Matches to be played for “Costa vs Vettori” Main Card Winners – .

UFC Vegas 41 crashed yesterday (Saturday, October 23, 2021) inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, which was titled by a light heavyweight fight between Paulo Costa and Marvin Vettori. After the dust settled after 25 minutes of relentless action, Vettori came out on top, sending Costa home with his second straight loss (highlights). In the main co-event, Grant Dawson and Rick Glenn fought for a majority draw after 15 minutes of cage time.

Winner: Marvin Vettori

Who he should face next: Winner of Cannonier vs. Brunson

After finally having the chance to get his hands on Paulo Costa and silence him, Vettori can now put the beefy Brazilian in his rearview mirror and look forward to his next challenge. While not a title shot, Vettori could be another big win away from another crack in the crown. Israel Adesanya and Robert Whittaker could return in the near future, but Jared Cannonier and Derek Brunson are set to fight at UFC 270 in 2022. I would love to see Vettori take on the winner of this fight for a possible strap-on shot. Of course, if Brunson beats Cannonier, he could very well get a title shot soon after. If it works that way, then I’d love to see Vettori take on Adesanya’s loser against Whittaker.

Rematch : Grant Dawson et Rick Glenn

After these two talented lightweight fought for a majority draw, it makes sense to bring them back as soon as possible. And it works for both men, because not only can they settle their accounts, but they can also earn another paycheck this year.

Winner: Alex Caceres

Who should he fight next: Ilia Topurie

Don’t look now, but “Bruce Leeroy” is on the move after securing his fifth straight victory, subduing Seung Woo Choi in the second round after overcoming a vicious illegal knee in the first round. Next to Caceres, I really feel a great showdown against Topuria. In just three fights with the promotion, Topuria has already clinched 10th place after picking up big wins over Damon Jackson and Ryan Hall, both of whom he won by knockout in the first round. This is the fight to be fought next because if Caceres can win he could end up in the Top 15. For Topuria, stopping Caceres’ current streak improves his stock.

Winner: Francisco Trinaldo

Who he should face next: Prix ​​Niko

Trinaldo returned to the win column scoring an impressive victory over Dwight Grant, although he had to work really hard for it, narrowly escaping with a split decision victory. The next step for the longtime veteran should be a fight against another OG from the Octagon to Price. “The Hybrid” just picked up a big win over Alex Oliveira, putting him back in the winning column for the first time in two years. These two men are far from the Top 15 at the moment, but if they can string together a few more wins, who knows what could happen.

Winner: Nicolae Negumereanu

Who he should face next: Tafon Nchukwi

Negumereauno scored a big knockout victory over Ike Villanueva to take him to 2-1 inside the eight-sided cage. The next step for the hard-hitting forward should be a fight against Nchukwi, who comes off a big win himself, beating Mike Rodriguez last month to also move to 2-1 under the UFC banner. Both men are still very young in their UFC careers, so the big fights won’t be on the table for some time. A confrontation between these two newcomers makes sense all around.
