The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in Anaheim, CA for the seventh time in promotional background Saturday (July 29, 2017) using UFC 214: Cormier vs. Jones II. It was an entertaining night of action that saw half the bouts end inside the distance, and with the scraps today in our rear view, let us look at that of the day’s opponents we may no longer see heading to work inside the Octagon…
ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK
A unanimous decision dropped to Aleksandra Albu at a very entertaining scrap. She is now on a three-fight losing streak inside the Octagon, falling to 1-5 in the UFC. Following the defeat, despite setting up a good hard work and winning the third and final round of the fight, I think there’s a good chance that the promotion releases her out of her contract, believing I thought she would surely get discharged after her prior defeat. At this time, she is at what we call”Jessica Eye land,” therefore it would not be a shock to see her receive a final 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 from the UFC, the final two of which have now come by first-round finish. He retired after his previous reduction, which had been a first-round, north-south choke submission against Michel Prazeres, leaving his gloves in the Octagon. But he returned for the Dober bout and changed his mind. 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 I don’t expect to see the The Ultimate Fighter 2 veteran returning for a third stint with the advertising.
