Three really big fights have been announced as either confirmed or targeted, I’ll post it which for the three.
First up: Donald Cerrone is to take on Niko Price in a Welterweight fight! This fight is supposed to take place September 19th. This fight is going to be insane, as these two love to put on a show. This fight with a rejuvenated healthy Cerrone vs someone like Niko Price could put on a UFC Hall of Fame caliber fight. This one should still be absolutely amazing. Fight (verbally agreed upon)
Second fight: Charles Oliveira vs Islam Makhachev in a lightweight fight. This fight should be really good and with a win whichever fighter should be one more away from a title shot. I think Islam is taking too big of a step up as he is taking on the most underrated lightweight fighter in the UFC. Oliveira is a guy I believe has shown he is a title challenger and could be very difficult for Khabib. Pre-research predictions are that these two go back and forth a bit early but Charles takes over in round 2 and gets a submission, yes submission. Fight is targeted for UFC 254 on October 24th.
Third Fight: Yair Rodriguez vs Zabit Magomedshapirov, this fight was originally scheduled for August 29th but Yair Rodriguez hurt his ankle. Now Zabit has asked for this fight to be UFC 254 on October 24th as well. So this fight is entirely just rumored as Zabit has been looking for other fights to replace though he won’t take Calvin Kattar’s offer. We shall see on this one.
