The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was live from Oklahoma City, OK for the third time in promotional history Sunday (July 25, 2017) using UFC Fight Night 112: Chiesa vs. Lee. It was a solid night of scraps which found five of 13 bouts ending inside the distance, and with action today in our rear view, let’s take a look at some possible matchups featuring a few of the opponents from the evening…
Dominick Reyes vs. Marcos Rogerio Lima
Reyes impressed in his promotional introduction by dismantling and knocking out Joachim Christensen in just less than half a minute to the opening round of action. It was a picture-perfect debut for its undefeated light hearted, who could potentially bring some new life to the razor-thin branch. For his next outing inside the Octagon, I want to watch him shoot on TUF two finalist Marcos Rogerio de Lima, who is coming from a second-round entry loss to Ovince St. Preux only a few weeks ago. I believe the Brazilian is a good evaluation for Reyes his second time out, which is a potential matchup I would be interested in seeing booked for a future card. I believe it would be a good addition to the card for September’s UFC 215 at Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Clay Guida vs. Jon Tuck
Guida impressed in his return to action in the UFC’s lightweight branch following a short stint at featherweight. Coming off a third-round TKO loss to Brian Ortega, Guida returned to the win column in remarkable fashion last weekend by surviving a tough opening round against Erik Koch, only to return and dominate the next two rounds for a unanimous-decision success. It was a classic Clay Guida performance along with an impressive victory for”The Carpenter” back in 155 lbs. For his next outing, I’d be interested in seeing him shoot on Guam’s Jon Tuck, who is coming off a first-round rear-naked choke entry win over Takanori Gomi. I believe this possible lightweight contest would be a solid addition to the preliminary card for October’s UFC 216 at vegas.
Tony Martin vs. Francisco Trinaldo
Martin defeated Johnny Case via unanimous conclusion on the judges’ scorecards following three back-and-forth rounds of entertaining action. The success puts him on a three fight-winning series within the Octagon, and he hopes to make it four straight against ranked opposition his next time out. Input: Francisco Trinaldo. “Masaranduba” is coming from a second-round rear-naked choke entry loss to Kevin Lee, which snapped an impressive seven-fight winning streak for the TUF: Brazil veteran. I think this rare”winner versus loser” matchup at 155 lbs makes sense for the two fighters, and I want to see it reserved for a long struggle card, rather on the primary card for October’s UFC Fight Night in Brazil.
