The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was in Stockholm, Sweden for the fifth time in promotional history last Sunday (May 28, 2017) using UFC Fight Night 109: Gustafsson vs. Teixeira. It turned out to be a good night of fights that saw six of 12 bouts end by finish, and with the scraps now in our rear perspective, let’s take a look at which of the evening’s competitors we might no longer see in activity inside the Octagon…
ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK
Nicholson lost via first-round TKO and happened on Jack Hermansson. He is now on 1-3 at the UFC and a deficit inside the Octagon. Following the reduction to Hermansson, I think there is a good opportunity that Nicholson will be getting his walking papers out of the promotion. Along with his recent slide, he’s also known to make headlines for reasons that were negative, and that I feel the UFC will be pleased cutting ties . I see him getting published, and I don’t find him working his way back into the big display, despite being just 27 years of age.
Camozzi came up at a unanimous-decision reduction to Trevor Smith and is presently riding a three-fight losing streak in what is his third stint with the UFC. He was released after four successive losses last time, and it has dropped just three consecutive this time, but I think it’s probably he will be getting a pink slip from the advertising. I would like to see him get a fourth shot for a second time, but I have my doubts about it. Should he get published, I believe this time he will head to Bellator instead of the regional circuit in Colorado in hopes of working his way into a fourth UFC stint.
Musoke returned to take in Sweden on Bojan Velickovic in front of the home crowd. He was up on the judges’ scorecards en route to some decision victory using half a minute left in the contest. That is when he had been captured with a check right hook that staggered him, placing him on ice skates and enabling Velickovic to finish him. The reduction makes it two straight for the Swede, and he is currently four. I believe that it is 60/40 he will be getting released from the UFC. I lean towards them giving him a third chance since he returned from an elongated layoff, was winning the fight until becoming caught and the promotion would use him European cards.
