The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was in Stockholm, Sweden for the fifth time in promotional history Sunday (May 28, 2017) using UFC Fight Night 109: Gustafsson vs. Teixeira. It turned out to be a good night of battles which watched half of 12 bouts end by finish, and with all the scraps today in our rear view, let’s look at which of the evening’s competitors we may no longer see in activity inside the Octagon…
ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK
Nicholson lost via TKO and took on Jack Hermansson. He’s now on a two-fight deficit inside the Octagon and 1-3 at the UFC. After the reduction to Hermansson, I think there is a fantastic opportunity that Nicholson will be receiving his walking papers from the advertising. In addition to his latest skid, he’s also known to produce headlines for negative reasons, and I believe the UFC will be happy cutting off ties with him. I see him becoming released, and I really don’t find him working his way back into the huge show, despite being just 27 years of age.
Camozzi came up at a unanimous-decision loss 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 consecutive losses last time, and it has dropped only three consecutive this time, but I believe that it’s probably he will be getting a pink slip from the promotion. I personally would prefer to watch him get a fourth shot for another 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 to shoot in Sweden on Bojan Velickovic in front of the home crowd. He was up on the judges’ scorecards en route to some conclusion victory using half a minute left in the contest. That is when he had been caught with a check right hook which staggered him, placing him on ice skates and allowing Velickovic to finish him. The loss makes it two for the Swede, and he is currently four years. I think it is 60/40 he will probably be getting released from the UFC. I lean towards them giving him a third shot since he just returned from an elongated layoff, was winning the struggle until getting caught and the promotion could use him for European cards.
