SCHAUMBURG, IL APRIL 16, 2022
So it’s been a very long time coming since The Schmo was asking Dana White to begin a grand prix at a UFC press occasion when beginning a 165 lbs division and transferring welterweight from 170 to 175 lbs. Because the UFC acquired larger and higher over time, one factor was sure. That they had a humiliation of riches on the light-weight and welterweight divisions. Many fighters minimize insane quantities of weight to hit their division weight limits and whereas the celebrities of those divisions are unbelievable, it’s time to begin contemplating including the extra division. Many individuals don’t know the way it might work and that’s as a result of there isn’t any appropriate reply. However one thing attention-grabbing occured this week. The UFC rankings (decided by a choose group of media members) had moved Dustin Poirier to a tie for no 1 contender within the light-weight division with Justin Gaethje, No fights befell for there to be any purpose for the sudden change so many followers have been left scratching their heads. Whereas I’ve no purpose or proof behind this, I imagine it is a transfer to thicken the plot between a doable bout between Poirier and former American Prime Crew teammate, #1 welterweight contender, Colby Covington.A matchup being set to usher in the preliminary title combat between two primary contenders is strictly what the UFC might be searching for. Two former interim champs competing to be the primary undisputed champion of a model new division is sort of a film ending.
I’ve been a agency believer in the potential of the 2 of them combating and with Poirier trying to combat quickly and seemingly no deal is being made with Nate Diaz, Colby might be the most important cash combat for the Louisiana native. The 2 have been giving pictures backwards and forwards and after Covington dominated American Prime Crew fighter, Jorge Masvidal, we might be sitting trying on the predominant occasion matchup at Worldwide Struggle Week in Las Vegas, NV this July.
