The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in Singapore for the second time in promotional background last Saturday (June 17, 2017) using UFC Fight Night 111: Holm vs. Correia. It was an entertaining night of scraps that saw half of 12 bouts ending within the space, and with this action now in our rear perspective, let’s look at which of the evening’s competitions we might no longer see heading to work inside the Octagon…
ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK
Arlovski came up short in a unanimous-decision loss to Marcin Tybura and has now suffered five consecutive defeats within the Octagon, with all five of them coming from the heavy hitters of this division. It would not surprise me to see him get another opportunity, but I think that it’s likely that we’ve seen the last of Arlovski. If they desired to keep him around, I believe they would have given him a different competitor than Tybura, as the Pole was riding a red hot win streak with a pair of knockout finishes.
Saffiedine has now suffered three successive defeats and is 1-4 in his past five trips inside the Octagon. The lone victory during that stretch has been a unanimous-decision over Jake Ellenberger. As a result of this losing streak, I think there’s a fair chance that the promotion will elect to part ways with all the prior Strikeforce welterweight champion. I would say it’s 50/50 as to if we see Saffiedine stay in the business.
Gomi has last four in a row — throughout first-round finish — and it’s probable that the 38-year-old veteran will likely be receiving his walking papers from the advertising. The fact that there is a card coming up in Japan makes me believe they can give him yet another crack, therefore at this point, we’ve got a 50/50 shot best of viewing”The Fireball Kid” back.
