Colby Covington vs. Khamzat Chimaev, Jorge Masvidal vs.

Covington and Masvidal are going in very different directions, but both have worthwhile games on the horizon (Author: Gardener)

Khamzat ChimaevUFC 272 did little to crush the beef between Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal, but one man stood above the other. Covington pulled off a solid win over his rival and now both welterweights need to look up the rankings. Covington faces a smorgasbord of opponents; from more dramatic grudge matches to clashes of the top contenders. Chaos calls for a match against former teammate Dustin Poirier, but that's not his only option. Masvidal is on the worst losing streak of his career, but those losses go to the division's top two rivals, and "Gamebred" has continued star power. Let's take a look at possible next matchups for Saturday's headliners, as well as main ticket winners Rafael dos Anjos and Bryce Mitchell. Winner Khamzat Chiamev: UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman is set to face Leon Edwards sometime this year. That leaves a potential chance for the winner of Burns vs. If Burns throws back the fast-rising star, pairing Burns with Covington makes all the sense in the world. If Chimaev beats Burns, there's a case to speed him up to a title shot against Usman. However, depending on the champion's schedule, the UFC may be forced to book a title eliminator between Covington and Chimaev, potentially with an interim title on the line. Dustin Poirier: Covington settled his grudges with America's top team with Masvidal, but he has another former teammate in his sights. Covington has resorted to lowbrow digging into Dustin Poirier's family for a fight against the former UFC interim lightweight champion. I'm far from convinced that Poirier, a former featherweight, will make Covington happy by moving up to welterweight. Leon Edwards: Let's be clear, Edwards is long overdue for a title shot. He has been repeatedly upset and it's time to book Usman vs. In a world where Edward's bad luck continues, perhaps due to Usman's recovery from surgery, you could pair Covington and Edwards. It's not the hottest matchup, but there's some excitement and you can always beat a tentative title over it. McGregor and Masvidal are fortunate in that their attraction covers their active UFC runs. The UFC can couple their star power, the action is sure to deliver and one of them is bound to win. Nate Diaz: The outcome of the first fight between Masvidal and Diaz was clear enough to justify not booking the rematch. The Diaz fight will always sell. Diaz wants retribution and there's a good chance for Masvidal to bounce back after tough high-profile losses to Usman and Covington. Sean Brady: At the other end of the scale is a duel that could act as a welcome party for an up-and-coming challenger. Brady is a perfect 15-0 with five wins in the UFC. After a significant win over Michael Chiesa, the UFC could hedge their bets by booking Masvidal against Masvidal. Either Masvidal is changing the direction of his swing or serving as a testing ground for a potential young star. UFC fans may be quick to suggest that a dos Anjos vs. RDA rebooking will take time to recover and Fiziev should actively seek to book a fight. Tsarukyan recently competed and is overdue for a big match. Dos Anjos might be looking for a top five opponent, but the rest of the division is pretty tied. If the schedules work, run dos Anjos and Fiziev. No. 6 featherweight ranked Josh Emmett presents an interesting conundrum for Mitchell. He is a featherweight fire engine with great strength and strong wrestling. That being said, Emmett is on a four-fight win streak and should be moving up the division. Top five featherweights Yair Rodriguez and Calvin Kattar could also be viable opponents depending on who Emmett draws next.


Brash superstar predicts first-round KO of Conor McGregor in UFC fight

According to The Problem Child, if ex-UFC champion Conor McGregor boxed Jake Paul, he wouldn't make it past the first round. (Author: Gardener)

Conor McGregorAccording to The Problem Child, if former two-part UFC champion Conor McGregor steps into the octagon with boxer-turned-Youtube sensation Jake Paul, he wouldn't make it out of the first round. That's what Paul said in a recent interview with TMZ Sports. Paul, who is 5-0 in the ring with four knockouts, is actively following a fight with McGregor, either in boxing or mixed martial arts. He recently sent a challenge to UFC President Dana White, stating he would accept a one-fight deal with promotion to fight Notorious under certain conditions. "Dana - Since you like me now how about a 1 fight UFC deal to fight Conor," Paul tweeted March 12. If I lose, I'll donate my entire wallet to any UFC fighter who makes less than $50,000 a fight and never mentions UFC again. And when The Problem Child fights McGregor in an MMA competition, he feels like he'll KO the Irishman within the opening frame. McGregor is still recovering from the broken leg he sustained at UFC 264 in July 2021. However, it appears that Notorious is almost ready to return to MMA training and he has said on numerous occasions that he would like to fight later in 2022. On March 10, Notorious shared a video of himself hitting mittens via social media. The problem child was visibly unimpressed and responded to the video: "It's embarrassing. Her chin is open wide with no head movement for the PROBLEM CHILD'S right hand of God.” In his five professional boxing matches, Paul has defeated two notable MMA names, former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley, twice, and ex-ONE and Bellator Ben Askren. It's not just McGregor that Paul has expressed interest in fighting in an MMA fight. He also tweeted White a few months ago about a possible fight with UFC superstar Jorge Masvidal. I will immediately retire from boxing and fight Jorge Masvidal in the UFC if you agree to: 1) Raise the minimum pay per fight to $50,000 (it's now $12,000) 3) Give all fighters long-term healthcare offer (they previously said brain damage is part of the gig...imagine the NFL said that). There are many UFC graduates who have said publicly that they suffer from brain damage. You have 5 days to accept and implement the above until March 31, 2022. Once implemented I will immediately retire from boxing, join USADA and agree a 1 fight deal with UFC against weak Chin Jorge. To all UFC fighters, it's time to take a stand and create value for you and your peers. You deserve higher pay, you deserve long-term health, and most importantly, you deserve freedom.
