Dunham’s defeat was his third in four fights and second straight. He clearly can’t afford another stumble if hoping to remain on the UFC roster. That being said, he’s established enough to receive a legitimate opponent instead of an easily beatable adversary. Jorge Masvidal comes to mind as a solid candidate. Both are well-rounded and would likely produce an entertaining effort. Additionally, each is coming off a loss and needs to remind the public of his place in the upper-tier of the division.
There were twelve losers emerging from the carnage at UFC 167, though most folks would argue one of the involved men was a victim of circumstance rather than his adversary’s abilities. In the evening’s main event, welterweight Johny Hendricks gave it his all against champion Georges St-Pierre over a 25-minute tilt only to have two of the three judges scoring things see things differently than the rest of the world. What’s next for Hendricks, or the other eleven fighters who lost more decisively, remains to be seen but one thing is for sure – fans will be talking about the event for years to come!
