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