Post-UFC Fight Night 91: On the Chopping Block

Cody-PfisterThe Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) went to Sioux Falls, South Dakota for the first time in promotinal history with UFC Fight Night 91: McDonald vs Lineker. The card produced a solid night of action that resulted in nine of 12 underdogs coming through big. The new non-Zuffa era of the UFC saw it’s ups and downs with it’s first show but it wrapped up on a high note with bantamweight John Lineker viciously knocking out contender Michael McDonald. The action is now behind us, so let’s take a look at which competitors of the evening we may no longer see inside the Octagon… ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK Eric Spicely Spicely was a contestant on season 23 of The Ultimate Fighter, where he went on to lose to eventual tournament winner Andrew Sanchez in the tournament semi-finals. Despite the defeat, he got the opportunity to make his UFC debut, and it came against Sam Alvey at Wednesday night’s UFC Fight Night 91 in Sioux Falls. Spicely ended up suffering the first official defeat of his professional mixed martial arts defeat, losing the bout via front-choke submission in the very first round of action. I think this was a case of “one and done” with Spicely, as it is with many non-TUF winners who get a shot and lose. I would not be completely shocked to see him get another crack, but I’m fairly confident we have seen the last of him inside the Octagon. Cody Pfister Pfister is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Scott Holtzman at Wednesday night’s UFC Fight Night 91 in Sioux Falls. He is now on a two fight losing streak and 1-3 inside the Octagon, so unless the UFC really wants to see someone else get a win, I think it is more than likely that “The Pfist” will be receiving his walking papers from the promotion. That said, I’m not going to be surprised if I hear of a Cody Pfister vs Jake Matthews fight booking.
