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 turned out to be a solid night of fights that saw six of 12 bouts end by end, and with all the scraps now in our rear view, let us look at which of the day’s competitors we may no longer see in activity within the Octagon…
ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK
Nicholson took on Jack Hermansson and dropped via TKO. He is now on a deficit within the Octagon and 1-3 at the UFC. After the reduction to Hermansson, I think there is a fantastic chance that Nicholson will be receiving his walking papers out of the advertising. Along with his latest skid, he’s also known to make headlines for reasons that were negative, and I believe the UFC will be pleased cutting off ties . I see him becoming released, and I really don’t see him working his way back into the huge show, despite being only 27 years of age.
Camozzi came up short in 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 released after four consecutive losses last time and has dropped only three consecutive this time, but I think it’s more than likely that he will be receiving a pink slip from the promotion. I personally would prefer to watch him get a fourth shot for a second time, but I’ve got my doubts about it. Should he get released, I believe this time he will head to Bellator rather than the regional circuit in Colorado in hopes of working his way into a fourth UFC stint.
Musoke returned from an elongated layoff to shoot on Bojan Velickovic in front of his home crowd. He had been up on the judges’ scorecards en route to a decision victory with half a minute left in the contest. That is when he was captured with a check right hook that staggered him, placing him on ice skates and allowing Velickovic to finish him. The reduction makes it two straight for the Swede, and he’s now four years. I believe that it is 60/40 that he is going to be getting released from the UFC. I lean towards them giving him a third chance since he returned from an extended layoff, was winning the fight until getting caught and the promotion could use him for European cards.
