The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in Anaheim, CA for the first time in promotional background Saturday (July 29, 2017) with UFC 214: Cormier vs. Jones II. It was an entertaining night of activity that saw half the bouts end within the distance, and with all the scraps now in our rear view, let us look at which of the day’s opponents we might no longer see heading to work within the Octagon…
ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK
A unanimous decision dropped to Aleksandra Albu at a scrap that was really entertaining. She’s now on a three-fight losing streak within the Octagon, falling to 1-5 in the UFC. After the defeat, despite setting up a solid effort and winning the third and final round of this fight, I think there is a fantastic likelihood that the advertising releases her from her contract, believing I thought she would surely get discharged after her prior defeat. At this time, she is at what we call”Jessica Eye territory,” therefore it would not totally be a shock to see her receive a last opportunity for a third time.
Burkman was knocked out in the first round of the bout against the Drew Dober of Colorado. The loss puts him on a four-fight losing streak in the UFC, the last two of which have now come by first-round finish. He retired after his prior reduction, which had been a first-round, north-south choke submission against Michel Prazeres, leaving his gloves at the Octagon. However he returned for the Dober bout and changed his mind. Whether he retires for good or not, I believe it’s fair to say that we’ve seen the last of Burkman within the Octagon, and I don’t expect to find the The Ultimate Fighter 2 veteran returning for a third stint with the advertising.
