    The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in Anaheim, CA for the seventh time in promotional history Saturday (July 29, 2017) with UFC 214: Cormier vs. Jones II. It was a fun night of action that saw half the bouts end inside the distance, and together with the scraps today in our rear view, let us take a look at some potential matchups featuring a few of the competitors in the day…
    Daniel Cormier vs. Jimi Manuwa
    Cormer lost his UFC light heavyweight title to former name holder Jon”Bones” Jones in a rematch through third-round TKO. That marked the defeat of his MMA career, with both coming against Jones. For his return fight after the reduction, I would like to watch him take on Manuwa, that also came up short at UFC 214, losing to Volkan Oezdemir via knockout inside of the opening minute of the very first round of action. The Brit was on the brink of a title shot but will have to return for another look at the drawing board. In case Cormier and Manuwa won, this struggle would have likely gotten produced, but that they both came up short, I believe it still makes sense to put it together. Early 2018 would be a fantastic time to pit these two against each other in what would be a classic striker versus grappler matchup.
    Tonya Evinger vs. Liz Carmouche
    Evinger made her long-awaited UFC debut, although a weight class above in the UFC’s new women’s featherweight division, where she collaborated for the division’s empty title against Cris”Cyborg” Justino. She came up short, losing the bout through third-round TKO, though she displayed huge heart and won over many new fans. She’ll certainly be falling down into the UFC’s 135-pound division for her next bout, in which I would love to watch her take on Carmouche, that last saw action at UFC 205 last November in Madison Square Garden in New York City, where she defeated Katlyn Chookagian via split decision. I believe a potential Evinger versus Carmouche matchup will result in an excellent match to the preliminary card to the UFC’s upcoming return trip to the Big Apple for UFC 217.
    Jason Knight vs. Renato Moicano
    Knight and Moicano both came up short this past Saturday night, together with Knight suffering a first-round TKO loss to Ricardo Lamas and Moicano being submitted with a guillotine choke by Brian Ortega in the third round of the contest. Following the beats, I think that it would make sense to pit these two fun, well-rounded featherweights against each other inside the Octagon. This possible contest would be an ideal match on the primary card to the UFC Fight Night in Virginia of November.
