Post-UFC Fight Night 90: On the Chopping Block

Łukasz-Sajewski5UFC Fight Night 90 produced an incredibly entertaining night of mixed martial arts action, with 2/3 of the match-ups ending inside the distance. Now with the excellent night of memorable scraps in our rear-view, let’s take a look at which of the evenings competitors we may no longer see in action inside the Octagon… ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK Russell Doane The Hawaiian has dropped three fights in a row since going 2-0 to start his UFC tenure. Coming off back to back decision losses to Iuri Alcantara and Jerrod Sanders, he made am attempt to get back to the win column last night at UFC Fight Night 90 where he took on the Brazlian Pedro Munhoz and ultimately suffered a submission defeat via first round guillotine choke. Doane is a solid bantamweight but after losing three in a row, including a big upset against Sanders and getting finished by Munhoz, I think it is very likely that the promotion will be opting to part ways with him at this point. Lukasz Sajewski Sajewski made his promotional debut against Nick Hein at UFC Fight Night 69 a year ago, where he took on Nick Hein and lost the bout via unanimous decision on the judges’ scorecards. After a year-long layoff, the Pole made an attempt to pick up his first UFC victory at last night’s UFC Fight Night 90, where he took on Blackzilian product Gilbert Burns and lost the bout via armbar submission with only three seconds remaining in the opening stanza. The defeat puts Sajewski on a two fight defecit inside the Octagon, and unless the promotion desparetely needs European fighters for a near-future card, I think there is a fairly decent chance that the Pole will be getting released from his UFC contract.
