Haim Gozali    Bellator    Welterweight
Gozali will face Ryan Couture in a welterweight contest at Bellator 180 on June 24 at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Fantasy Analysis

Gozali has a 7-3 record with six submissions but has not been a big part of the fight scene for a while. He has only had one fight (November 2016) since 2012, which ended in a submission (heel hook) over Zane Clerk.
Ryan Couture    Bellator    Lightweight
Couture will face Haim Gozali in a welterweight matchup at Bellator 180 on June 24 at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Fantasy Analysis

Couture faces Haim Gozali after back-to-back losses this year (10-5 overall). The American will be moving up a weight class from his normal lightweight category for this fight.
Jared Cannonier    UFC    Light Heavyweight
Cannonier will face Steve Bosse in a light heavyweight bout at the TUF 25 Finale on July 7 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Dave Doyle at MMAFighting.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Cannonier matches his opponent, Steve Bosse, in being a stand-up artist. He has less significant strikes landed per minute (3.28 to 5.99) than Bosse but his accuracy is slightly higher (60 percent to 52 percent). "The Killa Gorilla" will probably avoid the mat because his takedown statistics show a 30 percent takedown defense with only two unsuccessful takedowns attempted on offensive end in four fights with the UFC. Cannonier proved to be a tougher challenge than expected in a unanimous-decision loss to Glover Teixeira in his last bout, so he may be one to look out for.
Steve Bosse    UFC    Middleweight
Bosse will face Jared Cannonier in a light heavyweight bout at the TUF 25 Finale on July 7 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Dave Doyle at MMAFighting.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

"The Boss" will come out swinging at this matchup with Jared Cannonier. Eleven of the fights in the Canadian's career (12-2) have ended in KO/TKO. Over a three-fight sampling, Bosse lands an incredible 5.99 average significant strikes per minute while keeping a 100 percent takedown defense.
Justin Gaethje    UFC    Lightweight
According to WSOF President Ray Sefo, Gaethje is headed for the UFC, though Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting.com reports it is not yet a done deal.

Fantasy Analysis

After fighting his way to a perfect record in the World Series of Fighting (soon to be "Pro Fighters League") promotion, Gaethje will take his talents to the big show and will attempt to work his way up in a tough lightweight division, one of the deepest the UFC has to offer. The 28-year-old is an exciting fighter and could draw a big fight as early as the summer, should negotiations work out as planned. According to ESPN's Brett Okamoto, Gaethje's top choices for his debut would be Edson Barboza, Tony Ferguson or Al Iaquinta.
Omari Akhmedov    UFC    Welterweight
Akhmedov will face Abdul Razak Alhassan in a welterweight matchup at UFC Fight Night 109 on May 28 in Stockholm, Dave Doyle of MMAFighting.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Akhmedov has been with the UFC since 2013 and has faced some key names such as Gunnar Nelson and Sergio Moraes, but has been largely inconsistent over the last few years. The American Top Team product will have an experience advantage, though momentum lands on the side of Alhassan, who is 7-0 in his career with a 100 percent KO/TKO rate.
