Derrick Lewis vs Allistair Overeem
Since the Heavyweight Division is finally up and running with Miocic vs Cormier scheduled for UFC 252. Rest of the the Heavyweight division can follow.
Allistair Overeem last fight was defeating Walt Harris. In September at UFC 253 Khabib vs Gaethje in a main card fight against fan favorite “My Balls were hot” Derrick Lewis.
Last fight for Derrick Lewis was against Ilir Laftifi at 247. Time for Derrick Lewis to return and fight Allstair Overeem in a #3 Heavyweight contender fight. Waiting in line for a title shot.
Corey Anderson vs Glover Teixeira
Corey Anderson lost his last fight against Jan Blachowicz. Knocked out in the first round. Even though Corey lost he remains the #4 Light Heavyweight. Only 30 years old in the prime of his career will still have a promising career as a Light Heavyweight.
Only 40 years old Glover Teixeira coming off a spectacular dominant win over Anthony Smith is still a problem to the Light Heavyweight division.
Corey Anderson vs Glover Teixeira is a fight that makes sense for both sides. Corey defeats Glover will be the biggest win of his career while on the other hand if Glover wins than he shows everyone that age doesn’t make a difference.
Vicente Luque vs Geoff Neal
Vicente Luque and Geoff Neal are two rising welterweights, Both have potential to become Welterweight Champions. Luque coming off a dominant performance against Price while Neal’s last win was against Mike Perry.
Luque vs Neal would be a great fight to watch. Close fight to call.
Dober vs Islam Makhachev
Drew Dober three fight winning streak last win was against Alexander Hernandez. Dober ranked #15 Lightweight. Dober is Justin Gaethje’s training partner.
Dober can fight Khabib’s training partner Islam Makhachev who hasn’t fought since UFC 242. Makhachev is the next Khabib,
Storyline of training partners for the UFC 253 fighters would be a story to tell.
Dober vs Makhachev would be a great fight to watch, First fight on the UFC 253 Main Card.
Sodiq Yusuff vs Arnold Allen
Sodiq Yusuff Dana White Contender Series alumni is a future Featherweight Champion. Next UFC champion from Nigeria. Impressive win over Andre Fili back at UFC 246.
Another future UFC Featherweight Champion is Arnold Allen. Featherweight that I’m extremely high on. Arnold Allen 16-1 record wins over Gilbert Melendez, Nik Lentz, Makwan Amirkhani.
Arnold Allen defeats a high level opponent like Sodiq Yusuff watch out for Arnold Allen in 2020.
Cory Sandhagen vs John Dodson
Lost to Aljamain Sterling definitely sucked for Cory Sandhagen but he still has the potential to become a UFC Bantamweight Champion.
Sandhagen needs a bounce back win to build back his confidence and the perfect opponent is John Dodson.
