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 a fun night of activity that saw half the bouts end inside the distance, and with the scraps now in our rear perspective, let us look at which of the evening’s competitors we might no longer see going to work inside the Octagon…
ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK
A unanimous decision dropped to Aleksandra Albu at a scrap that was really entertaining. She is currently on a three-fight losing streak within the Octagon, falling to 1-5 in the UFC. After the defeat, despite putting up a solid hard work and winning the third and final round of this struggle, I think there’s a good chance that the advertising releases her out of her contract, believing I thought she’d certainly get released after her prior defeat. At this time, she is at what we call »Jessica Eye land, » so it would not totally be a shock to see her get a last opportunity to get a third time.
Burkman was knocked out from Colorado’s Drew Dober. The reduction puts him onto a four-fight losing streak in the UFC, the last two of which have come from 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. But he returned to the Dober bout and changed his mind. Whether he retires for good or not, I believe it’s reasonable to say that we have seen the last of Burkman within the Octagon, and that I do not expect to find the Ultimate Fighter 2 veteran returning for a third stint with the advertising.
