next excursion, as both of them are looking to break into the Top 15 in 170 lbs. This welterweight competition would be a wonderful fit for the card to the UFC 215 in Seattle of August.
“Stun Gun” Dong Hyun Kim vs. Alan Jouban
This welterweight showdown that is possible has possibility of producing fireworks that are great. It might also turn out to be a lackluster fight if Kim uses 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 position. Jouban did show enhanced takedown defense in his last outing against Gunnar Nelson despite losing via second-round guillotine-choke submission after being dropped using a punch to the brow. Kim is coming off a unanimous-decision reduction to Covington, also like Jouban, he’ll be looking to bounce back to the win column his next time out. I believe this struggle would be a fit for September’s UFC Fight Night in Japan.
