The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was in Stockholm, Sweden for the fifth time in promotional background last Sunday (May 28, 2017) using UFC Fight Night 109: Gustafsson vs. Teixeira. It was a solid night of fights that watched six of 12 bouts end by end, and with all the scraps now in our rear perspective, let’s look at that of the evening’s competitors we may no longer see in action within the Octagon…
Alex Nicholson
Nicholson took on Jack Hermansson and lost via TKO. He is currently on 1-3 in the UFC and a two-fight deficit within the Octagon. Following the loss to Hermansson, I presume there is a good chance that Nicholson will be getting his walking papers from the promotion. Along with his recent slide, he is also known to produce headlines for negative reasons, and that I feel the UFC is going to be happy cutting off ties with him. I see him becoming released, and I don’t see him working his way back to the big show, despite being only 27 decades old.
Chris Camozzi
Camozzi came up at a unanimous-decision loss to Trevor Smith and is presently riding a three-fight losing streak in what’s his third stint with the UFC. He was discharged after four consecutive losses last time and has dropped only three straight this time, but I think it’s probably that he will be receiving a pink slip from the advertising. I would prefer to watch him get a fourth shot for another time, but I have my doubts about it. Should he get published, I think this time he’ll head to Bellator instead of the regional circuit in Colorado in hopes of working his way to a fourth UFC stint.
Nico Musoke
Musoke returned to shoot in Sweden on Bojan Velickovic in front of his home crowd. He had been up on the judges’ scorecards en route to a decision victory using half a minute left in the competition. That is when he had been caught with a test right hook that staggered him, placing him on ice skates and enabling Velickovic to finish him. The reduction makes it two for the Swede, and he’s now four years. I believe that it is 60/40 he is going to be getting released from the UFC. I lean towards them giving him a third shot because he just returned from an extended layoff, was winning the fight until getting caught and the advertising would use him for European cards.
