There was only one fight that had title implications at UFC Wichita – JDS vs Lewis.
I like The Beast and was rooting for him even though he was not the favorite going in. He has had a very lucky streak lately, culminating with a title shot with the other GOAT, DC. What’s next for Lewis? What about Tuivasa? Blaydes? He’s not getting another shot (unless he volunteers on short notice), he’s not one of the elite, and he’s not on an upward trajectory.
He got really lucky with a shell shocked Ngannou. You think Francis acts like a fool if they fight again? I don’t. Blaydes would be a fun fight for him.
What’s next for JDS? He needs two fights before a title shot. Francis and Stipe.
Next for Francis? JDS and Stipe.
Stipe? Francis and JDS.
And of course, none of this matters if –
JDS ktfo Francis or Stipe.
Francis ktfo Stipe.
Stipe ktfo Francis.
Decisions will not do.
