UFC Fight Island 5 crashed last night (Saturday, October 10, 2020) inside a flash forum on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. At the main event of the evening, Corey Sandhagan stunned Marlon Moraes with a spinning heel kick knockout victory (See here again). In the co-title action, Edson Barboza McQueen overtook Amirkhani and returned to the victory column. In fact, the memorable knockout of Joaquin Buckley Impa Kasanganai (candidate of the decade) (See here again).
Winner: Cory Sandhagan
He must fight later: Frankie Edgar
Alzheimer’s Sterling should get that offer to fight Peter Yan anytime for the bantamweight title, if not, Sandegan is ready to fight. When that doesn’t happen, it’s probably a fight against Frankie Edgar. Sure, TJ has the charm of standing him up against Dillashah, but he will not be back until January, and I hate putting “The Sand Man” on the ice until then, especially since he’s ready to go now. That is why the fight against Edgar makes sense. “Answer” was a huge success over Pedro Munhos, and booking this potential comparison as a co-major event for Ann vs. Sterling makes sense for insurance purposes.
Winner: Edson Barboza
Who he will face next: Shane Burgos
Yes, Burgos is losing, but let Barboza act as if he has recently set the war world on fire. His victory over Makwan Amir Khani is his first since 2018, having suffered the defeat of his three fights. Burgos, meanwhile, had his three-fight winning streak by Josh Emmett, so he was hungry for victory. Rank No. 10 At the moment, despite Burgos having four spots behind him in the rankings, I don’t think he will miss the opportunity to face a settled veteran like Barboza.
Winner: Marcin Tibura
Who he will face next: Tom Aspinol
Tibura should get a bump Top 15 After beating Ben Rothwell and winning three in a row, I want to showdown against Aspinall, who also won last night on “Fight Island” over Alan Boudot. While this is not a big name for Tibura, giving him a guy like Aspinol gives him a huge boost as a competitor moving forward with five consecutive wins. For Aspinol, victory over a settled veteran like Tibura will definitely boost his stock and capture the moment he needs the most.
Winner: Dreicus du Plessis
Who he will face next: Rodolfo Viera
Dracus made his impressive UFC debut by defeating Marcus Perez in the first round. The victory gave him a third row and 185 pounds notice, as the confident fighter had already put his scenes on the cream of the crop, as mentioned in his post-fight interview. For now, it’s still a long road to climb, so the fight against Vieira should be after the former champion. Perez had to deal with Vieira before being forced out for reasons not revealed on the show. If he is ready to return soon, the undefeated fighter (7-0, 2-0 UFC) would be a good match for the UFC’s newest striking machine.
Winner: Ilia Topuria
Who he should fight next: Giga Chicadji
I scratch my head somewhat over putting some fights on the cards. I know I’m not paying much attention, but before I choose the fourth hose last night, grant Chicadge, who won three times inside the Octagon – in “Prelims”, Topuria – UFC new – on the main card. Odd for me. I understand, Topuria is invincible, and Yusuf remained intact by defeating Jalal, but first give shine to your vets. However, giga can steal, shine from Topuria they must match.
