The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in Singapore for the second time in promotional history last Saturday (June 17, 2017) using UFC Fight Night 111: Holm vs. Correia. It was a fun night of bits that found half of 12 bouts end within the space, and with that action today in our rear view, let’s look at some possible matchups featuring a few of the competitors from the evening…
Bethe Correia vs. Liz Carmouche
Correia suffered a third-round knockout against Holly Holm last weekend and will be looking to return to the win column her next time out. I believe 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 could be quite a rare”winner versus loser” matchup from the division, but it’s a pairing I believe makes a lot of sense. I think this potential women’s 135-pound competition would be a fantastic 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 own principal card charms 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, and I believe Covington would be a fantastic competitor for his next excursion, as both of them are seeking to break into the Top 15 in 170 pounds. This welterweight competition would be a nice fit for the card to August’s UFC 215 at Seattle.
“Stun Gun” Dong Hyun Kim vs. Alan Jouban
This welterweight showdown has of creating great fireworks potential. It could 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 see Jouban maintaining the fight position. 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 reduction to Covington, also like Jouban, he’ll want to bounce back to the win column his next time out. I believe this struggle would be a solid match for the UFC Fight Night in Japan of September.
