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 a fun night of action that saw half of the bouts end within the space, and with the scraps today in our rear view, let’s take a look at which of the evening’s competitors we may no longer see heading to work inside the Octagon…
ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK
Curran dropped a unanimous decision to Aleksandra Albu at a really entertaining scrap. She’s now on a three-fight losing streak inside the Octagon, falling to 1-5 at the UFC. Following the defeat, despite setting up a solid hard work and winning the next and last round of the fight, I think there’s a good chance that the promotion releases her out of her contract, considering I thought she would surely get discharged after her previous defeat. Right now, she is at what we call“Jessica Eye land,“ therefore it wouldn’t be a shock to see her get a last chance for a third time.
Burkman was knocked out from the Drew Dober of Colorado. The loss puts him onto a four-fight losing streak from the UFC, the final two of which have now come by first-round finish. He retired after his previous reduction, which was a first-round, north-south choke submission against Michel Prazeres, leaving his gloves in the Octagon. But he returned to the Dober bout and changed his mind. Whether he retires for good or not, I think it’s fair to say that we’ve seen the last of Burkman within the Octagon, and that I don’t expect to see the The Ultimate Fighter 2 veteran returning for a third stint with the promotion.
