The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in Anaheim, CA for the first time in promotional background 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 inside the distance, and with the scraps today in our rear view, let us take a look at that of the evening’s competitors we may no longer see heading to work within the Octagon…
ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK
Curran dropped a decision to Aleksandra Albu in a scrap that was really entertaining. She is currently on a three-fight losing streak inside the Octagon, falling to 1-5 at the UFC. After the defeat, despite putting up a good hard work and winning the next and last round of the struggle, I think there is a good chance that the promotion releases her out of her contract, considering I thought she’d surely get discharged after her previous 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 to get a third time.
Burkman was knocked out in the first round of his bout against Colorado’s Drew Dober. The loss puts him onto a four-fight losing streak in the UFC, the last two of which have come from first-round finish. He retired following his prior reduction, which had been a first-round, north-south choke entry against Michel Prazeres, leaving his gloves at the Octagon. But he changed his mind and returned for the Dober bout. Whether he retires for good or not, I think it’s fair to say that we have seen the last of Burkman inside the Octagon, and that I don’t expect to see the The Ultimate Fighter 2 veteran returning for a third stint with the advertising.
