The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in Singapore for the second time in promotional history last 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 ending within the distance, and with that activity today in our rear perspective, let’s take a look at that of the evening’s competitors we might no longer see going to work inside the Octagon…
ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK
Arlovski came up at a unanimous-decision loss to Marcin Tybura and has suffered five consecutive defeats inside the Octagon, together with five of them coming against the heavy hitters of this branch. It wouldn’t shock me to see him get another opportunity, but I think it’s very likely that we’ve seen the last of Arlovski. If they desired to keep him around, I think that they could have given him another opponent than Tybura, since the Pole was riding a red hot win streak with a pair of knockout finishes.
Saffiedine has suffered three successive defeats and is 1-4 in his past five trips within the Octagon. The lone victory during this stretch has been a unanimous-decision over Jake Ellenberger. As a result of this losing streak, I believe there’s a fair possibility that the promotion will elect to part ways with the former Strikeforce welterweight champion. I would say it’s 50/50 as to whether we see Saffiedine stay in the organization.
Gomi has last four in a row — all via first-round end — and it is probable that the 38-year-old veteran will likely be receiving his walking papers from the advertising. The fact that there’s a card coming up in Japan makes me believe they can give him one more crack, so at this point, we’ve got a 50/50 shot best of seeing”The Fireball Kid” back.
