Dennis Bermudez Deserves Top-5 Opponent After Dismantling Clay Guida

Dennis Bermudez

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Dennis Bermudez is on a tear right now in the most-talent rich division in the UFC. A seven-fight win streak is nothing to scoff at, especially when he just added a name like Clay Guida to the list. Guida has been one of the toughest guys that the UFC has ever seen. He has a chin made of iron and a will that won’t break. Bermudez absolutely dominated him. Bermudez was able to fend off every take down attempt that Guida tried and was able to term him apart on the feet.

This win for Bermudez calls for a top-five opponent, and with his win streak, this fight could really gain some traction. So who should his opponent be? I’m thinking Frankie Edgar. Even though Edgar is probably a bit out of his league, it would be an amazing fight. With Bermudez’s win over Guida, Bermudez has instantly established himself as a top-ten guy. Edgar is now without a partner and looking to get back to action fast. It would make sense to match them up. Both are extremely talented wrestlers who have great boxing. I would give the edge in power to Bermudez, but Edgar clearly has the experience and the heart.

This fight could also set up the next title-challenger, although as long as there is a man named Conor McGregor, I doubt anyone is getting a title shot soon. Jose Aldo is injured and Chad Mendes was promised a title shot. A fight between Edgar and Bermudez could really thin the crowd when it comes to top contenders, and it would also give the mixed martial arts community a great scrap to watch.

Dana White Doesn’t Think Conor McGregor Can Beat Rafael dos Anjos

Things are getting interesting ahead of UFC 196. The headlining fight at that March 5 pay-per-view event will see UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor move up to lightweight to face the champion of that division Rafael dos Anjos. If McGregor succeeds he will become the first UFC fighter to hold belts in two different divisions simultaneously. The oddsmakers have McGregor as the favorite ahead of the fight. UFC president Dana White doesn’t necessarily hold the same opinion.

Ronda Rousey’s Mom Predicted Holly Holm Would Knock Her Out

Dr. AnnMaria De Mars is the first woman ever to win a gold medal at the World Judo Championship doing so in 1984. She is also the mother of former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. Further she may be the most vocal critic of Rousey’s coach Edmond Tarverdyan. Appearing on Submission Radio De Mars once again spoke out on Tarverdyan commenting on Rousey’s loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193. “I predicted it in advance Ronda trained with an idiot and a fraud” said De Mars.
