Top 5 matches to make after UFC 261


Kamaru Usman vs Colby Covington

UFC 261 was a massive show capped off with the undisputed UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman 2rd Knockout of Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal. The 33 year old, Usman looks to be getting better and better. Undefeated since joining the UFC, Kamaru is starting to lap the welterweight division. So, my matchup would be a epic matchup that pins Kamaru’s toughest fight so far in the UFC, Colby Covington. A Usman verse Covington re match would be absolute fireworks inside the octagon however they will give us a show outside as well!

Jorge Masvidal vs Nick Diaz

With the “BMF” losing 2 in a row to the champion Kamaru Usman, I have Masvidal going back to his roots in a BMF Showdown! I would matchup Jorge Masvidal against Nick Diaz. Nick Diaz was in attendance in Jacksonville, Florida for UFC 261 to get a closer look of his soon to be advisory. A Nick Diaz fight is must see TV and when you put the “BMF” title on the line, it will be money!


Rose Namajunas vs Zhang Weili

Rose Namajunas vs Zhang Weili. Simple. Re Match.


Valentina Shevchenko vs Lauren Murphy

Valentina Shevchenko defeated Jessica Andrade at UFC 261 via 2nd Round TKO. Valentina Shevchenko looks unstoppable in the female flyweight division. Even Joe Rogan asked this question after the fight “who’s next”. One answer, Lauren Fucking Murphy. Lauren has been grinding for this opportunity and I truly believe she is one win over JoJo in June to capture the title shot.


Brendan Allen vs Ian Heinisch

Brendan “All In” Allen had a tremendous win at UFC 261 against Karl Roberson via 1st Round Heel Hook. Brendan has untapped potential in the UFC’s middleweight division and with Brendan training full time at Sanford MMA in Florida the MMA world is starting to see it. After multiple times of this fight falling apart, I would love to finally see Brendan Allen verse Ian Heinisch meet inside the octagon!
