Rematch Wood vs Kenney 2021 Summer

Casey Kenney lost to Dominick Cruz on the UFC 259 Featuring prelims, Yes he lost in a close fight but showed improvements in a tough fight against one of the best Bantamweights of all time. Former UFC Bantamweight Champion, WEC Bantamweight Champion.

Boost up in competition, UFC believed in him. Now time to take a step back and face a top 15-top 20 Bantamweight…. Face Nathaniel Wood.

Nathaniel Wood vs Casey Kenney happened at UFC 254, Prelims bout. High paced, Constant action fight that went three rounds. My opinion Nathaniel Wood won that fight by split decision, Judges scored it wrong.

Time for a rematch, Two HIGH LEVEL Bantamweight rising stars facing each other in the summer of 2021. Pay-Per View Bout or UFC Fight Night. Rewarded a fight of the night bonus.

UFC definitely can tell a story about the controversial fight, Wood and Kenney trash talk on social media, MMA interviews. Building the fight MUCH AS POSSIBLE before the fight happens.

UFC commentators, UFC analyst definitely will be excited for this fight, FIGHT of the NIGHT potential.

Nathaniel Wood remains one of my favorite fighters. Yes he lost to John Dodson but was winning the rounds till he made a mistake in the third round, Dodson being a veteran took advantage of the opportunity and knocked out the “Prospect”.

Brad Pickett’s protégé Nathaniel Wood will show his advancements from the Kenney fight at UFC 259. Challenging the Nine time Judo Champion. High School wrestling champion in Indiana.

“Basic Well-Rounded” Casey Kenney

Casey Kenney calling Nathaniel Wood a basic well rounded fighter but I’m sure he was impressed with Nathaniel Wood. Wood showed his promise of being a UFC Bantamweight title contender in the next few years.

Nathaniel Wood revenging his loss to Casey Kenney, Not handing the fight to the judges. Winning by early submission or dominant performance.

On the other hand Casey Kenney, Rising star. Former LFA Bantamweight Champion can hand the “Prospect” a sixth loss.

Both fighters NEED this win, Moves them up the STACKED Bantamweight rankings. Shows whose the future champion one day!

Lando Vanatta

Lando Vanatta one talented UFC Lightweight, Remembered for his fight with Tony Ferguson that put him on the map. He’s a tough fighter and to me is the right match up for Ottaman Azaitar.

I don’t expect a first round knock out against Vanatta because he’s one of the toughest Lightweights going even though his record doesn’t show it.

Last fight for Lando Vannata was against Bobby Green on August 1st. Vannata vs Azaitar can be scheduled in December in Abu Dhabi.

Love for this fight to happen!!

Rafael Fiziev Next Fight Options ?

Rafael Fiziev impressively defeated Marc Diakiese, Outstriked him in the three rounds. Blown away by his performance and really looking forward to his next fight. Who should Fiziev fight next?

Lando Vanatta

What a sick fight this would be in my opinion, Vanatta vs Fiziev. Vanatta is a very TOUGH Lightweight, Remembered for his fight against Tony Ferguson. Lando will be a intriguing challenge to Fiziev. Fiziev vs Vanatta has fight of the night potential.

Bobby Green

Bobby Green biggest win of his career was his last against UFC Legend Clay Guida. Now Bobby Green can fight a UFC prospect. Bobby Green 25-10 record with a lot of experience can test Fiziev’s IQ see where he’s at currently. Love this fight as well.

Khama Worthy

Coming off two significant wins off AKA prospect Luis Pena and Devonte Smith. Worthy is a rising Lightweight at 33 years old. He’s a talented fighter, Be the biggest challenge for Rafael Fiziev. Worthy vs Fiziev be a stand up fight for three rounds, See the new tools in the tool shed for Rafael Fiziev.

Overall I’m looking forward to Rafael Fiziev next fight and the future for this man, Truly blown away with his kicks. Potential to become a UFC Lightweight Champion.

Motivated and visions himself challenging for the title similar to Gilbert Burns whose on his own hot streak right after struggling for some time.

You don’t need to have the longest winning streak to have a title shot, it is about being active and being ready to go anytime.”

Being active and being ready to go anytime is a smart decision for rising Welterweight Belal Muhammad, Seeking tough match ups like Santiago Ponzinnibbio

“I think the next one should be Ponzinibbio,” Muhammad said. “He hasn’t fought in a while. He’s sitting there calling out Rafael dos Anjos whose lost four of his last five and he’s a (lightweight). I feel like me and him should be fighting.

Geoff Neal vs Michael Chiesa UFC 253

Geoff Neal #10 UFC Welterweight last fight was against Mike Perry at UFC 245. Long layoff for Geoff Neal that lead to Geoff Neal returning to his second as a server at the Texas Steakhouse.

Hungry to fight, Calling out top Welterweights such as Michael Chiesa.

“I really just want to fight Chiesa because he’s been ignoring me,” Neal told MMA Junkie. “Like, at first it was just I want to fight him just to fight him, but now I want to fight him because I feel like he’s being a (expletive). I want that Chiesa fight just off personal (expletive) because he’s acting like I’m invisible to him. I’ve been calling him out for (expletive) months. So, I want that fight. (Expletive) him.”

https://www.bloodyelbow.com/2020/7/2/21310874/geoff-neal-ufc-michael-chiesa-invisible-welterweight-woodley-mma-news

Fight and a win against Michael Chiesa will hopefully make Geoff Neal no longer need to be a server.

Impressive win nevertheless against Chiesa whose last win was against former UFC Lightweight Champion Rafael Dos Anjos.

My opinion Geoff Neal defeating Chiesa will rocket him, Discussed as a future UFC Welterweight Champion.

UFC 253 Cormier vs Miocic is happening August 15th, UFC needs to stack this card top to bottom as a favor for DC. Chiesa vs Neal featuring prelim fight at UFC 253, Main Card slot is the time slots that make sense for Geoff Neal to build up his future.

Looking forward to Geoff Neal’s next fight, Hopefully he fights Michael Chiesa this summer.
