The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for the eight years in promotional background last Saturday (June 3, 2017) using UFC 212: Aldo vs. Holloway. It was a good night of bits which found nine of 12 bouts end within the space, and with the struggles now in our rear perspective, let’s look at some possible matchups featuring some of the opponents from the evening… Max Holloway vs. Frankie Edgar Holloway dethroned Jose Aldo to become to new king at 145 lbs, and for his first official title defense, I think that it would make most sense for him to take on Frankie Edgar, as that is a matchup fight fans are trying to watch for a while today. Another potential candidate for a title shot at Cub Swanson, but his last loss came at the hands of Holloway in a very decisive fashion. That’s not a battle that peaks the interest of fight fans, as Holloway would be expected to be a huge favorite. The Edgar fight is one in which anything could happen, so everybody would like to watch it. I believe this possible featherweight title would are a great match to main event UFC 216 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Claudia Gadelha vs. Rose Namajunas Gadelha made short work of Poland’s Karolina Kowalkiewicz, defeating her by rear-naked choke submission in the very first form of activity. She now enjoys a two-fight winning streak, and for her next excursion within the Octagon, I want to watch her take on Namajunas in a title eliminator. Both fighters earned quick victories in their latest bouts, so I want to see them make a fast turnaround to co-main event August’s UFC Fight Night in Mexico City. Brian Kelleher vs. Bryan Caraway Kelleher gained a first-round guillotine-choke entry over veteran Iuri Alcantara in what was a picture perfect promotional debut for the 30-year-old, who employed his post-fight address to ask for a Top 10 ranked opponent for a quick turnaround on the coming Long Island card in July. I think an opponent which makes sense is Caraway, that hasn’t seen action as a split decision win over Aljamain Sterling only over one year ago. I believe that is a pairing that makes sense for both fighters and would be a good fit anywhere on the Long Island fight card.
