Future Fights UFC Fight Night 68 went down this weekend and while no one was amped for the card it more than delivered. Do you agree with their next matches?
Future Fights UFC Fight Night 68: Main Event
Dan Henderson vs. Tim Kennedy or Rampage Jackson
Henderson has a myriad of options as he has won a match and gave the retirement talk a brief period of rest. If he wants to continue to climb toward a title shot, Time kennedy would make a solid matchup with someone not known to knockout too many people. If he wants to fight another older fighter that would still draw interest Rampage jackson might be a good rematch for him.
Tim Boestch vs. Costas Philippou
Boestch ans Philippou are somehow still ranked in the top 15 despite multiple losses. A match up between the two would give someone a claim to still stay there and free up some rosters space since the loser would be cut.
Future Fights UFC Fight Night 68: Main Card
Ben Rothwell vs. Stipe Miocic
Rothwell may say that Miocic is the next in line but at 1-1 in his last two fights he needs at least another win. Arlovski on the other hand has won three straight. Let Rothwell and Miocic battle it out for the next title shot after Arlovski gets his.
Matt Mitrione vs. Stefan Struve
They were supposed to fight before Struve fainted in the back of the dressing room before their fight. Struve is now lined to fight the legend Big Nog and regardless of the outcome there, he should face off with Mitrione to see who has the skill to be a top flight fighter in the UFC Heavyweight division.
Dustin Poirier vs. Adriano Martins
Poirier has had two great finishes but they were not over anyone great that great at 155. He still needs time to build no matter how good he proved himself to be at 145. Martins sits at 4-1 in the Octagon with his only loss coming to Donald Cerrone. If Poirier can blitz him then maybe a top ten challenge in his next fight.
Anthony Birchak vs. Fransico Rivera
Both won impressively on the main card and both have losses in their past few fights. Rivera has fought enough top talent to show whether Birchak has a chance at beating anyone in the top ten depending on how he does against Rivera.
Brian Ortega vs. Chas Skelly
Both are up and coming talent that are looking to break into the top of the Featherweight division. A fight against one another would prove who has the right to call out a top ten opponent. As long as Ortega passes his drug test this time.
Future Fights UFC Fight Night 68: Undercard
Shawn Jordan vs. Winner of Antonio Silva vs. Sao Palelei
Shawn Jordan wants to fight the best and the winner of Silva and Palelei is a top level talent in the UFC. If he has reams of making it to the top he needs to learn to protect his chin. If he hasn’t, either of these men will prove it.
