The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for the eight years in promotional background last Saturday (June 3, 2017) using UFC 212: Aldo vs. Holloway. It was a good night of scraps which found nine of 12 bouts end inside the distance, and with the fights now in our rear perspective, let us take a look at some possible matchups featuring a few of the competitors in the evening…
Max Holloway vs. Frankie Edgar
Holloway dethroned Jose Aldo to turn into brand new king at 145 pounds, and because of his very first official name defense, I think it would make most sense for him to take on Frankie Edgar, as that is a matchup fight fans are trying to see for a little while today. The other potential candidate for a title shot in Cub Swanson, but his last loss came in the hands of Holloway in a really decisive fashion. That’s not a fight that peaks the interest of fight fans, as Holloway will be anticipated to be a massive favorite. The Edgar fight is one in which anything could happen, so everybody wants to watch it. I believe this potential featherweight title would are an excellent fit to primary event UFC 216 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Claudia Gadelha vs. Rose Namajunas
Gadelha made short work of Poland’s Karolina Kowalkiewicz, beating her from rear-naked choke entry from the very first form of action. She enjoys a two-fight winning series, also for her next excursion inside the Octagon, I want to watch her shoot on Namajunas in a title eliminator. Both fighters earned rapid victories in their latest bouts, so I want to see them make a fast turnaround to co-main occasion August’s UFC Fight Night in Mexico City.
Brian Kelleher vs. Bryan Caraway
Kelleher gained a first-round guillotine-choke entry over veteran Iuri Alcantara in what was a picture perfect promotional introduction for its 30-year-old, who employed his post-fight speech to ask for a Top 10 ranked opponent for a fast turnaround on the upcoming Long Island card at July. I think an opponent that makes sense is Caraway, that has not seen action since a split decision win over Aljamain Sterling just over one year ago. I believe this is a pairing which is reasonable for both fighters and are a good fit anyplace on the Long Island card.
