UFC Matchup Roundup: UFC on Fox 16
Paul Felder vs. Edson Barboza
Originally this fight had ex champion Anthony Pettis making his return after his title loss to face recently defeated Myles Jury. Of course the oft injured Pettis became injured and Edson Barboza stepped in to face Myles Jury. Now, Jury himself has become injured and Paul Felder has stepped in to face Barboza. Fidler is undefeated at 10-0 and was supposed to fight Jim Miller back in April but will now have another chance at a top ten Lightweight. Barboza will be coming off a loss from his fight to Michael Johnson.
UFC Matchup Roundup: UFC 190
Demain Maia vs. Neil Magny
Maia and Magny are now locked up for a fight and the interesting thing about this is it is Magny’s first top ten level fighter even though he has won seven straight fights. No one has had to win more than eight straight fights to get a title shot which was evident when Donald Cerrone captured his eighth straight win earlier this year. Does that mean with a win that Magny will get a title shot? Well, it is hard to tell with the way the UFC hands out their title shots. Magny will be taking on Maia who has won two straight against young up and comers most recently giving Ryan LaFlare his first loss.
UFC Matchup Roundup: UFC Fight Night 74
Sara McMann vs. Amanda Nunes
This is a fight between one fighter looking to break into the top five and another fighter who is looking to re-establish herself as a top talent in the UFC Women’s Bantamweight division. McMann has had a tough go of things after getting finished by rouse in under 30 seconds in her title shot considering she followed that performance up with a three round decision loss to Miesha Tate. Nunes was close to her own title shot but gassed out in her fight with Cat Zingano and lost that bout. She picked up a TKO win over Shayna Baszler and looks to add her first former number on contender to her list of victims.
