The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for the eight years in promotional history Saturday (June 3, 2017) using UFC 212: Aldo vs. Holloway. It was a good night of bits which found nine of 12 bouts ending inside the distance, and with the struggles currently in our rear perspective, let’s take a look at some possible matchups featuring a few of the opponents in the evening…
Max Holloway vs. Frankie Edgar
Holloway dethroned Jose Aldo to turn into new king at 145 pounds, and because of his 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 have been trying to watch for a little while now. The other possible candidate for a title shot in Cub Swanson, but his last loss came at the hands of Holloway at a really decisive fashion. That is not a fight that peaks the interest of fight fans, as Holloway would be expected to be a massive favorite. The Edgar battle is one in so everybody wants to see it. I think this potential featherweight title would would be 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, defeating her from rear-naked choke submission in the very first form of activity. She now enjoys a two-fight winning streak, also for her next excursion inside the Octagon, I would like to see her shoot on Namajunas at a title eliminator. Both fighters earned rapid victories in their most recent bouts, so I want to see them create a fast turnaround to co-main occasion August’s UFC Fight Night in Mexico City.
Brian Kelleher vs. Bryan Caraway
Kelleher earned a first-round guillotine-choke submission over veteran Iuri Alcantara in what was a picture perfect promotional introduction for the 30-year-old, who employed his post-fight address to ask for a Top 10 ranked opponent for a fast turnaround on the upcoming Long Island card at July. I think an opponent which makes sense is Caraway, who has not seen action as a split decision win over Aljamain Sterling only over one year ago. I think this is a pairing that makes sense for both fighters and would be a good fit anywhere on the Long Island fight card.
