“Excellent opponent, and I know we’re getting to higher elite levels,” Polizzi later added. While he said he wasn’t exactly disappointed, he knows he can do even better. “Come Monday, we’re back at it in the gym, we’re looking back at this Carvalho fight saying ‘hey, we goofed up here, hey, we should have done better here,’ and we’re just looking at building on where we’re already at.”

Alex Polizzi vs Liam McGeary be a great fight for Polizzi second appearance in Bellator. Can happen this fall of 2020 at the Mohegan Sun or in Europe, Maybe in London for a future Bellator event.

Second win over a former Bellator Light Heavyweight Champion would rise Pollizi through the Bellator Light Heavyweight rankings quickly.

Already looking forward to his next fight and a suggestion I have for him is Drew Dober. Arman called out Al Iaquinta but that’s next after Dober.

“Next fight, I want to fight with top 15, top 10 guys – maybe (Al) Iaquinta because he is a very strong guy and he fought with Khabib Nurmagomedov. I want to fight with him because it’s a good fight for me.”

Roosevelt Roberts 2020 Rising Lightweight

Roosevelt Roberts Dana White Contender Series alumni is 4-1 now with the UFC. Latest win coming in the main card, Rear naked choking Brok Weaver. Somewhat of a coming out party for Roosevelt Roberts, Starting 2020 the right way and can end it being a potential top 15 UFC Lightweight.

Roberts will become a serious challenge to the Lightweight Division with his jiu-jitsu, Still has room to improve and will see that improvement in his next fight against Matt Frevola.

Roosevelt Roberts came from a tough upbringing in Miami, In his teenage years was a drug dealer to support himself. Than his life changed once he started training in MMA, Motivated to provide for his daughter.

Looking back where he came from no way Roosevelt Roberts will never give up.

“If somebody would have told me that when I was younger, I would have never believed it,” Roberts said. “I’d probably be doing some crazy stuff or living a crazy-ass lifestyle, but I definitely would not be where I’m at now. It came further down the line where it started becoming a dream of mine. Back then, I was living so fast, thinking live fast, die young, so I didn’t really see past the next year. I always just looked for the next day.”

https://www.ufc.com/news/roosevelt-roberts-never-imagined-having-this-life

Watching Roosevelt Roberts living his dream, No more living day by day as he’s living for the future. Roberts in future can become a top 15 Lightweight in 2021.

Two more fights I expect for Roosevelt Roberts in 2020 with fighting Matt Frevola and fighters like Lando Vannata, Renato Moicano or Luis Pena.

Roosevelt Roberts vs Vannata or Moicano would be great fights to watch in the winter of 2020.

Defeating either Vannata, Pena or Moicano will be a great end to the year 2020. Year that begins the rise for Roosevelt Roberts.

Ricky Simon vs John Dodson ? UFC Summer

Ricky Simon lost to Urijah Faber in the first round. Mentally defeated but came back with no mullet against Ray Borg, Former UFC Flyweight Title Challenger. Looks gradually everything is coming together for the 27 year old Bantamweight.

“I definitely appreciate this win because Ray fought Demetrious Johnson for a world title,” said Simon. “And I’m not one of those guys who just wants to coast and get easy fights. All my fights have been tough fights and I’m constantly improving and I’m definitely sitting back and appreciating it, but this morning (last Friday), the first thing I did when I woke up was go on a four-mile run and I’m trying to figure out when I can get back to the gym.”

https://www.ufc.com/news/ricky-simon-unlocking-his-abilities

The hungry Ricky Simon training already after a three round fight definitely excited for his next fight in 2020, The right fight for him is John Dodson. Another UFC Flyweight Title Challenger he can face and defeat to move up the Bantamweight Rankings.

I belong at the top of the division. I’m 16-3 now. I have the experience, and he’s an ex-title challenger. That means a lot, too. I have the experience and I just proved that I have the talent, as well. … I just have something in me.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.essentiallysports.com/ufc-news-im-a-problem-ricky-simon-explains-why-bantamweight-division-needs-to-buckle-up/amp/

Ricky Simon believes he’s a top 15 Bantamweight, Fight against #13 John Dodson can place him as a top 15 Bantamweight.

Ricky Simon signed a 4 fight deal pre Ray Borg, In these four fights we can see Ricky Simon finish the deal being a Bantamweight contender, But a win over Dodson will help guide him to his dream!!

Darren Till vs Jarred Cannonier UFC July

Darren Till last fight was against Kelvin Gastelum. Impressive win but wasn’t enough to impress Israel Adesanya. Tells Darren Till to wait in line for his opportunity.

“So he has some work to do. If he f****d up Gastelum and smashed him out in the first round then we can talk, maybe. ‘I was impressed by the performance but pick a number, get in line.”

Till’s ability to keep Gastelum out of striking range impressed ’The Last Stylebender’, who added: “I liked the fight, I liked the distance control. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.express.co.uk/sport/ufc/1201113/Israel-Adesanya-Darren-Till-Kelvin-Gastelum-UFC-244-UFC-News-And-Rumours/amp

Since Darren Till has to wait in line, He can fight a quiet Top Middleweight Jarred Cannonier. Jarred Cannonier on a three fight winning streak, Wins against Jack Hermansson, Anderson Silva and David Branch.

Move down to Middleweight was the best decision he’s made, Win over Darren Till will be the best win by far. Will build the brand, profile of Jarred Cannonier.

Darren Till vs Jarred Cannonier can be scheduled in a UFC Fight Night, Fly to Fight Island wherever that it is. Main Card slot fight that the fans will love and be hyped for.

The fight of Till vs Cannonier was supposed to happen at UFC 248 but Jarred Cannonier torn his pectoral muscle. Now healed the match can go on. Be a Middleweight contender, Option for Israel Adesanya to defend his title next after Paulo Costa.

Leon Edwards vs Wonderboy Thompson UFC July ?

Leon Edwards getting screwed in all of this. Woodley takes the fight with Gilbert Burns, Masvidal and Usman not happening now. Masvidal might fight Conor or Colby. Leon Edwards is stuck, Pretty much not fair for him and needs a fight!!

Next fight for Leon Edwards can be against Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson. Wonderboy challenged Woodley for the UFC Welterweight Title, They were tough fights and Wonderboy is always a challenge.

Speaking to BT Sport, White said that Edwards will next fight on Fight Island and his next opponent will be someone ranked highly at 170lbs, though White isn’t sure who that will be just yet.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bjpenn.com/mma-news/ufc/leon-edwards-will-fight-next-on-fight-island-against-high-ranked-opponent-says-dana-white/%3famp

“(The) only reason I wanted to fight Woodley was because he was a former world champion and the Usman fight was taken away from me because of Masvidal, so anyone above me is the only option right now.”

https://www.google.com/amp/s/mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2020/05/leon-edwards-firm-next-fight-title-shot-or-number-1-contender-ufc/amp

Even though Wonderboy isn’t a top five Welterweight he’s still a great fighter who will beat most Welterweights. Looked great against Vicente Luque.
