The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was in Stockholm, Sweden for the fifth time in promotional history Sunday (May 28, 2017) with UFC Fight Night 109: Gustafsson vs. Teixeira. It turned out to be a good night of fights that saw half of 12 bouts finish by finish, and with all the scraps today in our rear view, let us take a look at that of the day’s competitors we might no longer see in action within the Octagon…
ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK
Nicholson lost through TKO and happened on Jack Hermansson. He’s currently on a deficit within the Octagon and 1-3 in the UFC. After the loss to Hermansson, I presume there’s a good opportunity that Nicholson will be getting his walking papers out of the advertising. In addition to his latest skid, he is also known to make headlines for reasons that were negative, and I feel the UFC is going to be happy cutting off ties with him. I see him getting released, and I really don’t find him working his way back to the huge show, despite being just 27 years old.
Camozzi came up short in a unanimous-decision reduction to Trevor Smith and is now riding a three-fight losing streak in what’s his third stint with the UFC. He was released after four successive losses last time and has dropped just three consecutive this time, but I believe it’s probably he will be receiving a pink slip from the promotion. I personally would prefer to see him get a fourth shot for a second time, but I have my doubts about it. Should he get released, I believe this time he’ll head to Bellator instead of the regional circuit in Colorado in hopes of working his way into a fourth UFC stint.
Musoke returned from an elongated layoff to take on Bojan Velickovic in front of his home crowd in Sweden. He was up on the judges’ scorecards en route to a decision victory using 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 enabling Velickovic to complete him. The reduction makes it two straight for the Swede, and he’s 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 extended layoff, was winning the struggle until getting caught and the advertising would use him for European cards.
