Big Moves In The UFC

There have been a lot of changes within the UFC these past couple of days and as a family can only expect many more big moves in the UFC to come. As we draw closer to Ortega versus Rodriguez, we look at what is at stake for all the fighters involved. Rodriguez believes that if he is the Victor of the Ortega fight, he deserves a shot at the title against Alexander Volkanovski as the featherweight champ.

This is a huge claim as Rodriguez believes if he wins, he will earn himself a title shot. This can be problematic as other fighters believe their opportunity comes first and should be placed over the Rodriguez v Ortega fight no matter what.

Alexander Volkanovski recently closes the chapter in his career titled Max Holloway and now it is in the talks on what is next for the featherweight champion. Alexander has dominated the featherweight division for a while beating the top fighters with only Rodriguez being the only fighter, he has yet to face in the top five.

Alexander‘s quote is saying that the featherweight division isn’t enough for him, and he believes that he has what it takes to be a two-division champion. Alexander wants to be the lightweight champion as well as the featherweight champion.

2 Division Champ

Another top fighter in the featherweight division two rows in the rinks is Josh Emmett. Emmett believes that regardless of the Rodriguez versus Ortega fight that he has first digs at the current featherweight champ and is wanting to make big moves in the UFC.

Emmett has been destroying the featherweight division and currently has an 18-2 record and is the number three ranked featherweight in the division. Alexander has for the best of the best in the featherweight division, and he does not mind fighting Josh Emmett, but he wants to fight a fighter who draws the most attention and Alexander doesn’t believe Josh Emmett brings enough publicity.

24 Hours to choose

Big moves in the UFC, current light heavyweight champion Chael Sonnen has warned the featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski that if he wants the opportunity at the title that he must secure his spot within 24 hours, or he might find another opponent to fight.

As a UFC fan, you can only be excited by the talent that is currently in the featherweight division. We can see that Alexander will be very busy in the next upcoming months which can be a blessing and a curse. Everybody wants to shut at the title and the opportunity to compete in the biggest fights.

Josh Emmett is currently on the five-fight one streak and has beat top contenders in the feather d division and believes that he is up next for an opportunity at the title. He believes that Jair despite fighting Ortega would only be on a one-fight win streak and would not be next up for the belt.

Ultimately the fans decide who they want to see the fight and I believe that a matchup between Alexander Volkanovski and Yair Rodriguez will be able to become a blockbuster and show who’s making big moves in the UFC.
