The UFC on ESPN+4 main card started with one of UFC’s most beloved veterans Tim Boetsch as he fought a rising middleweight Omari Akhmedov. Omari won the fight by unanimous decision to continue his winning streak to 3. My next fight for Omari would be another UFC veteran Daniel Kelly.
Next on the card was a submission 2nd Round Win by Beneil Dariush vs Drew Dober. That makes 2 in a row for Beneil Dariush in the UFC’s toughest division, Lightweight. Beneil at age 29 wants to put together a impressive run to the title so, I would match him up with Alexander Hernandez.
We head to HeavyweightVille with Ben Rothwell vs Blagoy Ivanov. Baga won by unanimous decision against Ben Rothwell who has not fought inside the octagon in 2 years. Blagoy is one of the most underrated UFC fighters in the game today. He is 17-2 with his 2 loses against Junior Dos Santos & Alexander Volkov. I would match him up with a top ten heavyweight and my choice would be Tai Bam Bam Tuivasa.
Next we go to the knockout of the night, Niko Price vs Tim Means in the welterweight division. With 10 seconds left in round 1 Niko with a tremendous right hand knocked Tim Means out. If the loss wasn’t damaging enough, on the way down Tim broke his ankle and leg. Niko is a dangerous welterweight who keeps moving up the ladder and his next matchup for me would be Curtis Millender. They both fought on this card so there timelines should matchup perfectly!
In the co main event we had another welterweight matchup between Elizeu Zaleski vs Curtis Millender. Elizeu won in the first round with a rear naked choke submission. Elizeu just keeps racking up win after win in the welterweight division, with 7 straight wins he deserves a big time fight in the division. With a night time fight I would present a big time name, Ruthless Robbie Lawler. This would be a humongous fight for both competitors.
The main event in Wichita Kansas was a gigantic heavyweight contender fight. Junior Dos Santos defeated Derrick Black Beast Lewis with a TKO in the second round. This fight was action packed from the jump with both fighters throwing heavy hands and kicks! JDS is a lock for the UFC Hall of Fame and keeps adding to his legacy. Junior says he wants one more crack at the heavyweight gold but, with a lot of clutter at the top. I would match Junior up with another heavyweight contender Francis N’Gannou. This heavyweight fight would be Bananas!
