The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in Singapore for the second time in promotional history Saturday (June 17, 2017) using UFC Fight Night 111: Holm vs. Correia. It was an entertaining night of bits that saw six of 12 bouts ending inside the space, and with this action today in our rear perspective, let us look at some potential 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 return to the win column her next time out. I believe a matchup that makes sense for her next outing inside the Octagon will be one against fellow former UFC women’s bantamweight title challenger Liz Carmouche. It could be quite a rare”winner versus failure” matchup in the branch, but it’s a pairing I believe makes a great deal of sense. I believe this prospective women’s 135-pound competition are a good match for the main card to October’s UFC Fight Night in Brazil.
Colby Covington vs. Rafael dos Anjos
Covington and Dos Anjos were each successful in their principal card charms at UFC Fight Night 111, with Covington taking a unanimous-decision triumph over Dong Hyun Kim and dos Anjos earning a unanimous nod against former Strikeforce welterweight champion Tarec Saffiedine. It was a strong welterweight introduction for dos Anjos, and that I think Covington would be a fantastic opponent for his next outing, as both of them are looking to break into the Top 15 at 170 pounds. This potential welterweight competition would be a nice fit for the card that is preliminary to the UFC 215 at Seattle of August.
“Stun Gun” Dong Hyun Kim vs. Alan Jouban
This possible welterweight showdown has of producing fireworks possibility. It might also prove to be a lackluster fight if Kim uses a grappling-heavy game plan and finds success with it. I’m not sure he will though, as I could watch Jouban keeping the fight standing. Jouban did show improved takedown defense in his last outing against Gunnar Nelson despite losing via second-round guillotine-choke submission after being dropped with a punch to the forehead. Kim is coming from a unanimous-decision reduction to Covington, also like Jouban, he will be looking to bounce back into the win column his second time out. I think this fight would be a solid match for the UFC Fight Night in Japan of September.
