LaFlare doesn’t have the most exciting style but he’s definitely effective as evident by his three wins under the UFC banner. While McGee can be a bit shaky at times, beating him is still a nice feather to fly in LaFlare’s cap and should boost him into bigger bouts come 2014. A name immediately jumping out as a potential opponent is Josh Koscheck since the Ultimate Fighter OG needs a potentially beatable opponent based on his three-fight slide and doesn’t have anything booked while also having enough name value to give LaFlare a signature win if successful. Rick Story would also work in such a capacity. (PHOTO CREDIT: Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports)
Finding a UFC win lacking significance is akin to the proverbial needle in a haystack. However, there’s no question some victories have a larger impact on either a division or the involved individual than others. Such was certainly the case at UFC on FOX 9 where a few underdogs stepped up to the plate and knocked one out of the park, seasoned veterans rose to the occasion, and flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson turned in his best performance to date.
