UFC London is now in the books and it is safe to say that this was a great event. There were many upsets where the underdog defeated the odds. Paul Craig got a finish on the last second of the fight where he was losing the fight. Alexander Volkov knocked out the former UFC Heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum in the main event. Here below is the fights that we want to be scheduled after this event.
1 Alexander Volkov vs Derrick Lewis
Alexander Volkov has proved himself and has shown everyone that he is a legit fighter in the Heavyweight. Derrick Lewis has proved himself as well and is very fun to watch. We would love this matchup!
2 Jan Blachowicz vs Ilir Latifi II
Jan Blachowicz was very impressive in his win over Jimi Manuva. We think this win adds a lot of options for the future of the Light Heavyweight division. Jimi Manuva, Illir Latifi and Alexander Gustafsson are all training together and they were all sitting at the top of the division and probably unwilling fighting each other. Jan Blachowicz fought Ilir Latifi at UFC Stockholm, Sweden in 2014 and knocked him out in the first round. Illir Latifi wanted to fight Daniel Cormier after his 1st round win over Ovince St. Preux at UFC Orlando earlier this year. We don´t think he is ready for Cormier yet.
3 Tom Duquesnoy vs Ricardo Ramos
Tom Duquesnoy is a talented fighter and former BAMMA Bantamweight Champion before he joined the UFC. He is only 24 years old. He has a lot more to come and we believe that he is destined to great things in the UFC. Ricardo Ramos is another young great fighter 22 years old with two wins in the UFC 11-1 in his career. This fight would decide who is the future of the Bantamweight division.
4. Leon Edwards vs Gunnar Nelson
Leon Edwards called out Darren Till after his win over Peter Sobotta and wanted the main event spot at UFC Liverpool that has been scheduled at 27th May. We think that Darren Till does not want to fight Edwards there neither does he want to fight Gunnar Nelson there. We think Leon Edwards vs Gunnar Nelson would be a great co-main event for that event!
5. Danny Henry vs Levan Makashvili
