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 good night of battles which watched half of 12 bouts finish by end, and with the scraps now in our rear view, let’s take a look at which of the day’s competitors we might no longer see in activity inside the Octagon…
ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK
Jack Hermansson was taken on by nicholson and dropped via first-round TKO. He’s currently on 1-3 at the UFC and a two-fight deficit inside the Octagon. After the loss to Hermansson, I think there’s a fantastic chance that Nicholson will be getting his walking papers out of the promotion. In addition to his recent skid, he’s also known to produce headlines for negative reasons, and I feel the UFC will be pleased cutting ties with him. I see him getting published, and I really don’t find him working his way back into the huge display, despite being only 27 years old.
Camozzi came up at a unanimous-decision reduction to Trevor Smith and is now riding a three-fight losing streak in what is his third stint with the UFC. He was discharged after four successive losses last time and has dropped just three straight this time, but I believe that it’s probably he will be receiving a pink slip from the advertising. I would like to watch him get a fourth shot for another time, but I have my doubts about it. Should he get published, I believe this time he will head to Bellator rather than the regional circuit in Colorado in hopes of working his way to a fourth UFC stint.
Musoke returned from an extended layoff to take in Sweden on Bojan Velickovic in the front of his home crowd. He was up on the judges’ scorecards en route to a conclusion triumph using half a minute left in the contest. That’s when he had been captured with a check right hook which staggered him, putting him on ice skates and enabling Velickovic to complete him. The reduction makes it two for the Swede, and he’s now 1-3 in his last four years. I believe it is 60/40 he is going to be getting released from the UFC. I lean towards them giving him a third chance since he just returned from an extended layoff, was winning the struggle until getting caught and the promotion would use him European cards.
