The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in Anaheim, CA for the seventh time in promotional background Saturday (July 29, 2017) using UFC 214: Cormier vs. Jones II. It was a fun night of action that saw half of the bouts end inside the space, and with the bits now in our rear view, let’s take a look at some potential matchups featuring a few of the competitors from the day…
Daniel Cormier vs. Jimi Manuwa
Cormer lost his UFC light heavyweight title to former name holder Jon“Bones“ Jones in a rematch via third-round TKO. That marked the second official defeat of his MMA profession, with both from Jones. For his return struggle following the loss, I want to see him take on Manuwa, that also came up short at UFC 214, dropping to Volkan Oezdemir via knockout inside the opening minute of the very first round of activity. The Brit was on the edge of a title shot but will now have to go back for another look at the drawing board. If Cormier and Manuwa won, this struggle would have likely gotten produced, but now that they both came up short, I believe it still makes sense to put it together. Early 2018 are a fantastic time to pit both from each other in what is a striker versus grappler matchup.
Tonya Evinger vs. Liz Carmouche
Evinger made her long-awaited UFC debut, although a weight class above in the UFC’s new women’s featherweight division, where she collaborated for the branch’s empty title against Cris“Cyborg“ Justino. She came up short, losing the bout through third-round TKO, though she exhibited tremendous heart and won over many new fans. She will certainly be dropping down into the UFC’s 135-pound branch for her next bout, in which I’d like to watch her take on Carmouche, that last saw action at UFC 205 last November at Madison Square Garden in nyc, where she conquered Katlyn Chookagian via split decision. I think a potential Evinger versus Carmouche matchup would make for an excellent match to the preliminary card for the UFC’s upcoming return visit to the Big Apple to get UFC 217.
Jason Knight vs. Renato Moicano
Knight and Moicano both came up short last Saturday night, with Knight suffering a first-round TKO loss to Ricardo Lamas and Moicano being submitted using a guillotine choke by Brian Ortega from the third round of the competition. After the defeats, I think that it would make sense to pit these two enjoyable featherweights against each other within the Octagon. This potential 145-pound competition would be an ideal match on the main card to the UFC Fight Night in Virginia of November.
