Brian Ortega may need surgery on his injured shoulder. Alexander Volkanovski Featherweight Champion Thinking of stepping up and challenging the lightweight position in the next fight. And he’s undergoing surgery on his hand, meaning the UFC could be consolidating an interim title fight by the end of the year between Rodriguez and fellow title challengers Josh Emmett.

Emmett is currently third in featherweight, behind only Max Holloway, Brian Ortega and Yair Rodriguez. Ortega and Volkanovski both underwent surgery, and Holloway has just lost three to Volkanovski. Volkanovski is going to sit for a bit.

Amanda Lemos

Amanda Lemos improved her UFC record to 6-2 on Long Island with a win over Waterson-Gomez when the new rank comes out She was probably in the top 10. Yan Xiaonan was in the double losing streak and fifth in the category.

Xiaonan’s next battle will likely go downhill in the rankings, and Lemos makes a perfect opponent. The two women were youthful side by side. And both women have unique and exciting fighting styles.

Lemos’ Next Battle: Yan Xiaonan

Li Jingliang

Li Jingliang used powerful fists and elbows to end Salikhov Muslim at UFC Long Island. That victory earned him 2-2 over the past two years, with three of the four fights ending before the final bell.

Michel Pereira is a dynamic striker who ranks first behind Jingliang in the welterweight division. His dynamic attack would be a perfect match for Jingliang’s power attack. And there are so many options for everyone in the top 15. This battle makes sense: it’s absolutely exciting. And it will be a nice mark on the winner’s belt when everything is said and done.

Jingliang’s Next Fight: Michel Pereira

Matt Schnell

Matt Schnell is competing in Comeback of the Year and both and Su Mudaerji should be in contention for the year after the UFC Long Island flyweight thriller.

Needless to say over and over: at one point the UFC was going to cut this. Credit to Mick Maynard for flipping the stuff at 125 pounds. Now that we’ve put on his shoes and booked a fight for Schnell, we should add who has two Fight of the Nights in 2022.

Presumably he fights again this year. Alex Perez’s fight is doomed and he is now paired with Alexandre Pantoja. Askar Askarov may lose promotion, but he is third in the flyweight division. See if Shanel can swim with the largest and most dangerous sharks in the waters of the flyweight class.

Schnell’s Next Fight: Askar Askarov

Shane Burgos

Shane Burgos won the decisive victory over Charles Jourdain in one of the best fights on the cards. Burgos was never in a dull fight and performed every time he entered the octagon. In his next fight He should be looking for a big move up in the rankings.

Ige is known for his brawling fighting style and often shows off to his fans. always watched This fight will be a flare from start to finish. If Burgos wins, he’ll push himself into the top ten, and Ige will likely fall behind the top 15. If Ige wins, he’ll snap the loss and prove it. yourself and a warrior like Burgos

Burgos’ Next Battle: Dan Ige

Lauren Murphy

The fact that former women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate appears to have lost a step in her flyweight debut. The performances at Lauren should not be ignored. Murphy wore it at UFC Long Island if there were any questions. that That’s why “Lucky” got her name.

After winning her first battle for the title race against Valentina Failed Chefchenko What’s next for this 40-year-old player? Time is not on her side with all due respect. Manon Fiorot’s winner against Katlyn Chookagian in September should be the next title contender. At least if it’s Fiorot, who will represent the new blood, Chookagian #1 and Murphy #3 are in a similar spot. No one wants to see them in a rematch with the champions.

Troubleshooting? Match them up. Murphy and Chookagian fought for the first time in 2016. There was enough time and they were ranked high enough that the rematches were at least competitive. and may argue for a second gold

Murphy’s Next Battle: Katlyn Chookagian Win or Lose After Fighting Manon Fiorot
