UFC Fight Night Takeaways: Dos Santos/Miocic 3?

Share This Post

Man, has this summer been filled with UFC cards or what? I cannot remember a summer with as many cards as we have had this year. They haven’t all been home runs, but every card has gave us something to talk about. This one is no different. Junior Dos Santos is back into the Heavyweight title picture, and “Super” Sage is making waves with his comments after a knockout win.   

Dos Santos/Miocic Trilogy?

With Dos Santos taking a decision win over Blagoy Ivanov and Stipe dropping the belt last weekend, we now are looking at a rubber match between the two. With Stipe losing in such dramatic fashion, he may need to fight another fight before getting a rematch against Cormier. Why not a rematch with another former champ in Dos Santos?

I know it’s crazy, but hear me out. Stipe needs a fight that makes him feel safe, but is still intriguing. A Dos Santos rematch makes sense for both. Gives Dos Santos another chance at a title fight, and Miocic needa a rebound win before another Cormier fight. 

Sage Northcutt Heavyweight?

After a knockout of Zak Ottow, Sage Northcutt is already pondering his future. The 22 year old said “When I fight at 170, I have way more energy and strength. At 155, I feel too drained because I walk around so lean.” He added “Who knows?” when asked about moving up to middleweight. “If you look at my brother, my brother’s like (6-foot-4), and he’s only 19 years old. So I hope I’m as tall as him.

“I might be 6-5. I could be 220, 230 pounds. I have no idea. My mom’s dad was 6-5. I could be fighting at 185 in the future. But first, 170.” That is a scary proposition to think about. His skill and speed at 230, he would be a force in the division. But for now, he needs to keep it up at welterweight.

“Money” Mendes is back

Hey, everybody look, he isn’t dead. I joke, but he has been gone for 2 years after getting popped for a PED. He got a two year sentence(which is ludicrous), but even with the time off Mendes looked great. Jury was riding a two win streak after a rough start to his featherweight career. Taking out the tough Jury, Mendes didn’t just prove he was back, he might be better.

After his last loss to Edgar due to being over-aggressive, he came out and took his time. A single left started the stoppage, but from the few punches Mendes threw, you knew he was seriously fast. He didn’t even absorb any damage, as Jury only landed low kicks and a knee to the body. Mendes came back at a perfect time, as no one knows what’s going on with Holloway. He sits right in the title mix and has the tools to get a shot.
