The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in Singapore for the second time in promotional history last Saturday (June 17, 2017) with UFC Fight Night 111: Holm vs. Correia. It was an entertaining night of bits that found half of 12 bouts end inside the distance, and with that action today in our rear perspective, let us take a look at some possible matchups featuring a few of the competitors in the evening…
Bethe Correia vs. Liz Carmouche
Correia suffered a third-round knockout against Holly Holm last weekend and will be looking to go back to the win column her next time out. I think a matchup that is logical for her next excursion within the Octagon would be one against fellow former UFC women’s bantamweight title challenger Liz Carmouche. It could be quite a rare”winner versus loser” matchup in the division, but it’s a pairing I think makes a lot of sense. I think this prospective women’s 135-pound competition are a good fit 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 main card bouts at UFC Fight Night 111, together with Covington taking a unanimous-decision triumph over Dong Hyun Kim and dos Anjos earning a nod nod against former Strikeforce welterweight champion Tarec Saffiedine. It was a solid welterweight debut for dos Anjos, also I believe Covington would be a fantastic competitor for his next excursion, as the two of them are looking to break into the Top 15 in 170 lbs. This potential welterweight contest would be a wonderful fit for the card to the UFC 215 at Seattle of August.
“Stun Gun” Dong Hyun Kim vs. Alan Jouban
This welterweight showdown has of producing fireworks that are great possibility. It could also prove to be a lackluster struggle if Kim uses a grappling-heavy game plan and finds success with it. I am not sure he will though, as I could watch Jouban maintaining the fight standing. Jouban did show enhanced takedown defense in his final outing against Gunnar Nelson despite dropping via second-round guillotine-choke entry after being dropped using a punch to the forehead. Kim is coming from a unanimous-decision loss to Covington, also like Jouban, he’ll want to bounce back into the win column his next time out. I believe this fight would be a fit for September’s UFC Fight Night in Japan.
