The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in Anaheim, CA for the first time in promotional background last Saturday (July 29, 2017) using UFC 214: Cormier vs. Jones II. It was an entertaining night of action that saw half the bouts end inside the distance, and with the scraps now in our rear view, let’s take a look at which of the evening’s competitors we may no longer see heading to work within the Octagon…
ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK
Curran dropped a unanimous decision to Aleksandra Albu at a scrap. She is currently on a three-fight losing streak inside the Octagon, falling to 1-5 at the UFC. Following the defeat, despite setting up a good hard work and winning the third and final round of this struggle, I think there’s a good likelihood that the promotion releases her out of her contract, believing I thought she’d certainly get discharged after her prior defeat. Right now, she’s at what we call”Jessica Eye land,” therefore it would not totally be a shock to see her get a last opportunity to get a third time.
Burkman was knocked out in the first round of the bout from the Drew Dober of Colorado. The reduction puts him onto a four-fight losing streak from the UFC, the last two of which have now come from first-round finish. He retired following his prior loss, which was a first-round, north-south choke entry against Michel Prazeres, leaving his gloves in the Octagon. However he returned to the Dober bout and changed his mind. Whether he retires for good or not, I believe it’s reasonable to say that we have seen the last of Burkman within the Octagon, and that I do not expect to find the The Ultimate Fighter 2 veteran returning for a third stint with the advertising.
