The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in Singapore for the second time in promotional history Saturday (June 17, 2017) with UFC Fight Night 111: Holm vs. Correia. It was an entertaining night of scraps that saw six of 12 bouts end inside the distance, and with that action now in our rear view, let us take a look at which of the evening’s competitions we may no longer see heading to work within the Octagon…
ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK
Arlovski came up at a unanimous-decision reduction to Marcin Tybura and has now suffered five straight defeats within the Octagon, with all five of them coming against the heavy hitters of this division. It wouldn’t surprise me to see him get another opportunity, but I think that it is very likely that we’ve seen the last of Arlovski. If they desired to keep him around, I think they would have given him a different opponent than Tybura, since the Pole was riding a red hot win series with a set of knockout finishes.
Saffiedine has now suffered three consecutive 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. Due to that losing streak, I think there is a fair possibility that the promotion will opt to part ways with the prior Strikeforce welterweight champion. I’d say it is 50/50 as to whether we see Saffiedine remain in the organization.
Gomi has last four in a row — throughout first-round finish — and it’s likely that the 38-year-old veteran will be receiving his walking papers out of the advertising. The simple fact that there is a card coming up in Japan makes me think they may give him one more crack, therefore at this time, we have a 50/50 shot best of viewing”The Fireball Kid” back.
